The font for the 7sage forum looks different or is just my computer?

    Hi @kkole444, @yunonsie, @UCLAplease,@"Burden.of.Floof" @"Blake Morris" @CEOofgettinga170, @"Law and Yoda"

    Sorry about that. The font on the site should look like the example in the screenshot below:

    However, if it does not look like that on your end, please try clearing your browser's cache with these steps: https://7sage.com/clear-cache/

    Let me know if you are still having trouble.

    Goodbye Futura PT, hello whatever the fuck this unfortunate font is. 😔

    Cleared chache... that was a dicey, serif-filled moment that is gladly over. In case anyone was ever considering a new font for the sight, I believe we have figured out that will not be well received! lol

    aaah relief. Thank you @Juliet--

    This reminds me of an email I received one day at work that went like

    "Design Team,

    Thank you for implementing a fun new idea to freshen things up.

    It has been deemed a total failure and is to be removed immediately.

    Thank You,

    Boss Man"

    Definitely, @kkole444 ! It's sharper at the edges. I can get used it, though.

    ugh it hurts my eyes (literally not subjectively), can't use the site like this :disappointed:
    i'm going to make a possible mistaken causal flaw and say that browsing through the discussion forum just gave me a headache and nausea. there's too much contrast for some of us with 'eye condition issues'. I had to 90% my screen (just had to do the same on lawhub - so what is UP with this change!)

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! It's always great to hear what you think about changes so we have a better idea of what's working or not working for everyone.

    We are definitely open to changing the font back, or to some other font.

    I want to make sure we are all looking at the same font though, because it looks like we ran into issues delivering the new one. When we put in the new font we didn't realize how many browsers would aggressively cache our old styles and show the incorrect (emergency fallback) fonts. These fonts are quite bold, and at least to my taste, unappealing. Sorry! If you find the fonts too bold your browser most likely is showing the wrong fonts. Please try clearing your browser cache:

    Here is what the new font (left) should look like compared to the old (right) font:

    @"Alan Cheuk" I also noticed that one and liked that one! I think the one people are referring to here is this really bolded font that I see only under Forum. The cache clearing worked yesterday, but it's back today.

    @yunonsie Thank you for letting me know! We just rolled out some changes to try to reduce the chances of getting the really bolded font. Couldn't consistently reproduce the issue on our end, so it was a bit of a shot in the dark, I hope we didn't make it worse!

    Is it still weird on your end? Does doing https://7sage.com/clear-cache/ again help?

  • kkole444kkole444 Legacy Member

    @"Alan Cheuk" the changes (you, 7Sage)made changed the way the discussion forum looks. It is not so BOLD anymore. I did not have to clear the cache to see the new changes either.
