Changing Page Title Font Size (Hum Theme)

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering how it's possible to change the page title font size for the Hum theme. Every time I go into the CSS and select the mode from Add-On to Replacement the whole formatting of the blog goes away which is strange because at the point I haven't changed any of the code. Anyways even when I do that, I'm still not able to see the CSS code...If anyone could give me the code for the Add-On option that would be great. Don't need any color adjustments, just size.

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is atheerlabsblog.com.

  2. Hi there, if you choose to replace, then the WordPress software assumes you are going to create the entire stylesheet yourself and totally replace the existing. What is better, unless you are going to do extensive CSS modifications, is to leave it as "add-on" and then you create CSS rules that will load after the original CSS and override the existing rules. One added benefit of doing it this way is that it is much easier to keep track of what you have and have not changed.

    There is an add-on for Firefox called Firebug, which allows you to identify the CSS and HTML elements of the site and it will show you the CSS for that element. It also allows you to test changes in real-time directly from the browser which is a great thing. If you install Firebug and then take a little time to get familiar with it, you will find it an invaluable tool when doing CSS.

    The following link will give you a little more information about using CSS here at WordPress.com: http://en.support.wordpress.com/editing-css/

    I hope that helps. Please let us know if you have any questions or experience any problems.

    If you would like to have the original stylesheet for reference, you can access it here and then copy it and paste it into a plain text file. Do not paste the entire stylesheet into the editor as it can cause image used in the theme design to disappear since the CSS uses relative links for the theme images.

    I hope that helps. Please let us know if you have any further questions or encounter any problems.

    Cheers!

    I think this was happening to you because of a bug which was fixed yesterday. Can you try the CSS editor again? Please post back here if you're still having any trouble with it.
