Support » Themes and Templates » Need to change the font and line spacing of post content

  • I have searched Google and the support forums for hours but cannot figure out how to change the font and line spacing of the post content. I am using the Standard Theme. The current font is Arial, and the lines are very close together. I know I must edit the CSS, and have tried to edit various parts of the post section.

    I know I need to enter something like this:
    font-family:Georgia, “Times New Roman”, Sans-Serif

    However, where do I put this line of code so that it changes all the text within a post?

    How can I also change the line spacing of a post?

    Thanks for any help!

  • Look for:

    .post p {
    font-size: 14px;
    font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Arial, Sans-Serif;
    margin-bottom: 20px;
    line-height: 25px;
    }

    Got it, thanks! That works perfectly, except that the line spacing doesn’t take effect with the numbered list in the post. Any suggestion on how I can make the same spacing apply to any numbered or bulleted lists?

    Can you add some post to your site so I can take a look?

    Yes, sorry – it’s up now.

    Try adding the CSS selectors for the list elements.
    E.g

    .post p,
    .post ol li {
     font-size: 14px;
     font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Arial, Sans-Serif;
     margin-bottom: 20px;
     line-height: 25px;
    }

    That worked – thank you!!!!
