New Article Style: Feedback to Layout and font
Open, Needs TriagePublic


The layout is very narrow. See comparison to Medium, a popular blogging platform.

I'm not sure if it's a bug or actually should look like this. Also the font is very small and thin. Medium is much easier to read!

See for example:

The new article style has been a compromise between me (wanting bigger font size) and Rex (wanting smaller font size) so in the end we settled with medium font size which we are using now.

Sebastian wanted it to look like a Ladybird book (namely 'The Big Pancake', which he likes), I wanted it to look like the Bible (still the most popular book in the world after the Harry Potter and the Fantastic Boasts series).

I didn't have much input on the font, although I do quite like it. Feel unable to make my mind up completely until the LP is changed.

Is that chicken going in the pancake or is that mr. hankey in the image "the pancake"?

I thought you said it was the rooster that sounded the alarm to the villagers that the pancake had gone rogue. I love it how you're making out that you're not familiar with the story now.

.... but pages on the site have never looked this sexy.
