    i am using the titanium theme for a few blogs, but i am having an issue with the size of the text. it is too small for even my 20/20 vision. anyone out there know how i can increase the size of the text?

    i am also having the same problem with a few other themes and think i am just missing how to do this.

    thanks for your help.

    Look into the CSS file they have for the theme, you should be able to edit the text size for posts in there.

    look for this line

    font-size: xx px;

    inside the body selector

    body {
    font-size: xx px;
    }

    where xx is the pixel size of the font to be displayed on your theme

    since you said you are using the titanium theme

    Code:
    /*CSS Reset*/
    @import url(css/reset.css);
    /*Get the grid, baby!*/
    @import url(css/grid.css);
    
    body { /* This is where you set many of the universal defaults */
    	background: #111111 url(images/body-bg.jpg) top repeat-x; color: #FFF;
    	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    [B]	font-size: 11px;[/B]  [COLOR="Red"][COLOR="Yellow"]<--- change this value[/COLOR][/COLOR]
    	text-align: center;
    	margin: 0px; padding: 10px 0px;

    istar, you really went out of your way to give a great response.

    I didn't ask the question and don't need the answer, but I thank you anyway!

    If you want to have a real clean refresh at once use CTRL+F5.
    This clears any kind of cache and retrieves the data from the Net.
