    I am trying to figure out a way to make the body text in larger. I have the CSS upgrade and in custom fonts I can only increase the Body Text to +3. I would like to make the text even larger if possible. can you please help me? many thanks!!

    Ooo, I love the background you picked! It looks nice with the Oxygen theme.

    I checked and the font size there already looks pretty big to me. Make sure you’re not accidentally viewing the theme with font size adjusted separately through your local browser settings (that happens sometimes).

    Here is a CSS rule you can add to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page that will set the base font which most other fonts in that theme will also adjust to:

    body {
    	font-size: 125% !important;

    Adjust the percentage as necessary.

    Note that you may run into some areas where the font size is still small. That could happen if there is a more specific rule in the stylesheet or in a widget you might add and you can always adjust those as you find them. For example, here is how to increase the font size of the “Share this:” text at the bottom of pages on your website:

    div.sharedaddy h3,
    #content div.sharedaddy h3,
    #main div.sharedaddy h3,
    #primary div.sharedaddy h3 {
        font-size: 18px;

    thank you for your help!!!
