    I’m having trouble with the font size of my blog entries.

    I just posted a new entry and it decreased the text of the older entry. I created a test post to see if the same thing happened with the March 8th entry, and it did indeed decrease the font size of the older entry. Help please? Thanks!

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

    We pretty much always need a direct link to your blog, starting with http, in order to help. In this particular case, though, I’m going to take a wild guess:

    Whoops, sorry. I thought the link to my blog was already included. My bad.

    That’s the way the theme you’ve chosen is designed. If you don’t like that feature, you can set the number of posts per page to 1 or set a static front.

    Is there any way I can change that? I’d like all my entries to remain the same size.

    Note that font size is reduced only in the main posts page (as a way of highlighting the latest post). When you access a single post via categories or any other related widget, it’s back to normal again – that’s why I suggested the static front.

    Anyway, you can force ‘normal’ size in your main page by enclosing your posts in this code (in the html editor):
    <span style="font-size:14px;">COMPLETE CONTENT HERE</span>

    Excellent. Thank you. That code corrects the font size. However, it also eliminates the line spacing.

    Consider the static page: http://acloudymirror.wordpress.com/2009/01/01/out-with-the-old-year-in-with-the-new/

    Compared with the text on the front page (scroll down to first entry): http://acloudymirror.wordpress.com/

    What code do I need to force line spacing?

    I can only suspect what you mean by “eliminates the line spacing”, as I don’t see anything of this sort in the page you link to (or in my test blog) – maybe it’s browser specific. Try this:

    <div style="height:16px;"></div>
    <div style="font-size:14px;line-height:1.4;">
    COMPLETE CONTENT HERE
    </div>

    (If you’d like to have even more space between the post title and the beginning of the text, you can change 16 to a larger number.)
