How can this be accomplished? It seems like every time that I change the font size of the parent items, it also effects the child items, also. Also, is there any way to put the most recent blog-post item in one of the feature boxes on the front page? That would be awesome, too. Thanks in advance!!!

The child items inherit the css from their parents. You can use firebug to find the css rules that would be responsible. It might be something like `#nav ul ul {font-size:10px;}` etc. For the feature box...what version theme are you using?

try this custom css: ` #nav ul.dropdown ul li a { font-size:10px; } ` or whatever font size you want

Awesome! Thanks for that! But now the actual divs for each link are still the same size and the text is small. I'll show you a link. http://02f5cdd.netsolhost.com/blog/ Also - feature box with the latest blog/news post in it?

So you want the whole area to shrink not just the text?
