[Resolved] font size

  • fifthwind


    Hi everyone,

    please forgive me if I don’t know proper etiquette and such for asking questions on a forum. It’s been a long time since I’ve had to ask something, usually I can figure things out for myself.

    My question is regarding the middle-earth theme which I purchased (and is great btw)

    I’m looking to increase the standard font size a little bit for the main body content. (what you see on my site for now, I’ve increased manually with each post)

    I can’t find where in the CSS file to make the change. And how should the code look? I’m trying to make the standard font for page and blog post about 14px. I think the template is set up much smaller (you can see the difference between my home page and my blog page.

    Do I need to post the CSS file? or is a link to my site sufficient for someone to help? http://thekreggorian.com

    Any help is much appreciated. Oh, and don’t be too critical of the site, it’s still under construction. lol

    Thanks in advance!

    In general, commercial themes are not supported here so you’ll really need to ask on the vendor’s site. But also in general, CSS changes should be made in a child theme or a custom CSS option or plug-in — so that changes are not overwritten when the theme is updated. Then, the best way to find the code you need to change is by using Firebug — which in this case, shows that the text is set in this CSS code:

    articles .post-body {
        font-size: 13px;
        line-height: 18px;
        margin-left: 0;
        overflow: hidden;
        padding: 0 30px 20px;

    It happens to be in the index.css file — which is not very standard WP — so that theme may be set up differently. But no matter, what you would typically do is use those selectors in the new CSS file and do this:

    articles .post-body {
        font-size: 14px;

    You only need to put what you are changing and it should override the other CSS code…



    That did the trick. Thanks.

    I’ll remember about firebug next time. At least I don’t feel too bad for not finding it since it was buried in an unusual file that I wasn’t even looking for. 🙂
