[Resolved] need help with theme css

  • new issues I am having now, text on about page is way too small and cannot for the life of me figure out which snippet of css I need to alter to make it larger and change the font.

    also, footer has huge un-needed space above the verbiage that again I have tried to get rid of and again can’t seem to find the right code snippet to alter

    anyone have a clue how to fix (meaning which code snippet to alter)

    web url is musicofthemarket.com

    thanks!!

    meaning which code snippet to alter)

    You really should not be modifying theme files – as those changes will be lost when the theme is updated. Instead use a child theme or custom CSS plugin (if you are only making CSS changes).

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Looks like you changed the content font size?

    The footer space is caused by this margin:

    #footerdivs {
        margin: 10px auto;
        padding-left: 15%;
        text-align: left;
    }

    To change it, COPY the relevant part to custom CSS or a child theme and change it there – so this:

    #footerdivs {
        margin: 0 auto;
    }

    It’s also being caused by this empty element:

    <p class="credit"> </p>

    which still has this CSS:

    #footer p.credit {
        padding: 10px 0 15px;
        text-align: center;
    }

    You can change that by using:

    #footer p.credit {
       display: none;
    }

    BTW, you might want to start validating your site – as you seem to have created quite a few mark-up errors:

    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.musicofthemarket.com%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

    A child theme is a better way to go if you’re modifying theme files.

    this theme comes with a place to put my own css under its settings and options, I KNOW not to alter the themes css code and I know how to write css, so if there are markup issues that’s on the author not me, but I will definitely run it through the validation to see if there are things I can do to fix it without compromising the theme, thanks for pointing it out to me…..I am still trying to hunt down the snippet I need to override for the font on the about page, I know it is a class called singlepost entry…going through the themes css trying to find it…wish me luck !!

    have been through the style sheet back and forth till my eyes are starting to cross…this is the code on the about page that is affecting the font size and style

    <div class=”singlepost entry”>

    I cannot find that class in the themes css to copy and override to save my life…can anyone else find it for me pretty please…thanks !!

    ran the page through the validator, all the warnings showing are either wrong (saying I didn’t close a tag when I did, I double check every single one again) or it’s issues with the themes author’s code, when I am not touching.
