changing font type/size in Arclite theme

  • Can someone guide me how to change font size and type in the stylesheet in Arclite theme. Do you know which part of the code belongs to post?
    I am looking at the code and it has so many different options; for example:
    body{
    font-family: “Lucida Grande”, “Lucida Sans Unicode”, Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, Sans, FreeSans, Jamrul, Garuda, Kalimati;
    font-size: 13px;
    font-style: normal;
    color: #000;
    background: #261c13;
    min-height:100%;
    height:auto !important; /* ie6 ignores it */
    height:100%; /* fix */
    position: relative;
    }

    Thanks.

  • so can you just provide a link of your site and what you want to change the font? That would give a better idea on what element you need to change.

    The web site is:
    The Indians Abroad.com

    I want to change the text appearance (font/size) for the posts and pages – not for the titles, but the contents.
    Thanks in advance.

    hey sorry for the delayed response. So, what you need to do is go to here in your stylesheet (in wordpress editor to appearance, edit, then stylesheet.css

    search for these:

    p {
    margin: .6em 0 .3em;
    line-height: 125%;
    }
    change it to

    p {
    margin: .6em 0 .3em;
    line-height: 125%;
    font-size: 50px; (<– or whatever)
    }

    and you’ll be good to go. The “p” stands for paragraph, which is what the content text is in all of your posts / pages. You can also specify a number of elements to it. I strongly suggest you go here – http://www.w3schools.com/ and get a little more familiar with css.

    Thanks for the response.
    For some reason, it does not work. I tried 16px to 30px using different values; the post font size stays the same. There is probably some other area of css I need to look at as well. Any ideas?

    So, maybe I was looking at the wrong site… Is this the site you wanted to edit the text size? http://www.theindiansabroad.com/

    Can you just let me know specifically with an example of what you want changed? I can then be sure I’m telling you the correct info.
