I suggest you ...

Font Sizes

Allow users to set Font Sizes for feed entries. (candidate styles: li.item, li.simple-item, or a.main-link)

    I've been using netvibes on and off since 2006 and one of the first suggestions at the time was to increase the font size. Lo and behold in the year 2014 they still haven't added this feature.

    Agreed. I can't use this until this can change. Maybe 10 years ago.

    Add me to the list of users who switched from iGoogle but are now ready to switch to something else because the font size is ridiculously small

  • Giovanni commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Oh yeah!
    It is very important to setup font sizes when feeds are updated with 24 hours delay!!
    Please folks vote " Delay" idea.

    Not sure why this takes so much time. Basically you only have to replace the link-entry-style by a user setting if present. If not, use the default one. Should be done in hours :)

    Font size and font color should be adjustable. iGoogle allow me to use a blue text color which is better for long time reading that the black text color

    Please don't ignore users requests. Like google did....

    Just joined netvibes after google shot himself in the foot once again. Netvibes is great, but almost only 1 week of use, the font size issue its very clear. Please allow the option for font size increase on the feed options.
    That would make netvibes service even better. Thanks

    Still looking for a replacement for IGoogle. I've set up homepages in IgHome, Netvibes, and Protopage. Last night Netvibes was in the lead, but today I discovered how to increase the font size and change background in IgHome which is now the lead candidate. Netvibes, let me chose my font size, and you'd be my choice, but without that choice, I choose IgHome.

    holy mackerel - not having the option to change font size is a royal pain. I can hardly read the dashboard.

  • Michael Frost Jensen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Looking for iGoogle alternatives Netvibes seems a good candidate. However not being able to set font-size is a dealbreaker. This should be a widget option.

  • Bit Apull commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Netvibes is a good service, but i dont get how they dont see that important issue.
    Usability is one of the most important things on websites.

    You should be able to set Font Type, Font Size and Font Color for users on larger screens.

    It is not a perfect solution, but you can use a Chrome Plugin called Stylish to change the fonts and other page characteristics. Here are some styles that I have Stylish apply to NetVibes:

    .rss-more-space .rssItemList li, .rss-more-space .nv-feedList li,
    .nv-liveView .item { padding-top: 5px; line-height: 1.5em; font-size: 1.5em; font-family: arial, sans-serif; border-bottom: thin solid #cccccc;}

    #pageTitle {display: none;}
    h2.title {font-size: 1.5em !important;}
    div.moduleHeader {height: 2.5em;}

    please do try to be reactive on this topic, which is essential for a good user experience.

    Your is igoogle replacement is better than I could have hoped for but it is not useable.
    On a 24" 1920x1200 monitor the text displays at about 7pt.

    Afraid I'll be using igHome - not as clean but at least it's readable .

    From searching around, this is a common complaint about Netvibes, for years now. I'm very surprised this hasn't been addressed already.
