Forums text size button

Post by ancestral » February 20th, 2015, 10:42 pm

I found a feature on the forums I’ve never noticed before.

In the top right corner there is a text size button. Clicking on it cycles through the text size. When I sign in on my phone, this looks like it could be pretty handy. However, this button is completely missing when signed in.

Is this an oversight? Can we get this button back?

That image is a bit misleading though, it cycles between 3 sizes, while image gives impression it is divided to two buttons.

Tried this with mobile, button is there and works and is useful. Tested both before and after logging in.

It's there for me whether I am signed in or not. Are you sure it's not just getting cut off on your phone's display? (The forum is not really designed well for mobile devices.)

I never noticed that button. I just signed off to have a look: it was there; now that I'm signed on again it's not. (Win/FF)
I have a cunning plan.

The button in question is only provided by the prosilver template, and neither of you (ancestral and nuorc) have selected a forum style built upon it.

That makes sense… which is too bad, as I like the wesnoth theme.

I think the greater issue here is the lack of a mobile-optimized style.
