Changing width of widgets on front page

  1. Hi, on my front page you can see that the text is large and there are 3 posts per row.
    How do I change the font size so that I can fit the whole title on the widget, and also change it to 2 posts per row?

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is janecowie.com.

  2. The only themes we can use on WordPress.COM hosted sites are here https://wordpress.com/themes/ The way your theme is designed to function and the features it has are found at the detailed description page, for example at https://wordpress.com/theme/resonar and that's where the live demo site link is also found. We cannot change how any theme functions. We can do some CSS editing to change appearance only if we have the required upgrade.

    WordPress.COM is a multi user blogging platform with off the shelf themes and it's aimed for use by those who do not code. Each theme is uniquely designed. We wordpress.com bloggers do not have access to the template files underlying our themes and we cannot edit them, as our blogs share a common architecture, and as all blogs wearing the same theme use the same underlying template, found on the live demo site for each theme.

    Does Customize let me edit HTML?
    No. Customize allows you to edit fonts, colors, and CSS only. You can change the appearance of a theme, but not its HTML markup or PHP code. If you require this functionality, please consider moving your blog to a web host that supports theme code modifications. You can read more about why here http://support.wordpress.com/code/, and find a suitable host here http://get.wp.com/hosting/.

    Note 1: Once you have the required upgrade you can use this link http://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/css-customization#postform so you can create a thread that will appear in the CSS Forum where you will get the help you need with CSS editing.

    Note 2: You can also post there prior to purchasing an upgrade to get an answer to whether or not what you want to do can be accomplished via CSS editing.
