    Hi …

    I’d like to change the font size for the header phone number on the homepage

    and maybe change the font size for the navigation bar.

    I’m a novice … so be kind please. 🙂

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Hello,

    No worries. These kinds of little changes that are outside of the theme’s options are CSS customizations you’d need to make to the theme.

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    For example, here’s how to change the header text font-size:

    #branding .header-text { font-size: ...; }

    http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_font_font-size.asp

    … You want to be careful with the main navigation because you’re going to also have to adjust the padding on the buttons to compensate with whatever font-size you change them to.

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
