Hi,

I wonder if I can change the font in Xenforo. I would like, if possible, to make it darker and bigger. It's just better for the old folks.

See the difference:

vs.

Right on this forum is already different and more readable than, let's say DP. So, it must be possible. I guess a better question is; how can the fonts be changed.

Thank you for your time. I am making a serious and life decision of which forum to go with and I am preferring Xenforo. I see that there is a lot of room for customization.

Another quick question while I am at it; is there a way to show 'Best Post' or 'Best Content' which may not necessarily be due to it being the 'Best Answer'. Like, a way to rate/star a post. It's something I always wanted after being a long time user of vBulletin.

Everything can be changed either via Style Properties, by editing the templates, or adding to EXTRA.css.

There is no "best post" function built in. There may be an add-on available though.

Yes, the font can be fully customised in Xenforo via Style Properties within the Admin Control Panel. :)

I am not sure about your second question, but I am pretty sure there are modifications that will give you functionality for thread/post ratings. You can take a look at this one: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/thread-ratings.2276/, or you could even use Xenforo's built-in "Like" feature as a way to scale ratings. There is a modification for going a bit more in-depth with them as well.

Edit: Got Ninja'd by Brogan. lol

That add-on looks great, Abnormalyze. (y)

I just have to say the community of Xenforo is fantastic!

At Xenfor0: There's an add-on for that! :)

I think I am now just waiting for some dough to make my purchases. I like the speed and many things about this product. The support is impeccable and this forum is vibrant. I feel comfortable and know that if I have a question I can always come here and ask.


Cheers
