    Default Font size

    I am still trying to fingure out how to change the font size of areas like:

    about us page
    you are logged out page/message
    category descriptions
    gift certificate faq

    etc

    without changing the size of anythign else.

    this text is so small it is hard to read!!!

    You'll have to get your hands dirty in the stylesheet.css file for the template that you are using. There are FAQ's that discuss this. I would try there first if you don't know about CSS.

    For each one you need to determine the css tag and then find or add this to your stylesheet.

    For the about us page this is: and you can adjust the size as you see fit
    Code:
    #about_us {
            font-size: 1.5em;
            }

    Ok, I added this and it made the About Us page font size bigger.
    It also made the "babywearing info" text bigger.

    ??

    That's fine with me, but how do I determine the css tag for the other pages? I tried #gallery but it did not work.....


    It seems like a lot of work to change something that seems to me like it should be pretty basic.

    in your browser, do a view source of the page you want and find the following:

    <div class="centerColumn" id="contactUsDefault">

    the name after the id=is what would go in the stylesheet.css

    In this case the id in the stylesheet.css would be

    #contactUsDefault
