Support » Fixing WordPress » Blog Entries' Fonts Not Sized Correctly

  • Not sure what has happened, but Paw Prints, my blog, has undergone an issue involving fonts. It was fine when I first imported my blog from Blogger to WP over a year ago, but in the last couple months, I’ve noticed the few entries that I have written now have *really* tiny font sizing, when I did nothing to change the fonts.

    Here is the link:

    The only change at all has been I installed the plug-in, Jetpack, as a recommendation from someone on the forum who helped me with a background color change issue. That was done last weekend.

    Other than that, no other changes.

    This font issue appears to be consistent on Firefox, Chrome, and IE.

    I hope someone can help me with this.

    Hello Spacedog2k5,

    There’s some illustrative HTML that may explain more to you than me what’s going on [screenshot]. I don’t know how multiple font sizes are being set in the HTML like that; other than an assumption that a plugin could be participating, in which case you could deactivate all plugins to explore this.

    What theme are you using? The content section is inside a bunch of outdated HTML setting very small font size:

    <font style="font-size: 10px;">
    <font style="font-size: 9.25px;">
    <font style="font-size: 9px;">
    <div id="content">

    You also have an awful lot of mark-up errors so that makes it hard to sort out what the problem is:


    EDIT – okay, beaten out by a minute :(.

    WPyogi – the theme I am using is TAKTEEK01. It’s early in the morning (reading this before I leave for work), so I am not 100% sure if I amreading your reply in the context intended. Is this something that can be corrected by me, or should i throw in the towel, starting all over with a simpler theme? *confused*

    Andrew –

    All plugins have been deactivated. Does this make it easier now to see where the problem(s) lay?

    It does narrow down the issue.
    Can you switch to a default theme like Twenty Eleven to see whether the problem persists? This is to check if the fonts are being set in a post or in the theme files themselves.

    I did try switching themes, and yes, the fonts looked normal again. :S Do you want me to leave it on Twenty Eleven for you to look at it?

    Yes, I would use a different theme. That one is outdated:

    Thank you both for the help. I have since found a more current theme. However, I am presented with one of my original problems when I brought my blog from Blogger to WP: I don’t know how to make my logo (designed by my fiance) fit at the top.

    I’ve left it as I have it now, and as you can see, it looks not unlike it is trying to peek up from behind the blog. Is there any way to move the template down enough to allow for the logo to fit above it?

    If there is no possible help/solution for what I am asking, could either of you recommend a current dark theme that allow for what I am trying to do?
