[resolved] Mantra: Changing font size in text widget (3 posts)

    I've been building a site locally, so unfortunately I can't link to it for you. Hopefully my question is general enough. Definitely no pro at CSS but not totally uninitiated.

    I'm using Mantra 1.9.9.2. I have a text widget in the sidebar. The text is pretty small and I'd like to make it bigger... but I can't figure out where these settings are held.

    On another note, I know how to change the site title font in style.css... but I swear I changed it at one point using something in "Appearance" and now I can't find it for the life of me (unless I was dreaming). For the record, I have NOT changed site-title in style.css, I just meant that I don't need instruction on that.

    The best way to sort out these kinds of issues is by using a browser tool such as Firebug -- it shows you exactly what CSS code is affecting an element on the page and helps you see what CSS selectors you need to use to modify or add styles for a particular element.

    It's also highly recommended that you use a custom CSS option if your theme has it, or a plug-in or a Child Theme for making changes to the theme.

    Thanks! As only an occasional builder of websites, I often need a refresher when doing things. Firebug is great, and I found the CSS I was looking for and successfully modified it with a Child Theme. Looks just as I'd hoped now.

    In case anyone else is digging through their CSS unsuccessfully, I modified .widget-area.
