Is there an easy way to make the titles in post excerpts a little smaller and make the thumbs a little larger and rectangular? Thank you.

To modify the thumbnails, go to Dashboard > Settings > Media to set the media size at the width and height you desire. This can result in rectangular thumbnails but will not affect existing images associated with posts.

This change will apply to new posts. If you need to update prior posts, you'll need a plugin for that.

Batman's suggestion is correct. I'd complement it with a recommendation that you use Firebug (

Thank you Rob and batman. I tried adding "h4 { font-size: 8.2px;}" into the CSS Rules but it didn't change the font size on the excerpt posts in my category pages. I also tried in Pagelines Customize plug in under

but that didn't take effect either. Will take both of your advice about learning CSS. Thank you.

Hi,

Add this to your custom CSS, if I understand you correctly, this should resize the titles for the correct area.

Danny, thanks. That works, it make titles of post excerpts on home page/category pages smaller. Except it also changes the size of titles on the actual posts. Is there a way to only change the post excerpt titles and not the titles for individual posts? My site is 200rooms.com. Thank you...
