My b2evolution Version: Not Entered

Does anyone know of a plugin that allows a user to increase or decrease font size from the front end? This is what I'm looking for: http://www.bonaventuresenior.com/communities/index.asp - look at the top. This is a really nice feature that I'd love to be able to incorporate to some sites. If anyone has any tips on how to do this I'd love to hear them!

Thanks for this plugin! I believe b2evolution users have been asking for something like this for years...

The only problem I see is that it must be placed in unusual places such as where the Widget containers are instead of the posts main area or immediately above the text area.
Also, if the "+A-" could be preceded by some text explaining what the signs are for, it would be perfect.

When you hover the buttons, the title desc. is displayed already.

But i added option to change labels for buttons though, just download it from the svn.

btw, what can be more flexible than a widget ?

and please make it a habit of reporting to plugin's thread, not the request thread for others to find

Thanks for the modifications, I will try them today.

I agree that a Widget is very flexible, but in my case, I haven't found an easy to see spot within my blog where to place it.

Take a look if you please: http://www.literanova.net/index.php

If you ask me it's perfectly fine up there in your blog, you got a lot of whitespace there already.Maybe you could just float it to the right instead of left, which is more traditional.

Widgets are the most flexible things, as much as the templates allows them to. You can add as many containers as you wish in anywhere on the page.You dont have to use the default widget containers.

Thanks for your opinion, I will try the buttons option so that it becomes more visible.

Great plugin!

There are no buttons actually, the links change the font size.just there is an option to change link text.

If you find it useful, you could add a buttons option in the future, anyway it is a nice plugin.

What about CSS? You can put the widget in any container and place it on the page with "position:absolute; top:20px; right: 20px"

exactly. think of containers as rows, table rows if you may, you can slide your containers content anywhere horizontally/vertically as you wish.

the example sam2kb wrote will just work fine, the below will also allow you to put the widget virtually anywhere you want taking your widget container as a starting point.

#container_div {position:relative;}
#widget_content {position: absolute;}

How would I go about forcing the font for this to a certain color. As it is, it's taking it's font color from the style.css but I want my header links to be one color, and this widget to be a different color.

The problem can be seen here: http://wccoa.org/index.php/Contact/ - I want those top links to be white but my text resizer (which is in the top right) is also white so it can't be seen...

Code

div.text_resizer a {
    color: #000000;}

Mar 25, 2011 21:44

my bad.. hierarchy overwrite.

Code

div#tq-header div.text_resizer a {
    color: #000000;}

When viewing a blog with this plugin in Internet Explorer 8, I'm getting this error:

Webpage error details

Message: Syntax error
Line: 1

Message: Object doesn't support this property or method

Also, sometimes when using the text resize plugin, it opens the Skins folder instead of increasing or decreasing the size of text. This last behavior happens with any browser.

yea that's the # in the href.. i gotta cancel that one. but i have to look into the IE error issue. ie gets all confused even by a simple extra comma in js.

Hi tilqicom,

Please advice us at this thread when you update your plugin. Thanks!
