Hi all!

Sorry it's taken so long, but we've finally settled on what is now a consistent branding across our sites, and the forums have been
souped up to match! I've made sure its super fast, and is actually very clean and easy to work with. It is a commercial theme but
hey, it's worth it, as long as our community has a better experience.

(And yes, our phpbb is up to date :D)

It's very nice, I like it but as I said in another post, the style sets the minimum/default font to 10px making the experience a little unpleasant for those with poor eyesight like my self.

This only happens in areas where no font size is stipulated, such as when posting, as the font size will default to 10px...

With Firefox I can set the minimum font larger but then that affects all other sites... I can Ctrl+ but then everything is enlarged, would be easier to set the default to 11px, it won't adversely affect anything else...

Currently investigating this to find the most maintainable way in which to implement this.

I've been developing styles and mods/extensions for phpBB for about twelve years now...
In that time I have designed many style and ported over 200 to work with my portal mod/extension...

In phpBB all styles are based on Prosilver (the default style), from memory I guess almost all styles use 11px as the default... this style uses 10px...

It only require one edit to the style sheet...
