Just using my new iPad Pro 12.9” for the first time and am struck by the MacRumors homepage being so zoomed in and massive font size. Haven’t come across this on other websites, and changing from Fluid to Fluid HD or Fixed theme does not work.

The forums look fine.

Is this is a bug on the new larger iPad or was it like this on the previous gen?

As someone who visits the site multiple times daily this will probably annoy me

Would you care to post a screen shot or something? That could be any number of things; it seems less likely it's the particular device model.

Am I the only one having this issue? Not sure how to post a screenshot on here...

Driving me mad!

It’s very zoomed in on my 12.9. The font size is large and the amount of viewable content at a time is quite low. I’d expect to be able to read much more of the first article in landscape than 4 lines. Compared to pretty much every other site on the net, it’s massively blown up.

The MacRumors logo should, in my view, be the same size on the main site as it is on the forums. It’s practically double the size on the main site as it stands. And the font size is pretty much double what you find on the forums, and most other websites as well.

I wish Safari on iOS supported CMD and +/- to zoom in and out as it does on Mac. As I would zoom out 4 or 5 times if I could on the main site.

It’s bugging the heck out of me!
