    help!

    i've been messing around with my style.css. i know it's better to do by setting up a child, but my attempt failed. i'll try again soon.

    in the meantime, i somehow modified something that makes my sidebar display as too big. all the words are jumbled.

    here's the site...http://www.urbanherbschool.ca

    pls help!

    thanks.

    Download a new copy of your theme to your local computer. Then using FTP, replace the style.css file in your theme's folder.

    thanks. i thought about that, but was hoping for an option that wouldn't undo my other tweaks.

    could this have happened from changing the entry-title?

    the worst seems to be coming from:

    body,
    input,
    textarea {
    	color: #800080;
    	font-size: 30px;
    	line-height: 18px;
    }

    was originally:

    body,
    input,
    textarea {
    	color: #666;
    	font-size: 12px;
    	line-height: 18px;
    }

    for whatever reason you changed that, you need to find a different approach to achieve what you tried.

    thank you SO much, alchymyth!

    that's what i changed to increase the tagline in the banner.

    do you know where i would change that? (so that it doesn't mess up anything else?

    thanks.

    either find the exsisting style for #site-description and add the font-size to it; or add this to style.css:

    #site-description { font-size: 30px; }

    hint:
    most modern browsers have some sort of 'inspect element' function - probably on right-click on an element in the browser;

    these are really helpful in identifying where in the stylesheets the element gets formatted.

    I personaly use Firefox which has this right-click 'inspect element', and I also use the web developer add-on of Firefox.
