Solved Editing basic CSS stylesheet

Post by pdun459 on August 28th 2018, 6:35 pm

Hello. I'm trying to change the font size of the main title on my Home page. I'm using the basic CSS stylesheet in Adminisrtation Panel>Display>Colors>CSS Stylesheet tab. I can view the basic stylesheet but I'm stumped as to how to make changes to it. I tried copying CSS from the basic stylesheet and pasting it into the window in the CSS Stylesheet tab, making changes, then clicking submit but nothing changes on my Home page and when I recheck the basic stylesheet nothing has changed. Can you please advise on what I'm doing wrong. Thanks.

So when you have that "Force the basic CSS" button clicked, it is just going to use that. You need to copy it, make changes to it and change the button to not force the basic CSS to allow you to make customer changes.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
James

Use the same ID or class you want to change from default CSS and then, just that specific property, and change the value but use it like this for example:

Code:
color:red!important;

SO simply add this !important part and it must work

Thanks Jadster. It's working now but I see I was modifying the wrong value. This is my site http://waitetarot.forumotion.com/. I'd like to change the size of "Waite Tarot Forum" at the top of the page. Would you know which code to change for that? Thanks.

If you want to change that. Look in the CSS for the following code.
Code:
#site-title h1 {
padding-top: 0;
}

That is what you will need to edit to make it larger, change colors, ect.

Hope this helps!

add this to your css or if you already have it then change the font size to your likeness

Code:

#site-title, #site-title h1 {
    font-size: 30px;
}
