Question Changing font size of forum titles on main page and topics in forums

Just wanting to know how to change the font size on the forum titles on the main page and perhaps the font sizes on other bits of that main front page. Also curious about topic font size inside a forum. I managed to change the font inside a post using using Style Variables from admincp, but nothing else.

Cheers in advance!

You could use css in the additional.css template to change the fontsize of any text.

In the admincp, click on Styles --> Style Manager

for the style you want to change select the action Edit Templates

In the list of templates, select the category CSS Templates and then choose the template additional_css.

Enter the code tin that template and save

Or if you are on cloud you have to use the sitebuilder -> style -> css-editor.

Thanks, I think I am almost there.



When I double click on CSS_additional.CSS (it is in orange) - nothing changes in the code tin (that I have pointed to with the arrow - is that the code tin?). It still reads 'CSS Templates.' However any other category I choose - it alters what is the code tin (or what I think is the code tin..)

When you are looking at the screen you posted, the Edit button should be available, it appears to be dimmed on your site.



When you click edit or doubl click it, you should see and editing screen that appears as below



The code would be entered in the box labeled tempate. Sorry for the confusion by the way, there is no code "tin" that should have been "in" in my original post, but I got a C in typing in high school.

I didn't see your response until today. Are you, by chance on vbCloud? If so, you need to get at the additional css tremplate another way.

On your site, log in as administrator,
Set Edit Site to ON
Click on Style and the screen will switchto the style editor as shown below



click on the CSS Editor tab
select your style and select the template css_additional.css



Enter the text in the box provided and save changes.
