Font size

I'm having trouble finding a tag to change font sizes. Any help or any articles to look for? - Bango Skank 22:28, 16 July 2006 (BST)

try <div style="font-size:8pt;">Text</div> Change "8pt" to whatever size you need. --SirensT RR 22:34, 16 July 2006 (BST)
Great, thanks. - Bango Skank 22:36, 16 July 2006 (BST)
Actually, unless you're doing a block of text, I wouldn't do div. For changing text inline, use something along the lines of <span style="font-size: 12pt">Text</span>. –Bob Hammero ModB'cratTA 02:03, 17 July 2006 (BST)
Ug. I knew there was another way to do it. I couldn't remember what it was. I think <p> works too. --SirensT RR 03:59, 17 July 2006 (BST)


I am trying to figure out how to make the line indented or bulleted to signify a reply. If I just indent it with spaces,

    it looks like this.

Which is not what I am after. Anyone know how? --BlackScarletLove 20:50, 16 May 2007 (BST)

You put a : before your post (like I just did). If you're replying to a vote on the suggestion page however, you need to put the # in (like everyone else does to number their posts) followed by the : (like so #:) to indent, but not screw up the numbering system -- boxy T L ZS Nuts2U DA 04:02, 17 May 2007 (BST)

Actually, I just made a section for this and re'ing on the general editing page. --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 11:48, 18 May 2007 (BST)


The page says "Signatures should be used on all talk pages. In addition, at least Suggestions, Mobile Phone Mast and Revive Point pages require their use. On other pages signatures should not be used." I propose that the first sentence be expanded to include updates to places like the MIC and BIC, and also news updates on suburb pages and the like. Any thoughts? --Pedentic 14:56, 9 July 2007 (BST)

Sounds alright. Go ahead. --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 11:01, 10 July 2007 (BST)
