    you mean within your admin section? i'm pretty sure any styling done for that is with your wp-admin.css file in your wp-admin folder.

    What specifically are you trying to change? The font-size of the Adminstration screen?

    To change the font size in your browser, the best way to do this since you are the only one looking at your Admin page, usually:

    MSIE: View, TEXT SIZE
    FireFox: View, TEXT SIZE or Cntrl plus + or -

    Sorry if i was too vague before.

    I'm looking to change the output.

    For example, in Edit User > Profile, I input "test test test"

    I would like to be able to format that "test test test" text's output when shown on the page...

    with breaks, and styles (bold, italics) ...

    regular HTML isn't working, and since the php itself is just one string, I can't alter the different aspects, and suggestions? ...

    Okay, let's start over. The Edit User > Profile isn't a place to but design code or styles. The results are generated through the use of template tags within the template files in your WordPress Theme.

    For example, if you are trying to style the name of the site, you look in the Theme folder of the Theme you are using and open the header.php file.

    Look for a tag that looks like this:

    <h1><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>

    These tags generate a link to your home page (url), and post the "name" of the site within an H1 tag. If you want to style the H1 tag, you open up the style.css file in the same folder and look for H1 and change that information's font size to whatever you want.

    Are we now on the right track?

    Right, I understand that, but what I'm trying to do is allow users the ability to edit their own information.

    There are some fields that I'd like to include that aren't supplied and so I was hoping I could just add them into the Description field.

    However breaks and styles aren't recognized within that area.

    Things such as:

    Picture
    Other Field
    Other Field

    However it doesn't show as such ...

    Would this require some deeper hacking into the code?

    Okay, so let me understand this. You want to change the Admin > Users and Authors page so your users can add their own pictures, and add style to their name and nickname and such on the site instead of having the site designed to look a consistent way all the way through.

    The problem with this, as I see it (and someone help me here) is that you want to add fields to the master table to store this information. That requires a lot more work than adding a couple of html tags in the Users and Authors page. It means rewriting a lot of the code, and recreating tags specifically to display that information. We're talking plugin or major revision of source code.

    Luckily for you, I know how to work Google:

    This should get you started.
