  • The relevant CSS code depends on your site, so you’ll need to post a link to your site if you want help.

    You can also use Firebug to figure out CSS questions like this.

    i understand how to change the mainwrapper color.. but im am not sure where to look in the magazine basic to change the font size inthe title or the posts or the header

    If you are talking about the white text, you can change that here (line 571 in style.css):

    #leftcontent .hentry .entry {
        font-size: 14px;
        line-height: 18px;

    The color is inherited from this (line 31):

    body {
        color: #FFFFFF;

    So you can either add a color to the first CSS above or change it in the body — however if you do the latter, it will change it everywhere else in the site that inherits that CSS code.

    Re your second post, see the Codex on CSS and download Firebug as I already suggested. You’ll no doubt want to make more changes, so understanding some CSS will help you a lot!

    how do i add a logo in my header through css?

    You can’t usually do that with just CSS — but that question has been discussed many times on these forums — so do a search for it.

    my twitter widget is not going to my twitter page when i click on it? I have a wordpress page with magazine basic..
