      Hello All, I have searched the forums and tried to make some changes in the CSS, but I am still having trouble, therefore, I am submitting this request.

      Here is my site:

      What I would like to change but having trouble with:

      1. My navigation menu – I would like to increase the font size.
      2. My widgets on the right column – I would like to increase the title font size.
      3. On the homepage, I want to have a shorter spacing between posts.

      I’ve tried but for some reason I can’t get it to work for these 3 things. I am very happy with my site, just trying to change these few minor things. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks – also, if anyone is ever in NYC and wants to come to a show, just let me know!
      Thank you!!!

      Jason M

        To increase the font size look at line 1532 in your style.css –

        .genesis-nav-menu {
        color: #ccc;
        font-size: 14px;
        font-size: 0.875rem;
        font-weight: 700;
        letter-spacing: 1px;
        letter-spacing: 0.1rem;
        line-height: 1.5;

        The widget title can be found on line 941 –

        .sidebar .widgettitle {
        font-size: 14px;
        font-size: 0.875rem;
        text-transform: uppercase;

        For the spacing on the homepage, take a look at line 1754 –

        .entry {
        margin-bottom: 40px;
        margin-bottom: 2.5rem;
        padding: 0 0 24px;
        padding: 0 0 1.5rem;

        Since they use px and rem for padding/margin and font sizes, you’ll need to change both the px and rem size. I would erase the rem and adjust the px to figure out what size you need, and then go to a site like this – to figure out the equivalent size in rem.

        In the future you may want to split up your questions into separate threads since that’s part of Appfinite’s rules here to make everything easier to search –

        I watched a couple of your videos by the way, and I’m loving it! I can definitely relate to this one – Keep up the good work!


          Hey Jason,

          Sorry I am just now responding. I sincerely apologize. I just wanted to say thank you so much for this information. It came in handy a couple months ago. I have since changed my site to a different template that better serves my purpose, but Appfinite makes awesome sites. Mainly,I’m not that skilled at it and the template I currently have is just easier for me to personally use, but I think you guys make great stuff and I wanted to thank you for your help.

          Thanks for checking out some of my videos. I appreciate it. Super cool of you dude! Thanks for the kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed them. Oh yeah, that’s a fun clip too. hahaha, I’m glad you get it. 馃檪

          Thanks man, if you’re ever in NYC, and want to come to a show, just let me know.

          Awesome, thanks dude!

          PS – sorry I didn’t originally submit through the correct forum. I apologize. Thanks so much!!
