changing font size for headers

  1. Following instructions found here, http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/07/11/formatting-text-pt-5/ I changed the size of a post from beginning to end, with <div style="font-size:120%;>
    TEXT HERE, ENTIRE POST INCLUDING HEADERS
    </div>
    The help page does advise not to change the size of the entire blog text, since others' browsers may render it differently etc. I'll take that risk until I hear from folks.

    But the headers did not increase in size, so they are now smaller than the body text, and the next-up header size is all caps and I don't like that look.

    Is there a way around this, for the non-CSS person?

    The post is the most recent one, at https://nosleepingdogs.wordpress.com/2010/10/24/christine-odonnell-religion-and-the-human-brain/

    The blog I need help with is nosleepingdogs.wordpress.com.

    The style of each (auto) heading is determined by the CSS of the theme - you cannot alter it unless you buy the CSS upgrade. You'll have to change these:
    <h4>TEXT HERE</h4>
    to this:
    <p style="font-size:125%;font-style:italic;color:#888;">TEXT HERE</p>

  3. Thanks, panaghiotisadam, I was afraid that might be the case. I guess my other alternative would be to find a 3rd-party theme that matched my preferred fonts and sizes.

  4. If you are talking of third-party themes from outside wordpress.COM (not at appearance > themes in your dashboard) then you cannot use those. Themes from off the internet are for self-hosted wordpress blogs. We cannot add themes here.

  5. Okay, I'm glad you corrected me on this.Always a source of confusion, the .com and .org differences.
