Small size of sixth heading
« on: February 17, 2011, 09:26:27 AM »
Hey folks,

I'm going through Cpatain Mako's content. I note many of the missions are labelled with heading 6 (Speak with Operative Grillo).

The result is tiny tiny text.

I'm guessing that's 'just the way it is'?

Wow, I had no idea that any of the heading levels actually got smaller than normal text. That's... ugly. :P

This can be changed by altering the site-wide CSS. The problem is that we need to determine what to change it to. If we just make it bigger, then the distinction between heading 6 and heading 5 gets lost.

Problems with heading sizes? Friends and loved ones at wit's end? Let me introduce you to a five-step program that I discovered and which turned my life around:

1) Determine the smallest desired size of heading text
2) Set the h6 value to that size
3) Find the smallest existing heading (h1, h2, etc.) that's already a good size
4) Scale down the remaining heading sizes linearly going towards h6
5) Kick back in a La-Z-Boy, crack open a cold one, and enjoy life to the fullest

I didn't know we were using heading 6 for anything.  Is that a mistake, or do we need to edit the CSS?

Well in the case of mission text it's being caused by a contact that has the following:
1. Multiple story arcs that have different ranges
2. A mission within that arc that has sub-missions

This means it needs to use heading 6 to show up correctly in the TOC. However I would think changing Heading6 to look the same as Heading5 would be a possible solution that would preserve the TOC without looking silly.

Fixed: I scaled up h4, h5, and h6 so that h6 is 100%. I tried to keep the proportional intervals across h3-h6 the same as they were previously.

You'll need to clear/bypass your brower's cache to see changes (typically CTRL-F5 works).

Hey all,

Excellent outcomes, as always    :)

I agree Heading Six is rarely used; and when it is used I think it's always worth looking at the structure and seeing if there's an underlying issue.

FYI: In the case of Captain Mako I will likely merge the "Story Arc" and "Level" Headings when I get to the end of my content audit, thus making the deepest level 5.

It's not fixed for the "Modern" style sheet.

Speaking of style sheets, anyone know the arcane css coding that would put an extra space between sections? I hate how the sections have the same spacing as paragraphs do. It just doesn't look right and makes 'seeing' sections as sections difficult.
