Description of problem

Hello!

I'm setting up this forum and wanted to choose another font then what is given by default for the board. But, every time i choose another font, I get the problem of having the spacing between the lines of text so small, that the text runs into the other. As a result no font is usable as this occurs over and over no matter what i choose.

How can I fix and increase the spacing between lines of text?

Thanks for you help! Very Happy

Hi there.

If you are familiar with the code CSS, you can use the property "line-height" to increase the space between lines. Like you adjust the whole forum if it is the entire thing by...

Code:
body {
  line-height: 2px;
}

Hi Draxion!
Thank you, but i'm not familiar with dealing with the CSS coding I've never had to do much with them. Now, it's not the whole forum. When scrolling through the main forum page, the spacing works fine. But, every time there's a message like posts, topics, etc, then the space between the lines messes up.

Is there a CSS code i can just add, if so where do i put it on? If not, please explain more Smile
Thanks!

Can you send me a test account, or take your forum out of maintenance so I can see how spaced out they are? Thanks.

Ok, I've taken the forum out of maintenance and given permission for a guest to view the topic inside the forum called "Play Nice". You'll be able to see the "rule policy" which gives a good example. Since my last post, I have tweaked the font some more and it seems that the font I used along with its size helps a bit but the "line spacing" is still off (not running into each other but still touching). I'd like to have a more regular spacing in between lines, like we get here or on a Microsoft document.

Thanks for your help Very Happy

Sorry, but your forum is still blocked from view as guests to see the problem. Can you send me a test account? Thanks.

I've just went to my new forum without login in and it is now working. Anyone can access "Play Nice", you can even try to post something to see how it writes.


I've never dealt with a "test account" before, if you still need me to do that, could you please walk me through it?

Thanks for bearing with me Smile

I would be glad to, but let's first see if we can do something else. Can you link me to the area you are talking about? Thanks.

Oh, my bad... I was looking at the wrong forum. Put this into your CSS.

Code:
.postbody {
  line-height: 25px;
}

It's okay, it crossed my mind that you might have been looking at my other forum.
Gotta go now, but I'm gonna try to add the code as soon as I'm back and will let you know how it turned out.
Thanks again for taking the time to help me! Smile
