    Which part of style.css do I need to find if I want to change the size of the font in posts? and pages?

    There seem to be a lot of different style rules and it’s hard to know which one to change. I basically just want to make all of the text a bit bigger in both posts and pages.

  • Didn’t any of the links in your other thread help?

    The blog in question, must be this right?


    If you be will I. =P I bet I’d win if it was a contest! lmao!

    Hmm. OK. er… thanks.
    I’ll just go back and start trawling through the code then, like I should have known to do in the first place…

    I really wasn’t trying to be rude about the “lazy” remark, but come on though, you didn’t post a URL to your blog that you’re asking questions about. And you apparently aren’t trying hard enough, to learn a little CSS on your end either..

    That’s the reason why I said about being “lazy” or whatever..and that’s why I didn’t post a possible solution for you.

    I know that theme is a pain in the arse.. I’ve dealt with it already enough times. I guess that’s partly why I’m not too eager to help with it..sorry, I shouldn’t be like that. Again, didn’t mean to sound rude as such..sorry for saying that.. =( [spanks self]

    Anyways, which parts specifically do you want to change the fonts for? I know you said for: “posts? and pages?” but, is it *only* for their content text, or is links included and such also?

    If I remember right.. most of the content text is adjusted by the following CSS code sections:

    body {
    font-size: 62.5%; /* Resets 1em to 10px */
    font-family: ‘Lucida Grande’, Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    background-color: #d5d6d7;
    color: #333;
    text-align: center;

    Possibly these as well:
    #content {
    font-size: 1.2em

    .widecolumn .entry p {
    font-size: 1.3em;

    I didn’t really mess with the Text fonts and such before, but.. if that don’t help.. others in here could then. 😉 =)

    His/her CSS File. =)

    Keep that up and you’ll get a reputation ;’)

    Lmao! Hahaha.. Yeah, after re-reading that does kinda make ya wonder..hahaha =P


    Spanks = Paddles, Not wacking it, and smacking it to porn LOL!

    It’s all good. Sorry about my sloppy first post. In the end, a quick dig around and I was able to find what I needed to change. You know how it is using a new piece of software, especially WP where there is just such a wealth of information it’s a bit overhwelming. I don’t mind so much having my leg pulled for being lazy.

    By the way, it seems that changing the em size in widecolumn entry has no effect unless you change the em size in content as well. I wanted everything bigger so I changed both and got what I needed.


    I’m glad to hear you found what needed changed. =) Yeah, that theme is and can be a bit confusing sigh.. =( If you need any more help, just drop a new thread in the support forums ok? =)
