elemin h1 headings and leave comments link

  1. Hello WP gurus,

    I'm using the elemin theme with custom upgrade for my political-culture.com blog and have run into some obstacles.

    First, I would like to make the post titles smaller and the widget titles on the right (recent posts, categories, etc) larger, but they are both h1 headers. If I make the first smaller, the second become microscopic. I wasn’t able to find anything in the css that could explain the size difference if they’re coded the same. Can you help?

    Second, I’d like to make the “leave a comment” link text larger and maybe a different color so it doesn’t disappear on the page (at the bottom of the tags and categories). What I tried was changing the font size under “Post Metadata and Post Format Icons”:

    .entry-meta a {
    font-size: 13px;
    font-style: normal;
    font-variant: small-caps;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    but that made all of those tags, etc. larger, too, which defeated the purpose. Can you recommend something I could try?

    Thanks for your help!

    The blog I need help with is political-culture.com.

    You have the heading size set to "-5" on the Appearance → Custom Design → Fonts page and that's crazy tiny for widget titles. :)

    Try adding this to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS editor to just target those:

    #secondary .widget-title {
    	font-size: 16px;
    }

    Try this:

    .entry-meta .comments-link a {
    	color: #f00;
    	font-size: 140%;
    	font-weight: bold;
    }

    Adjust the percentage and change out the color code as needed.

    Those suggestions took care of the problems. Before, if I made the widget titles a normal size, the post title was billboard sized.

    The 0to255 website will be very helpful since I feel like experimenting with colors these days.

    If you have time for one other question, I tweaked the email subscribe button a few days ago by copying someone's modification for a different blog theme. It worked for elemin but changed the shape from rounded corners to a regular rectangle.
    I couldn't see in the style sheet where to change the elemin button color, which has a nicer shape that I'd like to keep.
    I could post this question under a different topic if necessary.
