Tiny font size?

    One paragraph in my latest post is appearing in a very tiny font; I don’t want this to happen and don’t know why it is happening. What can I do?

    The blog I need help with is whyiamnotafeminist.com.

    Manifest makes divs without any additional inline styling show with a very small font.

    I see this in your source code:

    <div>My grandfather had been suffering from …etc…died; his</div>
    <div>relatives figured…etc…
    they got together and</div>
    <div>decided that…etc…
    enough to take over.</div>

    Get rid of those div tags in the text (code) editor and all will be well.

    Are you copying and pasting from somewhere? A word processing program, maybe? Otherwise, I don’t know how those tags got into your post.

    Have you tried checking your font style? It may change automatically.

    No, font sizes do not change “automatically.” Coding causes what appears on a post, page. In this case, the css (cascading style sheet) of the theme is regulating how text appears in div tags. The div tags might have been added accidentally by copying from a word processor or because of some other logical reason.

    Thank you very much, 1tess, and yes, I did copy and paste this post: won’t make that mistake again :)

    Thanks to you too, taylorswift 619 :)

    You are most welcome.

    I did not mean to be harsh: only that what one does here on wp.com is supposed to be logical. If you have had a problem with font sizes changing without apparent cause, then you should ask about it. If something changes unexpectedly then it could be something you did, or it could be a theme “bug” which can and should be fixed.

    @undoingfeminism1234: You should never copypaste from other sources into the Visual editor; when you need to copypaste, switch the editor to Text.
