    Hi I'd like to make my site title and description larger as well as center it. How do I do this? Also is there a way to bring the navigation menu closer to the top?

    Here is my website.

    Thanks in advance.

    perryhua,

    Unless your theme provides the options from its own settings area, you would edit the style.css file for the text styling inquiries. You can achieve that by using the editor within the Appearance Tab, or from the file itself.

    For the navigation menu, you would need to edit the template for that area. It looks like there is some spacing above the search box that can be reduced, otherwise remove the search in general. That's your preference.

    Hope that helps. Good luck.

    Thanks for replying! I understand that I will have to edit the style sheet and template files but I don't know which lines of code to change.

    I'm sorry, but that is not good advice @sbaymedia-com. You should not edit the theme's original files without a Child Theme setup, otherwise when the theme updates, those modifications will be erased.

    Thanks for replying! I understand that I will have to edit the style sheet and template files but I don't know which lines of code to change.

    Do you have a section in the dashboard named, "Custom CSS", "Edit CSS" or "Custom CSS Manager"?

    Yes I have a child theme setup already and there is a "Edit CSS" section.

    I just want to know what lines of code I should add.

    FireFox + FireBug Extension will help out big time:

    TITLE FONT SIZE:

    style.css - line 431. Change font-size

    DESCRIPTION FONT SIZE:

    style.css - line 443 Change font size

    CENTERING:

    style.css - line 425 Change alignment

    @perryhua,
    You don't have a Child Theme setup, or at least it's not activated. Can you activate it?
