Changing font size (20 posts)

    Hi again - I posted a related issue earlier and despite the helpful answers could not fix my problem. In any event, this one should be easier to address (I think)

    Does anyone know how to reduce the size of the font in the theme? My pages and posts have really big letters as I would like to reduce their size

    Thanks
    Erico

    There's really no way to help with CSS without seeing your site.

    And which font where? Also, do you have custom CSS set up? That's necessary to make changes to CSS.

    sorry, not sure I know the answers to these questions. I just downloaded the theme and started using it. If you click in any of the bubbles that will show you the current page font size

    You cannot make changes to theme files - they will be erased when the theme is updated - so the way around that is to use a custom CSS plugin such as Custom CSS Manager. Install that first.

    Do you want the text smaller or the heading(s)? Or both.

    Both, if possible

    Do you have the plug installed and activated?

    Once that's done, add this to the new CSS section of the plugin - and change the size according to what you like.

    .entry-title, .entry-title a {
        font-size: 3.2rem;
    }
    
    .entry-content, .entry-summary {
        font-size: 1.8rem;
    }

    one last question, if I may. I am in the editor of the plug-in. in which part of it do I add this code?

    Under Appearance > Custom CSS Manager - there's a blank box - copy the code there.

    add this to the new CSS section of the plugin - and change the size according to what you like.

    EDIT- the numbers are the size of the font.

    yes, I have done that, but not quite sure how to change the size. As far as I can tell the letters still look the same. Is there a toggle or input somewhere that enables me to change from, say, font size 15 to 10?

    Those fonts are set in "rem" - doesn't look like you've changed anything - try changing the 3.2 to 1.5 and the 1.8 to .8 - then clear your browser cache.

    That works! I just need to play it with the sizes so I get to the right number.

    THANKS FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE!

    thanks so much for the help, may i ask ... re:

    http://j.mp/166fLrG

    ... what exactly might i cut and paste into my child-theme CSS so that I can alter and thusly overwrite the color, size and or hover attributes of the text "CONTACT, ABOUT, HOME" ... located in what I assume is the header (right side top).

    thank you so much, great theme!
