Text Styling Update

As previously promised, we've been listening to the feedback in the various forums and have just released some changes that will hopefully address the concerns some of you have had about the legibility of the text.

With the main update in November, we brought the styling of the text in line with the main RSPB site, but several people commented that it wasn't easy enough to read. We made some initial changes to make the text both larger and darker than we use on the main site but there were further requests to use a 'heavier' font, so we've now updated the community to use just that - it's now using a bolder version of the same font we use on the main site.

Several other changes have been made to make the text as legible and usable as possible throughout the community area, such as improving some of the text colouring and reducing the leading (ie. the space between lines) to fit more text into a screen view, while keeping it comfortable enough to read easily.

Please do reply to this thread with feedback... everyone is different and different browsers and devices display text significantly different in some cases, but we hope that this resolves the issues some of you have been having.

Please let us know!

Thanks,

Elliott.

  • Hi TeeJay,

    It’s definitely on our list. We’ll keep you posted once we find the best solution.

    Thank You.

    This is not a reproach, but it was a handy example of a time-consuming nuisance, in that, because you didn't quote TeeJay's post I had to click on View More to find it and find out what was "definitely on our list". 

    The View More feature is going to be an awful bind when "we" (we know who we are) are in full swing come March.

    I'm very much engaged with monitoring an eagle cam so am not keeping up here daily, but as soon as I logged on yesterday I was impressed with the new font - thank you, IT Bods!

    Yes Scylla, as I said in my last post, totally agree. Seems we are not the only ones wanting this.

    Edit. same must have happened to me, not shaded!
