Hi Guys,

The default font for the post (content) is too small for me.

I would like to change the post's font style but don't know where to apply the changes. Please help!

PS: I'm completely new with WordPress.

You'll find most any kind of customization you need in the Atahualpa Themes Options, under Appearance in the left panel of your dashboard. Go to Body/Text/Links and use the CSS to change your text size, color, etc., in Body Style.

I have mine like this;
Code:
background: #003366;
font-family: Tahoma, Helvetica, Geneva, sans-serif;
font-size: 10pt;
color: #000000;
padding-top: 5px; padding-bottom: 10px;
My site: http://www.larchmontgazette.com

NOTE: The font size above controls the text in the body of an article or excerpt. To control headlines and other font sizes, look in the Post/Page styling area.

Uhmm, it didn't work. When I changed mine, the font for the ENTIRE site changed.

I just want to change the default font for the "post" alone.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

From the Post/Page Styling area, you see this:
Quote:
The text and links in the post/page main text box can be styled on the main tab "Text & Link Styling".
I'm not sure what else you mean. You can change headlines, sidebar text, widget titles and such separately.

From the Body, Text and Links, there's a BODY STYLE setting with the following default values:

Code:
font-family: tahoma, arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 0.8em;
color: #000000;
background: #ffffff;
This setting will produce this:


If I change the font-size to 1.0em...

Code:
font-family: tahoma, arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 1.0em;
color: #000000;
background: #ffffff;
This is what will happen...



Everything was affected as opposed to the "post" only. What I would like to change is the font-size of the "post" only. As marked in the screenshot below:


Thanks for the help!

On a related note, I'm trying to change the font size of the page titles only.

Under "Body, Text and Links" the font size is set to 0.8em. After experimenting, I added "font-size: 2.0em;" to the "Headline Box:Text" under "Style Posts and Pages." That looked great on all the pages except it was HUGE for the Blog posts.

Does anyone know how to do this?

I found the solution in the video under the thread http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthr...age+title+font which was to add "font-size: 32px; " to the Headline Box sections under "Style Posts and Pages." (32 px was the font size I wanted, but others would have to experiment to find the right size for their site)

Juggledad, I also found your link to the CSS intro stuff, which I am totally happy about. I don't have any idea about this stuff but I'm figuring out the CSS by trial and error. Thank you!
