Is it just me or did the font on the site go tiny a few weeks ago. I would blame my computer or my eyesight but the Twitter feed on the right is the same size.

I can barely read the discussions now.

Anyone else? Do I just need special reading glasses for this site?

Logo, font, organization all changed.

Hi Nancy - we rolled out a modified design theme, and are admittedly still working out some kinks with the consistency of fonts across the site.  It seems that depending on the browser and the user's browser settings, sometimes fonts are very consistent and other times not.  Would you mind sharing the browser version you're using, and possibly even a few screenshots?

Thanks for your patience as we get it worked out.

The changes to the logo and organization were quite cosmetic. 

The logo size was reduced to allow more page content to appear above the scroll line, and an apostrophe was added to match the other text references to the site name which have been Leslieville'r for about 8 months now.

Your reference to organization, I assume, is to the top navigation.  The same items appear there except for the rarely clicked "Store" which was moved under Company.  A couple of the other navigation items were renamed - "Blogs" became "Bloggers", and "About" became "Company".  The right-to-left order was shuffled so that the most often used items are closer to the left.

Hopefully things aren't too difficult to read or find.  It is indeed a work in progress, so specific feedback is definitely welcome and appreciated.

Hi Nolin
I'd happily give you a screen print of what I'm seeing but I can't figure out how to do it.  Ctrl Scr Prt and Alt Scr Prt don't do it in Windows 7.
I use Firefox, version 5.0. I'm on a pc laptop.

I didn't meant to nitpick. I really appreciate you running this site (I donated!).  If I have to wear reading glasses to see it, so be it.

The Leslieviller content - Discussions, Blogs and Forum - are the tiniest. The Groups and Events are small but not as tiny. The Twitter feed and the ads are regular sized.  If I figure out how to do a screen print, I'll send one to you.

Looking at it on Firefox on a Mac, the tiny fonts are in Discussions and Forum, but Bloggers is a comfortable size. Don't know what the differences are in specification on your pages.

My condolences, Nolan: I had to deal with these nitpicky issues for years because of nonstandards. I know it's not easy, but it really helps. I'm definitely seeing leetle fonts too.

May I make a suggestion? When you do a reorganization/renaming/rebranding, how about a blog article to describe it with some screen shots so we know what you're creating, and can let you know if there are discrepancies between the desired output and what we're seeing?

The fonts are small. I'm using Safari 5.1 and the font is miniscule on the home page.

Thanks all! We will keep working on it.

Have you tried using Control + to increase the overall size of the page on your screen? That should help.
Thanks Naomi. Now the Twitter feed is huge, but at least I don't have to stress my eyeballs reading the Discussions.
Any improvements on your end?  We've attempted to bump and standardize font sizes on most, if not all, of the seemingly inconsistent text types.

Yes! It looks larger.  My eyes thank you, Nolin!

Leslieville Local Business Marketing - 10 ways to use TheLeslieviller.com

Posted by Nolin (Admin) on February 3, 2011 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
