    Are you using a Child Theme, or ‘Jetpack’ or ‘Custom CSS’ plugin?

    You’ll know if you’re using a Child Theme (so you’re probably not), check your plugins section of the dashboard to see whether you have those plugins.

    Hi there.

    go into the stylesheet and copy and paste this

    #sidebar h1 {
    font-size: 3em;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: 0.9;
    margin-bottom: 0.25em;
    }

    that should change the font so it fits in the yellow box.

    thanks

    Make sure not to edit the theme’s files.
    Modifications to the themes files will compromise the theme and be compromised when the theme updates.

    the stylesheet is part of the theme’s files.

    Yes, and Andrew’s point stands — changes should be made in a Child Theme or custom CSS option or plug-in.

    Correct, but he’s asking how you change it not where you change it.

    Then don’t recommend editing the theme’s stylesheet.

    its the only way to do it without making it more complicated. I awnsered his question.

    @danny – your intentions are good and thank you for helping out here. But we really try to give people good guidance about how they make changes — so that they don’t have major problems later on because they’ve changed theme files and then lost the changes when WP is updated. It’s really unfortunate when they come back to the forums, understandably upset and say, “but no one told me, and so and so told me to change the files…” Please help accordingly.

    Indeed… Apologies for any confusion.

    What you need to do then is install the custom css or jetpack and place the css I wrote above in there. It will overwrite the css on the theme.

    Thank you all. But I’m confused. How do I install the custom css?
