I think you perhaps need to find the css file that controls the theme you are using and modify the font size via this file.
Step 4 above instructs one to go to the style.css file. I did this; however, there are many references on the style.css file page to font size, and I am not able to ascertain which font size refers to the post that I have written.
If you're using IE8, hit F12 to launch Developer Tools which give you a point and click method of locating the relevant CSS rule on screen.
If you're using Firefox, get Firebug to do the same thing
From John Waller: “If you're using IE8, hit F12 to launch Developer Tools which give you a point and click method of locating the relevant CSS rule on screen.”
I have Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) so tried this method.
This sounded like another promising possibility; however, I have not been able to change the font size in my post using this method.
I have gone to Dashboard > Posts > Edit > then moused-over my post > clicked on "edit" and then hit F12. An enormous amount (20 pages or more) of CSS appears. I tried picking out the font size that I thought pertains to the post (under Text Area), and I have changed the font size from 13px to 24px; however, I have not been able to “save” the new setting. When I go back to it, it is back to 13px.
As a result, I have not been able to use a trial-and-error method to establish which font size I must change in order to change the font size of my post.
Sounds like you're fumbling around in the dark a little.
Can you provide a link to your Wordpress page so we can take a look?
For John Waller: Thank you for your interest. Since I have been able to change the font size using the Heading-1-through-6 method, I am going to just use this method. Perhaps, one day I’ll be able to figure out the rather complicated CSS system. Thanks again for your help.
