Support » Fixing WordPress » Increase Size of Tagline in TwentyTen Theme

  • Resolved chaddahlberg


    I am looking to increase the font size of the tagline in the twentyten theme. My web site is located at: In the top right, my tagline is “Your Ultimate Auction Solution”. However, it’s very small and I don’t like the color. Can I increase the size of this font and change the color to blue? Any hints or tips are very appreciated!

  • Edit site-description in the css file in on the theme. Put something like the following:


    Though playing with the size to get it they way you want it is in order.

    Thank you for your help. This is exactly what I needed!

    I’m using WordPress 3.0.1. My web site is here.

    I’ve been trying to understand how to increase the size and change the color of my tagline for days. I’ve read this and other threads about it, but to no avail.

    I’ve set my font size all the way up to 60px. Still no change.

    Here’s the code from my style.css

    #site-info {
    float: left;
    font-size: 60px;
    font-weight: bold;
    width: 700px;

    Any help will be appreciated on:

    1) increasing font size of tagline
    2) changing it’s color (to black)


    Update from the post above.

    I just accidentally discovered that the change I made was to the footer text, not the tagline at the top of the page.

    When I changed font size to 60px, that footer blew up.

    OK, so I learned something.

    But I still cannot identify where to change the size of the tagline.

    This can’t be rocket science. What am I doing wrong?

    How do I clearly and unambiguously find font-size and color for tagline?

    Is it really in style.css or somewhere else? Header.css?

    And why isn’t it simply called “tagline”?

    #site-description { ... }

    OK, I found the section ….

    #site-description {
    clear: right;
    float: right;
    font-style: italic;
    margin: 14px 0 18px 0;
    width: 220px;

    but what do I change?


    I see no reference to “font” there.

    if there is no reference to what you want to change, you can add it at any time; just add as many formats to the style as you need.


    font color

    Thanks, but that really doesn’t help me much.

    Not enough detail there to sort it out.
