    Hi, I am having a problem with wordpress and I don?t know how to solve it. I am using the Mandigo Theme in wordpress and I am trying to figure out the following:

    (a) How can i increase the space between lines and
    (b) how to increase the font in the text/content of a post?

    Someone told me I must change something in the following code (pastebin[dot]com/hc7criQs) from the theme?s style.css.php.

    However i cant figure out what exactly inside there affects the text/content of each post.. Can any expert help me please?

    Thanks in advance!

    Look for "line-height" in the css.

    By te way, if you are using Firefox, I highly recommend an addon called Firebug. Get it, install it, and you can point at any element on a page and it will show you the underlying code. Great if you want to start editing things :)

    a) Just hit enter in the editor. If not enough spaces are showing, in the html section add <p> </p> between lines.
    b) Edit stylesheet.css and add a new font with specified size to use in your posts, put <big></big> around the highlighted text, or change the font from paragraph to a heading in the editor if it is actually a header of sorts.

    I've used Mandingo Theme a couple of years ago. Nice theme. You may want try the Wordpress Forum or perhaps Mandingo's Wiki. There are a number of customization tips at their Wiki. The link for support in the Mandingo theme will take you to their wiki.
