Just Delete - I give up...

Post by plasticparadise on September 27th 2012, 5:22 pm

I like the size of the fonts on my forum but my users are having a hard time with the font size used when you are typing messages. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to edit the size (it looks like it's about a 10) without editing the CSS Stylesheet which I'm not a pro at - I'm all thumbs with this kind of stuff. Can anyone give me simple directions as to how to bump up the message typing font up to at least a 12 for them? They are claiming that they are old ladies and it's straining their eyes. HELP! Please!!!!

Have you gone to AP>>Display>>Colors>>?

On that page you can adjust the font size. However if its written in your CSS stylesheet it won't change it, then you'll need to go to AP>>Display>>Colors>>Css Stylesheet and find this part of the code first:

Code:
body {

and in that body tag you should see this code that addresses the font size:

Code:
font-size: 10

Change the number from whatever it is to 12.

Now, if you just want to change the font size in the posts, you can simply add this code to your stylesheet and change the number to whatever font size you want:

Code:
.post-entry {
    font-size: 15px;
    }

The font I want to change is not listed in the display area -- the other fonts related to the forum are and I changed them. So it would have to be changed in the CSS Stylesheet as you pointed out. I understand what to look for in the CSS stylesheet but not how to change it. I know you can view it but since I did not create the theme, I'm wondering if I can edit it.

Yes of course you can edit it..lol

Just put your cursor in the stylesheet and edit it, then save your settings.
