    I would like the H1 tag page titles to be smaller and a bit more bold. I would also like to darken the page body text up a bit. How would I do this in custom CSS?

    Hello,

    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 —

    h1.entry-title { ... }
    div.entry-content { ... }

    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.

    Actually, I just want to change the font size of the header (H1) it’s pretty big. I’m not big on coding.

    Here’s your CSS selector:

    h1.entry-title { ... }

    And here’s how the font-size and font-weight properties work in CSS:
