Custom Title Size on Your Thesis WordPress Blog

Custom Title Text Size Thesis WordPressChanging the size of your clickable title text in Thesis is easy as long as you like the limited choices. If none of those sizes works for your blog, you can set the size to anything you want with a little custom code.

I’ll show you how to change the font size of the title text to one of Thesis’ options and how to use any other size you want as well.

Thesis Theme Title Font Size

Go to Thesis>Design Options in the left navigation bar.

Click the box with the + sign next to Header.

Choose your size from the drop down menu. You are limited to: 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46 point sizes.

Click the Save button.

Custom Title Font Size

Go to Thesis>Custom File Editor in the left navigation bar.

Make sure custom.css is selected in the popup menu under Currently editing:…

Scroll to the bottom of the field. Add the following code, where x is the number and y is the unit:

.custom #header #logo {
font-size:xy;
}

For example, if you want your linked title text to be 50 pt you would add this code:

.custom #header #logo {
font-size:50pt;
}

If you wanted your linked text to be 6 em, you’d use this code.

.custom #header #logo {
font-size:6em;
}

Click the Save button.

    Awesome Alison, thanks so much for sharing this – I definitely want to do this since recently my H3 tagged headings are too big and dull – random. ??!!

    Hi Alison. I know that everyone loves Thesis so it’s really nice of you to show us how to makes changes to the code. I’m not using Thesis yet, but I know many bloggers that can benefit from this. Thanks!

    Great tip! So many personal finance bloggers are using the Thesis theme, and it’s hard to stand out without coding knowledge.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the tip. The one thing that drives me crazy about blogs like worpress is that is seems very difficult to make the text appear custom like you can with normal HTML. This helps.

    Glad to be of help, Mike. Most of my tutorials come about because clients need a problem solved. Once I solve it, I try to share so others interested can get the same results. 🙂
