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.April 11, 2013 at 10:54 am #113878
Sure – add following code into the quick css field:
and change the font size & line height values.

Bumped it to 14px. Worked perfectly, thanks!
BTW, any way to get rid of the stuff on the left side of a blog post?

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:
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/April 13, 2013 at 8:43 pm #113881
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.

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.April 17, 2013 at 2:38 pm #113883
