Description

The plugin theme has some styles that make it hard to read, especially when it comes to plugins listings.

Here is a collection of improvements we can make easily.

  • Stop orphans
  • Make default text size 16px (it's 18px).
  • Use Inter as default font (matches new designs).
  • Use #1e1e1e as default font color (matches new designs).
  • Add spacing between list items.
  • Lowercase titles

Remember that the plugin pages also are available in translated versions.
The Inter font seems to be lacking glyphs for Hebrew, Arabic, Persian, CJK, among others.

Some typographic adjustments may need to be restricted to certain languages.

This is very nice. I like it.

My only real thought is the inclusion of so much bulleted bold text makes my eyes water and the overuse of bold inside bulleted list items is one of those over-uses that causes me to just ignore it.

I agree. Since that content comes from readme it's probably best to work on that in a new ticket.

I'll close this ticket seeing that the font is the only remaining change and it will be addressed at a later date when we update the parent theme.
