Sidebar font size in Brunelleschi (6 posts)

    Does anyone know how to change the font size of the sidebar elements in Brunelleschi? I've been through the style.css and can't find the font size code. (Just wanted to mention that I changed the size of the text in my test posts by using HTML in the individual posts.)

    Brunelleschi has three different font sets you can choose from, and I have Modern. While changing to one of the other two font sets will change the font itself, it doesn't look like it changes the size.

    Thanks again!

    for the post titles -- Line 1666 in style.css:

    .widget-area li li {
        font-size: 13px;
    }

    for the all caps h3 tags - line 1760:

    #sidebar h3:first-child {
        margin-top: 0;
    }

    On the second example, I assume you mean change h3 to something larger like h2. I tried that and it didn't work. I changed the h3 to other values between h1 and h6 with no change to the font size at all.

    ETA: I forgot to mention the first code worked just fine -- I changed from 13 px to 16 px and it worked like a charm. Thanks!

    No, that CSS code determines how those h3 tags are styled -- so you would need to add:

    font-size: ??px;

    to that CSS block of code:

    #sidebar h3:first-child {
        margin-top: 0;
        font-size: ??px;
    }

    Or you could conceivably change the h tag in the HTML code, but that's a lot harder...would likely mean editing a php file or function. No need anyway, just put the font-size you want in that code -- obviously put in the numbers for the ??!

    Whoops - thanks for correcting me! That worked just fine, I appreciate the help.

    Guess I should have mentioned I'm not just a newbie, I'm a Super Newbie.

    Ha Ha! Glad it worked and you obviously won't be a newbie for long -- you sorted this out no sweat!
