I just updated the WordPress Theme we use around here (Portfolio Press, if you’re interested) and thought no more about it.
Then I saw a couple of comments about things looking different, so I logged on the same way you guys do to take a look (normally I don’t need to do that). Looks like the update has changed the default fonts, so it’s not you guys’ equipment, and you’re not going crazy.
It is quite startling, having got used the old “look”, and I don’t think it’s an improvement particularly. It’s possible there’s something I can do about it when I have time to look under the hood.
It does seem legible enough, at least to me on this big screen. No idea what it’s like on a laptop or a handheld thingy though, so let me know if it’s so bad as to be a frustration.
I dunno, maybe we’ll get used to it. I do like the old setup better, but I’m not sure if that’s just because I was accustomed to it. I would probably not be put off by this font set if it had been the default when I chose the theme.
When I get chance I’ll look into what options are available without having to go down to code level, meanwhile your honest feedback will be helpful….
