You’ll need to use Custom CSS (in Site Options > Custom Code > Custom CSS). CSS that changes the size of text consists of two parts: the selector and the font-size attribute.

Selector: Used to select the kind of text you want to adjust (whether it’s post content or headings).

To find the selector for your text, you'll need to use Firebug (or Chrome Development tools). To learn how to use Firebug for CSS customizations, please read and follow these instructions: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Custom_CSS.

For help with the font-size attribute, please see these instructions: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_font_font-size.asp

I tried the following, but doesn't change the fonts

body { font-size: 14px; }

h1 { font-size: 30px; }

h2 { font-size: 24px; }

h3 { font-size: 20px; }

h4 { font-size: 18px; }

Your CSS needs to be more specific. For example, for h1, are you looking to change ALL h1 tags or a specific h1 tag?

You can visit the site, the H1 and H2 tags on homepage and single posts are too big..even the pages with tag listings or the results pulled out after putting certain keyword in search box.. all are too big. I want to make them appear tidy..

Here's an example of why Catrina's saying you need more specific tags or selections for your font size.

This is the default code for titles:


h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, .entry-title, .entry-title a {

    color: #222222;

    text-shadow: 0 1px 0 rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.15);

}

You can see that all the H levels are there in one tag. So, if you did:

h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, .entry-title, .entry-title a {

    color: #222222;

    font-size: 24px;

    text-shadow: 0 1px 0 rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.15);

}

Every single title would be 24px, including those that are now 14px. So, you have to break it down to something like:

h2, .entry-title, .entry-title a {



	color: #222222;

	font-size: 24px;

	text-shadow: 0 1px 0 rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.15);

}

And have one set of code for each size you want.

As for the body, WP doesn't really use a body font since it applies text to sections, Again, you need to find those and apply the size individually, allowing the CSS to affect just that type of section.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
