    I feel the font sizes are too small overall. Is there a simple code to enlarge all fonts to, say, 1.25 times their existing size?

    By the way, most themes these days have a “custom css” section in their theme options, it would be great if you consider this for the next update. Or is that available in the paid version?

    Is there more control over fonts and font sizes in the paid version?

  • I am not sure if you can enlarge all fonts at once to 1.25 times their existing size but what you can do is install the Custom CSS and add this:

    .entry-content {
    font-size: 14px; // it will enlarge the content
    }
    
    .entry-title {
    font-size: 28px; // it will enlarge the titles
    }

    You could do:

    body {
    font-size: 125%;
    }

    or

    #content-wrapper {
    font-size: 125%;
    }

    For headings, this is done from each one individually:

    h1, h2, h3, etc.

    Then for anything else, you can add custom sizing such as kaniamea mentioned.

    For the other part of your post, it’s best not to code in a custom css directly into a theme. It’s better to use a plugin, or a child theme (if you plan to make other types of modifications, and which this theme does have a child theme you can install). But if it’s just css, then a CSS editor plugin is fine.

    Thanks! I have installed the child theme now – however I’ve just spent the last two days searching for the right theme and I notice most new themes have a “custom css” box in the Theme Options section.

    A lot of non-technical people are scared of child themes (I was for ages) – they sound too complicated. I’m used to them now, but it still seems unnecessarily fiddly to install a child theme or plugin to make two or three changes to the css.

    The other method which is ideally great for editing and doing custom css is to use a CSS editor because you can use it for any other themes you switch to from time to time. It pretty much works in a similar way where you just enter in some css, no child theme needed. IF you just need some minor css editing, then a css editor plugin is best suited then and not the child theme (which is more suited for actual theme file modifications. I know many people have jetpack installed, which has a decent css editor feature to it.

    Jetpack, ugh! I was a big fan for a while, until someone did some simple testing for me, and demonstrated how much it was slowing my site down – even though I had 90% of the options disabled! Jetpack isn’t really one plugin, it’s a suite of plugins bundled together. It has an annoying habit of auto-activating features, too.

    However I must say, I didn’t know there were standalone CSS plugins so I’ll certainly think about using those in future.

    And Encounter is a fantastic theme, BTW. As I say, I’ve spent two days ploughing through theme after theme until I found it. Still playing around with it and very impressed indeed.

    Definitely there are options to css editing with different plugins. The trick is to try out a few to see what works best for your needs.

    I made a note to write an article on my site about the different options one has when they need to do various levels of customization of a theme.

    Thanks for the comment about Encounters too 🙂
