    basic iphone page fonts too small

    revdave Community Member

      Hi all,


      well i tried to create a simple test page with a large font - but it still shows up small in IOS7 iphone 5...


      Q: how do I get the page to show correctly with large font for ios?


      Also I'm sure there are many other tips for the basics with phones and tablets - (I heard about responsive design / mobile first) - for now just a few basics needed to get started....


      Is there anything about making the page fit the screen size that would automatically make it larger?


      UPDATE - I see that the font size is larger with the css.... so it seems that the iphone is just showing mostly a large blank page that I have to zoom in on ---- HOW DO I get it to auto fit the iphone screen size (like auto zoom in based on screen size)?


      UPDATE 2 - AHA - I found <meta name="viewport" content="width=320" /> - this seems to help a lot - any other info would be appreciated!





      Thanks - dave
