Updated design

No – you’re not imagining it. This site looks a bit different today.

  • We’ve updated the design, especially on mobile devices. The site is now “responsive”, meaning that the text and pictures should be the right size no matter what screen size you use – from mobiles, through tablets to big screen computers.
  • We’ve also changed the font to a more modern looking sans serif font.

Please leave a comment if you encounter any bugs or things that do not look good yet. And of course: feel free to say what you think about the changes.

    Hi,
    I think font is not very good. It is very thin and light. That modern look is hard to read.

    re: ... right size no matter what screen size you use ...

    Did you happen to try it full screen on a 32-inch 2560x1440 monitor?

    Actually, it's OK, if a bit bigger than needed.

    Darker font, please. A pale font looks classy, but my eyes need more contrast to read easily. Thanks.

    Also, Reading view on a smaller Kindle Fire no longer works, so I can't view just the article content, enlarged, and with word wrap so text doesn't fall off the edge of the screen. I think site designers are often young and myopic, both literally and figuratively, but then I'm an old, half-blind curmudgeon.

    Serif was developed to make reading easier. San serif is much more difficult
    to read. I vote for changing it back. I hope you will consider that.

    I like it on my Samsung Galaxy Tab. The font size adjusts well for me. I hold it in my hand about 8-12" from my face and read with my one very nearsighted eye and no bifocals. (My other eye has issues.) I imagine quite a few of us could be in "mature" situations.

    The font appears large on my computer monitor, noticeably larger than other websites. I find it a bit difficult to read.

    Serif fonts are easier to read quickly, but sans serif is the modern trend, especially for media with shorter written passages. A book in sans serif would be a chore.

    I think we can safely assume that's one platform extensively tested. :)

    Everyone having issues needs to know that they can control what font/size/color/weight their browser uses to render any website. By default, your browser is probably set to allow pages to control it.

    On FireFox, for example, this is in Options > Content > Fonts & Colors [Advanced]

    Nice change! It is a lot easier to read on my laptop (then again, I'm sixty nine).

    Looks good on my iPad.

    Sorry, that was my issue. I installed Open Sans fonts, and now it is okay. The font is good.

    Can you explain how to change it on Chrome?
    I don't know where the "options" are.

    I don't use Chrome (that I know of - I really don't know what my phone's browser is), but try:

    I found this site a short time ago, so I am still learning to navigate my way around it.
    I'm also just getting started on the LCHF lifestyle. Wanting to loose 20kgs.
    Would you consider putting a "New comments" tab so newbies like me can see the very latest comments with ease.

    Nah. That didn't do it. I don't think there is a
    way for the reader of a blog to change the
    fonts on that blog.
