I have tried it on my Joomla 3x site. Works perfectly! Easy setup and installation, simple to administrate.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your comment!
Although the plugin is compatible with Joomla! v3, we have not yet tested to 100%.

The new compatible J!3 version, will be released later this year.

Excellent plugin

This plugin is very easy to use and to install. It is excellent if you want to improve the accessibility of your website. It works great and the developer is very nice and helpful. I had a display problem caused by my template and together we managed to find a solution promptly.

Great Plugin

Don't normally read reviews, but this extension works on my Joomla sites unlike some of the other extensions out there. The choice of styles is a positive, as is the disability/impairment option.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your comment!
We hear all your suggestions and issues.

Unfortunately, works only on the regular root articles and categories, and does not extend to articles on plug-ins such as DJ-catalog.

Owner's reply: Incomplete is not the adjective you would use: "Problem with DJ-catalog" for example.
I think if you have a problem with the plugin, you should comment on the author's website or by email.

Thanks for your comment!

Great Solution

Very nice plugin here. Easy to configure, intuitive. All I really did was turn it on and type the information cues in my language.

It's visible and obvious to the visitor they they can make the text bigger.

Very Nice Work! Thank You, karmany.


Owner's reply: Thank you very much to you, for your comment.

Excellent plugin

I love this plugin, my only problem is it shows in modules that display articles, or custom html and when I put in {hidefa} it disables the plugin but I can see the text hidefa on the module. Once I have that figured out it will be perfect.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your comment!

The content plugins can also run in custom HTML modules. This is very important. For example, the "Article PXFont Size" plugin, can show in a module.

You can disable the content plugin in a custom HTML module. You must do the following:

Extensions -> Module manager -> (Custom HTML Module) -> Basic Options -> Prepare Content -> No

If this does not fix your problem, on our website or email, we'll help in any way we can.

Cool plugin!

Exactly what I looking for! Easy, elegant, customizable yet powerful.

Is there any way to change default article font size without clicking its bottom? I wish there's more documentation and example/demo in addition to author's website.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your comment!

The new version will bring more options.
1.- "without clicking its bottom". -I do not understand what you mean.
2.-I think that "Article PXFont Size" is a simple to use plugin. English is not my native language. More documentation means time. I prefer to spend time on improving the plugin.

Un saludo.

excellent and simple

very nice module.

My only "wish" would be the option to be able to change from px to em (or other values)- or have variations to download that were preformatted as such.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your comment!

I will study your proposal.
It may be available on the next release but I can confirm to you. If not, your suggestion will be available in two new releases.
