Possible bug: H1 fonts different in every browser

  • Hi,

    Strange thing. H1 tags are really f!@ked up. In every browser the size is different.

    In IE: Ridiculous large font

    in FF: Somewhat normal size

    in Opera: Smaller than FF

    See this image (watch the “Latest Discussions” text):

    How and can we fix this problem? All other fonts are displayed ok, only the <h1> is effected!

    Do you have an h1 listing in your css?

    I’m telling teacher, you did a swear.

    I don’t think a font size was specified for h1 in the css that comes with the basic theme. Try adding that in and see if it helps with the amount of swearing that emanates from your css.

    Hahaha was too late to change it into: messed up

    On topic:

    This happens with a clean bbPress install, so what and where in the CSS do I have to change it, so all browsers produce the same (correct) font size?



    Look through the css file, there’s existing code on adjusting the h2 size. Copy it and make it h1



    I did not see this problem until today when I looked at my site in IE7. The H1 was HUGE. I added this to the BBPRESS/bb-templates/style.css around line 37 (just after the blockquote definition):

    h1 {

    font-size: 2.0em;


    h2 {

    font-size: 1.5em;


    Now the headings are approximately the same size in IE and FF, and retain the styling of the rest of the stylesheet (for #header h1 and #front-page #main h2).

    Thx going to try that and also (if this works) use it in the bbportal css


    Tested it in IE7, Opera 9 and FF 2.0 and this fixes it for all browsers!

    This will be fixed in the next release (.80).
