    Hi, is there a custom css code (or another way) to enlarge the default font size of the entire theme? I was hoping your theme options in the dashboard would allow for a main font size, but it does not.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hey!

    Sure – add following code into the quick css field:

    body {
    font-size: 13px;
    line-height: 1.65em;
    }

    and change the font size & line height values.

    Regards,

    Peter

    Bumped it to 14px. Worked perfectly, thanks!

    BTW, any way to get rid of the stuff on the left side of a blog post?

    Thank again!

    I have been trying to do the same thing to no avail. In fact I’ve added the code in three different places: the quick css area, the custom.css file, and in my child theme, the style.css file. The code I’ve added in all three places is this:

    body {
    color: #33333;
    font-size: 15px;
       line-height: 25px;
    }

    But the site keeps pulling from the base.css no matter what I do. Any notion what I might be doing wrong? The site is at http://www.websitetogether.com/avoid-wordpress-mistakes/

    Hi kaylesimon,

    It looks like you pasted in the css with hidden characters in it (maybe from Microsoft word or something like that). Take a look at your custom.css file live here: http://www.websitetogether.com/wp-content/themes/replete/css/custom.css?ver=1

    Try editing your css/php files with something like notepad++ to prevent this kind of thing.

    Hi Devin,

    First, sorry I got a bit impatient on that one; wasn’t sure older queries were being checked as often, but I should have known better.

    Second, that css file was created in BBedit and those special characters are definitely not in it. In fact I just ftp’ed it back to myself again to reopen it, in BBedit, and they are not there. So now i guess the question becomes why do they appear online? I’ve never had that happen before…

    As a test I uploaded a file with absolutely no spaces in it and that was the only way I could get rid of those.

    I suppose the best thing to do now is contact hostgator and ask them what the heck is going on; i changed to a VPS account and I have a feeling whatever is happening is related somehow to that, because it clearly isn’t about the theme or about my file. I will update here when I get an answer, on the off chance anyone else ever has this issue.

    Thanks again.

    Strange for sure but let us know if they have anything to add to it.

    Regards,
