Need guideance with custom theme and Large Font extension

Post by Bitty Beauty »

I am working on enabling the Large Font extension for my forum users. The extension works great when the user's theme is set to Prosilver. But when the user theme is set to my custom theme, which is basically a recolored version of Prosilver, the three Large Font options are missing from the bottom of the "edit global settings" area of the UCP Board Preferences.

Both themes have the same ucp_prefs_personal.html file (line-per-line).

I'm guessing the extension is looking for perhaps a style or something that doesn't exist in the customized theme. Could someone point me in the right direction as to where to look? Thank you.

Hi The easiest way to start would be to make a copy of the extensions prosilver directory and rename it the same name as your custom style, then purge the boards cache

so you will have
  • hifikabin
    • largefont
      • styles
        • prosilver
        • custom-style
If that does not work, please can you let me have a set of your Custom Style files so that I can investigate further

Ah yes, that solved the problem, thanks! It now works great on the custom-colored Prosilver theme too. Thank you for making the extension. It helps those of us with bad eyesight :lol:
