How to Change font size on sidebar with Lugada Theme (7 posts)

    Hi everyone. I am new to WordPress and would like to change the font size of my left navigation which is the 'main sidebar' on my Lugada Theme. Can someone explain to me how I can do this?? I went into the CSS style sheet and under the heading 'sidebars and widgets' this is what the code looks like:

    [no need to post CSS - it's all visible on your site]

    Can someone explain to me what I need to change on here to change the font size or if this is even the right place to change it?? My site is http://www.WeAreEcospaces.com. Thanks!

    Adding the following CSS will do it. Or find the .column-sidebar selector in your CSS code and add the font-size rule.

    .column-sidebar {
      font-size: 14px; // Adjust size to your liking
    }

    I went into the CSS style sheet and put exactly what you indicated in your most recent post and still can't get my left nav sidebar links to change font size. This is what I put:

    .column-sidebar,{
    font-size: 17px;
    }

    Are you using a child theme or a custom CSS plugin? You should not be editing the theme itself.

    In the dashboard I am going to 'Appearance" -> 'Editor' -> 'Stylesheet (style.css). That is where I found the .column-sidebar and added the font size rule, which didn't work.

    Keep in mind, that I am a noob at these type of things so all help is greatly appreciated.

    No - do not edit the theme's stylesheet. Install a custom CSS plugin and use that your your CSS changes.

    Yes good point if you're not using a child theme, and you update your theme, your changes will be overwritten. Also your CSS contains a comma that shouldn't be there. Just before the opening brace.
