Disabling the style chooser

Hello TF members,

Sorry, I had to disable the Font Style and Size option in the message editor. Clicking on the Fonts and Size pull-down menu won’t display anything. I did this because it really gets tiring editing the errant posts one at a time.

Another more important reason is: I’ve enabled the Style Chooser in the footer of each page, so each user (the one reading the thread, not the one posting) can choose to display the threads and posts either in Serif or Sans Serif style.

Serif style looks like this:

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Sans Serif looks like this:

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

The Style Chooser will only work if the poster didn’t specify a font in his/her post. Serif fonts are easier to read than Sans Serif fonts, expecially for long texts.

Thank you very much for this version up.

If there is a check system that automatically detects the text speak, it will be perfect.
(Well, I know I am asking you too much.)

As for the font type, I always love Sans Serif, use it for my own memos and e-mails etc.
Even my own handwriting is affected by frequent use, and looks like Sans Serif, or so I believe.

It’s not as bad as you think, docomo. OK lang. :slight_smile:

Hello puting tainga, I use Sans Serif myself when reading the forum. Text-speak-detecting forum? A lot of people would like that idea. :slight_smile:
