Forum fonts?

Post by Jellydonut on Wed Jul 25, 2012 1:06 pm

I'm not sure where I'd put this thread, but this is probably the best forum to make it in.
It seems like the only font that looks good on my forums is Verdana. I hate the font, but any other fonts look to narrow or weird. I've tried most of the main fonts such as Arial and Trebuchet MS. They just don't look right. What font do you use on your forum? And is there a way to avoid making the font look narrow or strange? It might just look that way to me because I'm used to seeing verdana on my forum.

Hi,

You can use any font on your foum, and users will be able to see it as long as the font is installed on their computer

examples:
Spoiler:

I love cool fonts
I love cool fonts
I love cool fonts
I love cool fonts
I love cool fonts
I love cool fonts
I love cool fonts


Use this:
Code:
[font=font name here] TEXT HERE [/font]

I know, I'm just asking for font suggestions, because I can't seem to find a font that looks good
And I'm looking for a font for the entire forum, not just my posts

Take a look at these Jelly and pick one out. In your AP>>Display>>Colors>> the first font in your list of fonts is not installed on your computer the second font in the list is used, as so on.

This link has some nice looking fonts:

This link below shows "Web Safe" fonts meaning most every if not all computers have them already installed:

Personally I like Verdana in the web safe category.
