Change the "Sight" Theme tagline font and size

    How do I change the “Sight” Themed tagline font type and size? I’ve read through the forum and I’ve tried to enter codes suggested, but it isn’t working.

    When I go to the Appearance Link, Select Theme, Select Customize, Click CSS, the CSS Table is completely blank. I think this is to protect my “Sight” Theme CSS feed. I understand any new code I add will override the original theme.

    However, I don’t know what code to use. Can you please help?

    The blog I need help with is


    It’s normal for the Appearance → Custom Design → CSS editor to be blank to start with. The editor is designed to let you add in CSS as you go. To find out what CSS is in place already, I recommend using the built in browser tools to see what CSS a page is using or browse through the HTML of a page to see what CSS applies to it. Here is a related tutorial for it if you are using Internet Explorer 9:

    There is also a way to see a link to the original theme stylesheet from the Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page by clicking “Edit” next to “Mode: Add-on”, but note that you should not copy and paste the entire theme stylesheet into your editor unless you know what you are doing. It can cause a few problems if you don’t know what to update after you copy.


    After all that :) I went to look at your current tagline and I see that you currently aren’t showing a text tagline and that you’re using an image instead:

    To change that, you’ll need to adjust the image directly.

    To update the tagline in the Sight theme if you were displaying the tagline, you could use CSS like this:

    #masthead .site-description {
    	font-size: 18px;
    	font-family: Georgia, Times, “Times New Roman”, serif;

    Thank you for the information.

    I posted a custom image in place of my title, because I wanted to have something nice to look at while I worked on the problem.

    Basically, I have two issues:
    1. I want to change the font type, size, and width of my header title. The standard design doesn’t look good with long titles, because it makes my title three lines long. I want it all on the same line, so I assume I need to adjust the width
    2. I want to do the same for the tagline.

    In addition, is there a way to put a twitter button in my header or in the secondary menu that appears next to the header?

    Thank you!
