Support » Fixing WordPress » Fonts too small in the body of pages

  • I’m trying to correct some issues I see after a web company abandoned my website project in the middle of the development job.

    In the body of the pages, they made the fonts really small. I’m okay with the small fonts in the footer, but not the body.

    I’m adding code on each page to make the fonts larger, but it’s tedious and time consuming, and it would be so much less work if I could just change the font size where it’s being defined for all pages.

    I’m new to wordpress and don’t know where this is being done. I’m guessing it’s being done in the templates. Is that correct?

    I know some CSS and html, but I don’t know php. I can’t discern the code defining the fonts for the body within the templates.

    I’d be grateful if someone could tell me how to change the font style for the body of the pages.

  • Can you post a link to your site?

    The two paragraphs on the home page are controlled by two different css rules.

    One is here in style.css:

    #content p {
    font-size: 13px;
    padding-bottom: 20px;

    The font-size can be changed there but that does not control the second paragraph. That is being controlled by the reset.css file.

    I would be cautious changing that. You may want to make sure the second paragraph is within the content rule or add a new rule. I have not looked at other pages but that should get you started.

    Hi graphical,

    Can you tell me where I find the reset.css file?

    Will these two locations be controlling the default font size for the entire site?


    The reset.css file is in your theme folder. You don’t have a “default font size” for the whole site. That would require to check everything but you can use firebug if you use firefox or dev tools if you use chrome to inspect those other paragraphs.
