Content Font size change? getting rid of AAA?

Me again:P

Two small problems....
1. I would like to get rid of the AAA (change size thingies). Problem is, I need the space above and shown on a laptop the AAA is now below the topmenu. Is it enough to just delete the pictures (large.gif & Co or do I need to change something in the .css)?

2. I would like to change the content font. (just only for the content, not generally) There seems to be a standard font in a certain size on every content I post - unless I formate it otherwise. As the standard content font of the template shows also on the fireboard forum, I guess I need to change it in the .css

But again, I couldnt find it. (Just need to make it a bit bigger) I have the impression that it is too small when you have to read a lot.

Would be glad if someone could help
Thank you

Sorry for late reply.

Remove this from index.php:

[code:1]<div id =\"font\">
<a href=\"javascript:void(0)\" title=\"Smaller font size\" onclick=\"changeFontSize(-1);return false;\"><img src=\"http://demo.youjoomla.com/mint/templ...all.gif\" alt=\"\" border=\"0\" /></a><a href=\"javascript:void(0)\" title=\"Medium font size\" onclick=\"revertStyles(); return false;\"><img src=\"http://demo.youjoomla.com/mint/templ...ium.gif\" alt=\"\" border=\"0\" /></a><a href=\"javascript:void(0)\" title=\"Larger font size\" onclick=\"changeFontSize(1);return false;\"><img src=\"http://demo.youjoomla.com/mint/templ...rge.gif\" alt=\"\" border=\"0\" /></a>
</div> <!-- end fonts div-->[/code:1]

To change font look for this line in css/template_css.css:

[code:1]body {

margin:0 auto;


padding: 0px;

font: 76%/1.5 Arial, Helvetica, Sans Serif;

color: #333333;

background:url(../images/bg2.gif) repeat;

Thank you, went perfectly for the AAA.

But the fontsize....

I tried playing around with the % .....e.g. font: 200%/1.5 Arial, Helvetica, Sans Serif; instead of 76% but it stayed the same. Did I misunderstand something?

First of all, thank you very much for the great Mint Fresh template (J1.5). I am using a test bed and xamp, therefore and unfortunately, I am not able to give you a link. I am experiencing the same font issue as Ellie_ and made changes to font: 76%/1.5 Arial, Helvetica, Sans Serif; but no matter what changes I make, the font stays the same. What is /1.5 for?. please, give us an example to use and then we can change the font size accordingly. I tried the following separate different line for the font and font family

font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Sans Serif;

font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Sans Serif;

but no luck.

Your assistance would be very much appreciated and I thank you in advance.

Sincerely yours!

Hi - In the future, kindly do not post inside someone else's post unless you are attempting to help that person. The post you posted in is over two years old.

That said, I took a quick look at the issue you reported. Some font sizes may be overridden by others elsewhere in the CSS or JS. You may have to manually tweak font sizes in a specific area to achieve the desired results.

I am going to close this thread, so if you have additional questions, kindly open a new one. Cheers!
