Beginning yesterday , June 18, the font size on my iPad Pro suddenly changed to very large, only on this site. Very frustrating
How do i adjust and reduce font, or is this a problem at the Daily Kos site ?
Please advise

    Ditto. Front page articles only: everything else appears in the usual font size. I’ve tried powering off and restarting my iPad but that has had no effect.

    Yes, me too. It’s hard to read the articles with the font so large.

    Apologies all around.
    We made a change to permit iOS browsers to make use of so-called "dynamic type" capacity, which allows users to choose their own font size. It's an important accessibility feature we want to make available. Unfortunately, we discovered that some versions of iOS behave significantly differently, and clearly not everyone uses the same one. So, for now, we are about to roll back that change until we can get all the bumps smoothed out for all versions.
    Thanks very much for reporting the problem, and thanks for your patience as we address this issue in the short and long term.

    FWIW my iPad is about 4 years old and iOS 10.3.3 seems to be the most recent version it can support.
