    WOW - Come on today to use PhPMyAdmin and now all the fonts on it are extra large. I have to set IE to smallest font size to make it useable! Any idea what has happened?

    MySQL - 4.0.25-standard
    phpMyAdmin - 2.8.0.2

    Also it says "MySQL client version: 4.1.10" on the right hand side, yet on the lef tit says 4.0.25 standard (not brave enough to upgrade yet, or so I thought!)

    It's not just you - the fonts are ridiculously large for everyone.

    It looks like it's a mistake in the default font size in the new stylesheet. The Dark Blue / Orange sheet is not affected (although it looks awful too).

    It looks like they removed the old styles for the new version. Hopefully they'll update that soon.

    I've just checked the stylesheet and, oddly, there's no font size set for anything.

    To make this better:

    0. Make a backup first
    Code:
    cp /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/css/phpmyadmin.css.php /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/css/phpmyadmin.css.php.old
    1. Open /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/css/phpmyadmin.css.php

    2. Add

    Code:
    body {
      font-size: 0.8em;
    }
    as indicated:

    Code:
    <?php
    /* $Id: phpmyadmin.css.php,v 2.83 2006/01/14 20:20:13 cybot_tm Exp $ */
    // vim: expandtab sw=4 ts=4 sts=4:
    
    chdir('..');
    define( 'PMA_MINIMUM_COMMON', TRUE );
    require_once('./libraries/common.lib.php');
    require_once('./libraries/sqlparser.lib.php');
    
    if ( $GLOBALS['text_dir'] === 'ltr' ) {
        $right = 'right';
        $left = 'left';
    } else {
        $right = 'left';
        $left = 'right';
    }
    
    // Send correct type:
    header('Content-Type: text/css; charset=ISO-8859-1');
    
    ?>
    !!!HERE!!!
    
    /* @deprecated */
    That, for me at least, sets the font size back to what it was before.

    Perhaps the nightly run of /scripts/upcp will overwrite, perhaps not. We'll see . . .

    It looks like they're using a mostly CSS-based layout now, which certainly wasn't true of previous versions (not sure when they "switched over").

    Yeah, there are some font-sizes mentioned in the default stylesheet, but just percentage values, no default.

    So I guess they're leaving it up to the browser defaults, which are fairly big for most people.

    You did edit the correct file and force-reload your browser afterwards?

    Try this. Almost same as webignition's instructions except look for the css.php files in /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/themes/yourthemename/css/

    Notice there may be a theme_left.css.php and a theme_right.css.php as well. Now you can insert the font em size statement in these as well. These will be overwritten on upgrade, but at least you know where to look. :)

    : edit :
    Oh, and normal theme is 'original', so you would be looking for /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/themes/original/css/ - HTH!

    I've noticed that the changes I made weren't overwritten by the nightly update.
