    I will admit that I was tinkering with font size in my theme's style.css when it happened, but since then I have emptied my browser's cache, checked my blog in other browsers and even on other computers and even completely changed my theme, deleted the files for that theme and then did a fresh install of the theme, and the font is still HUGE! What am I not seeing?? Someone please assist! Thank you.

    Huge on which browser & browser version?
    Can you post a screenshot of the issue?

    The newest version of Chrome (Version 24.0.1312.56 m)

    The header is just a header image. It has nothing to do with the font on my page. It is just a .png file. It's supposed to be that size.

    No. It's the font in the posts. :(

    Here is what it should look like:

    If you look at them side by side, you can see the font on my page is really much larger.

    I don't even know how to go about fixing those things. Why wouldn't it have fixed itself by deleting the theme and uploading a fresh installation of it? It was working fine earlier today.

    Did you clear your browser's cache after reinstalling the theme?

    Yes. I've cleared the browser's cache, I've looked at it in other browsers, and I've even looked at it on other computers. And I've rebooted this computer. I don't get it.

    I started to deactivate my plugins thinking that maybe something was messing the template up, but now that I've reactivated the JetPack plugin, it won't let me connect to my WordPress.com account (you have to do this to get JetPack to work in a self-hosted WordPress installation). It's like my whole WordPress installation is rebelling against me! Yikes!

    Well, I reinstalled WordPress and I'm still stuck. Anyone want to take a stab at this?

    So have you deactivated all plugins, reset the plugins folder and switched to a default WP theme. Then see if the same problem is there.

    I can access my WordPress admin, so I don't see the need to reset the plugins folder. I have deactivated all of the plugins and set my theme to Twenty-Twelve. It seems to be showing up fine, but it was showing up fine before. It just seemed to be the Melville theme that I've been using for months with not trouble that was showing up with a huge font.

    Ugh. Now photos are showing up twice in Twenty-Twelve.

    I'd suggest sorting out the errors -- see the validator results above and

    Well, that's what I'm trying to do now. I've never done this before so it is somewhat daunting to me. When I switched to Twenty-Twelve I got even more errors. I'm back with my original theme. I managed to get rid of one error by disabling my SEO plugin. The other ones are related to some feature that doesn't allow my posts to be grabbed by Pinterest. I have no idea where this is, though. I keep checking the theme files and I don't see anything related to Pinterest. :(

    Well, it seems that it is not an issue with my theme as I have completely uninstalled it once again. I have uninstalled all of my themes, reinstalled my WordPress installation and am using TwentyTwelve theme. I am now getting more errors than I was with the original theme. Including the Pinterest script. I want to run away screaming now. :(

    No, actually the major problems are not there now. I know it's confusing with the validator - but not all errors are a problem - those still there are not a problem. Earlier the body and head tags were messed up. As I recall it looked like it was the pinterest javascript code that was in that area of the header.php file.

    There were five errors previously. Now there are ten. Let me reinstall the theme I was using and show you. And, I thank you for sticking with me on this. :)

    Well, now the theme looks like it's supposed to (font and all) and there is only one error. I don't know what to think.

    That's not a big problem error :). But I don't see the menu at all? Clear your browser cache?

    The menu is supposed to be at the bottom of the template and it is. I just placed it at the top of the template because it made more sense for me to have the menu where it was easily seen and navigable. It seems a silly place to put the menu down at the bottom. It might have caused some errors, but I haven't had any problems with it in the past. And I still don't know what happened to make my fonts go crazy.

    Okay, cool, then it looks like you sorted it - good? Make sure that you are not messing up code in the header.php if you are moving it back to the top. Keep a extra clean copy of the header.php file every time you make any changes to it.

    Yeah, that's what I'm doing. Thank you so much for sticking with me through this. I am going to make sure I do everything *very* carefully and back things up beforehand. :) Thanks again!

    Ha ha ha - you're welcome -- and look how much you learned :). (As I mentioned in an earlier thread - lovely site - content and design both.)
