Change Font Size in body and Posted Comments

    I’ve tried to browse around the posts to see if I could figure this out on my own, but it has become increasingly frustrating and I’m feeling dumber by the moment.

    Whenever I make a post to our site, the font size is a bit too large, I’m thinking it’s set to 14 or more. Then, if someone were to leave their comment, their font size is even larger, maybe 16. I fotched around with style.css and didn’t get to the right code line or it’s not there, or I’m an idiot. I want the general font size for the content of our pages to be defaulted at 10px. Up to this point, I’ve had to go into each post and modify the html font tag to change it. Please advise. Thank you.

    I’m using the cnnesque theme and my blog is at http://www.IndieRetailer.com/home.php for reference.

    Best Regards,

    John

    I hope it’s enough money to pay someone to fix this mess I’ve created.

    238 errors :O:O:O
    B/W the font size is fine with me in firefox. If you are on I.E, make sure the default font size is set to “Medium” in your browser settings (View>Text Size>).

    The font size is fine now because I would constantly go in and change the html in each post to bring it down. By default, it’s too large.

    Seriously, I’d start by wading into that validation link given a few posts back. Clean things up a bit.

    Thanks anyway. That’s not the issue. How about staying on topic, please.

    hahahha. I love that. did you just come here asking foir help cuz I sure missed it???

    How bout this, Seriously, I’d start by wading into that validation link given a few posts back. Clean things up a bit.

    Even if thats NOT the source of your problem, it will HELP anyone trying to HELP you to figure it out.

    That or you might want to S-E-A-R-C-H, there have been plenty of similar threads.

    Have a nice day 🙂

    It must be REALLLLY tough to help people day in and day out here, especially with the odd combination of arrogance and helplessness people exhibit. Thank God i’m not Podz.

    I owe macmanx a H U G E apology.

    Yes, I’m asking for help…. with the font issue. Nothing else. I’ll worry about the other stuff later. One issue at a time. Except, it seems everyone wants to address anything besides what’s being asked, and in a rather arrogant way at that.

    I’m not denying the other mess, but I also know that it’s unrelated to what I’m asking.

    So, I’ll ask again. Please.

    My last reply to this thread, since Im admittedly a thread killer : NO-ONE responded to your question arrogantly, they looked at the first thing you should have checked — and your surprise indicates that you didnt. Nuff said.

    None of this looks arrogant to you? Well, it sure comes across that way on this end. I’ve already admitted to trying to “S-E-A-R-C-H” on the topic and haven’t found anything specific to be helpful. I didn’t come here to be a di**, nor did I come here to be treated like one. It sure is easy to spout off in a thread. Give me a F’ing break! I doubt you’d react the same way in person.

    If you’re going to be helpful, then please do so. Otherwise, why start a pissing contest?

    I’d (nonarrogantly) suggest that you try fixing the validation errors on your site. It’s quite likely that something in that mess is screwing your font size up.

    Thank you, Haeccieity. I appreciate the non-degrading approach. O.k., it appears that (and unfortunately, I don’t know the difference) all of the errors are HTML conflicts with XHTML. In which case I wouldn’t know where to begin.

    So, here’s yet another approach. I have wanted to clear up those issues, I just didn’t think it would be a priority seeing as how the site functions otherwise. However, if the concensus thinks that those HTML/XHTML issues should be first. I would be willing to pay a modest amount (I’d be willing to pay a lot if I had it) to anyone who would be willing to take on this project if I were to allow access to my FTP and resolve all issues.

    Anyone care to bid?

    Oh, there is NO doubt I replied arrogantly. Tit for tat, as we say — after all, I WAS replying to you.

    As for the others, they werent arrogant, you JUST took it that way, maybe because they didnt handwalk you through a solution, maybe because they made emoticons (OMG!!) at your validation errors.

    Helpful, apparantly, for you suggests that someone should wade through what basically amounts to a clusterfuck of problems to GIVE you a solution — guess what, thats something you can do. Right?

    Heres a hint, the answer is IN the search results, and since I was able to find it, I’ll assume you can as well.

    What the hell. Ya know, Whooami? On another day, I might continue this, and escalate it, and maybe even invite you to put up your dukes.

    Today, I’ll take the high road and assume that because of the sometimes difficulty in interpreting intent of the written word, I’ll assume everyone here had my best interest in mind, apologize, and thank you all.

    However, perhaps I am a bit spoiled in dealing with other forums where people are a bit more detailed (even to the point of hand-holding through an issue). Perhaps I mistakenly anticipated the same sense of community here.

    O.k., so I was wrong. Again, I didn’t come to ruffle feathers, make enemies, etc… I’m not interested in expending the energy to banter venom back and forth. I’m just looking for some help. Not even necessarily a ‘hand-out’, I’m willing to pay if that’s what it takes. I just want my problems resolved. Some I can resolve on my own. When I can’t, I’m not too proud to ask for help. I just don’t appreciate being laughed at or ridiculed (my perception perhaps, but none-the-less…).
