    HELP. Body Text size

    I got this blogger template and was able to figure out how to make a bunch of little changes on my own with no previous coding experience. However one is still really bugging me and the creator of the template is of absolute no help what-so-ever.

    IF you click the link at the bottom and you look on the homepage in the "Latest news" section.

    I have text and pictures before the read more. I was able to get the pics to look natural and not stretched like the original code was doing. But I still can't figure out how to make the text bigger, without changing the size of the text for the whole homepage.

    Anyways hopefully this isnt too much of a Noob question or repeat, as I am more into the music stuff. But I know what its like to answer the same question a 100 times to someone new lol..

    Thanks again I appreciate any help

    heres the link.

    Try this:
    Code:
    .news-thumb-wrapper h3
    {
         font-size: 19px;
    }
    Just adjust the size as you need it.

    Hope this helps. Let me know!

    Regards,

    LC.

    Hey, appreciate the help.

    I just gave it a shot and oddly enough I tried it before I just didnt notice it until the wrong text got bigger lol. It ended up making the post title bigger. If you look on the home page its the text right beside the blue arrowof every post.

    Wow this is frustrating.

    Hello ModernMixing,
    That text should be in paragraph tags so you can style it from the CSS.

    It's pretty unusual to wrap all your text in spans like this. You can target that span from the CSS like this -
    Code:
    #p8462164285236408337 {font-size: 18px;}
    Normally it would be like this though -
    markup:
    Code:
        <p>
            What's the secret to the Master Bus? What's the best compressor? What's the best Limiter? 
            Should I EQ my track, and if so how should I do it? These are some of the common questions 
            in regards to the master bus. They come up, quitefrankly more often then I'd like to see. 
            This is a reason why I decided to cover this topic. To try and get peoples focus away from 
            the master bus and into the mix. Mastering engineers have been working on their craft for 
            years so it's no surprise that they are genious when it comes to the Master Bus. I also 
            believe that a mastering engineer worth his weight in gold will tell you not to wait until 
            it gets to the mastering stage.
        </p>
    And CSS: p {font-size: 18px;}
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad

    Your post title is in heading tags and LearningCoder's suggested CSS .news-thumb-wrapper h3 targets it.

    Nice. That worked. althought I must admit is a pain in the neck to have to do it to everything. I actually would like to show more of my post as well as a "tease" but the template I got is limiting me in that capacity. So is there a way to show more and at the same time edit the size so its automatic and I dont have to keep adding that CSS code to every post
