WordPress.tv: Increase font sizes site-wide

Reported by: davidjlaietta Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: WordPress.tv Keywords: needs-screenshots ui-feedback


The current site is based around a 13px body font, which is approximately equivalent to a 10pt print font, and 80% of a standard browser font size.

Admittedly this is a personal peeve when I see sites that go infuriatingly small like that. I want to easily be able to read content related to a video, especially when we pride ourselves on being as accessible as possible.

I propose bumping the body font up to 16px, and other small font sizes up around 2px higher than they currently are, keeping the existing size hierarchy, just more sizier :)

13px to 16px is a pretty big leap. Screenshots before and after would be a good place to start.

Absolutely. This would probably go along with https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/1457 to increase the area that most of the text takes up on single view pages. In fact I'm going to attach the same files, since I bumped up the font size from 13px to 16px on my second screenshot that shows the proposed meta sidebar width
