Solved Posts font size

Post by sinbadthebad on January 25th 2017, 11:32 am

How can I increase the font size of the forum members posts.
Some members are complaining that the font size is too small.
I have tried adjusting the size in .... Display>Pictures and colours>colours>main font size .... but that does not work other than changing the sizes of other fonts that are already OK.
I am unfamiliar with css sheets and don't understand quite how to access them or change them.
Thanks

Copy and paste the code she gave you on top of the sheet.

Code:
.postmain .post-entry .entry-content div div {  font-size: XXpx !important}

On the part of the code 'XXpx' change the 'XX' to the font size you want.

CSS is the part of the coding that makes the site' pretty' so anything you put in there won't cause anything to crash. Everything will be okay. If stuff doesn't go well, you can simply delete the entire coding on the sheet.

Make sure that you click the submit button, not the save button when you enter CSS codes.
