Font size appearing too small

    Last night I changed the Reading settings on my admin page to 1 from 10 and my syndication feeds to 5 from 10. This morning I received word that my articles are appearing very small on my home page. I am not sure why. I attempted to adjust the font size through tool >options in Firefox however, the font size did not change -- but remained the same according to my friend who did not see changes occur subsequently.

    I am not sure why the font size is appearing small and I have no idea how to make the font size larger for my readers. How can I change the font size to make the size of the font larger for my readers / visitors? Thank you for your assistance in advance. Craig

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

    I am using the Andreas 09 Theme

  3. You have copied and pasted from somewhere and brought in code that is messing things up. Open your latest post, highlight everything in the post and click the remove formatting button on the lower tool bar and that should take care of it. If it does not, you might have to go in and remove the span tags manually from the HTML tab.

  4. Well, wait. Apparently you are actually specifying the serif style fonts for your posts since I'm finding it in previous posts as well, but you are also including a "small font size declaration. This is what I'm seeing at the beginning of paragraphs in many of your posts.

    <span style="font-family:Times New Roman,serif;"><span style="font-size:small;">

    You need to edit each post and each paragraph and get rid of the
    <span style="font-size:small;">
    at the start of the paragraphs and also remove one of the ending span tags as well.

  5. What would be better if you are wanting to have serif style fonts for each post would be to put this at the beginning of each post (in the HTML editor)

    <div style="font-family:Times New Roman,serif; font-size:130%;">

    and then just put a closing div tag at the very end.

    </div>

    You can adjust the 130% number as you desire.

    Hi Sacredpath,
    Thank you for the above information, however I am completely confused. I did not have this problem with the size of my font for my articles being so small until after I changed the # of post in my Settings>Reading Blog pages show at most posts to 1 and then in Syndication feeds show the most recent from 10 to 1 items. I am not sure how that impacted the way font is appearing in my posts on Second Chance to Live, but I believe there is some correlation.

    Could you please check and see if that is what created the font situation -- as I have not had a problem with my font size prior to last evening after I made the changes in my Settings>Readings area.

    Thank you for your help in this matter.

    With help of several friends I found out what the problem was the created the font problem. I was saving my articles in rich text format and then copying and pasting the saved articles into a new post from my dashboard.

    Turns out that I needed to save my article in HTML Document (Open Office.org Writer)(.html) format in Open Office for the comparability issues with WordPress.com. I made the changes and bingo I got the desired results.

    Font is good now. With everything there is a learning curve.

    Thank you for your time, kindness and help in this matter Sacred Path.

    Have a pleasant evening Sir.

    Craig
