Adjusting title/logo size and centreing items on pages

    I have two key questions:

    1. Reducing the size of site title/icon/logo on inside pages

    In the Arcade demo, the site title and icon are smaller on the inside pages as opposed to the front page. How exactly was this achieved?

    I have inserted a logo to take the place of the title+icon on my site, and I did manage to change the size of this on each of my inside pages with CSS. This then caused problems with how it fit in the mobile version, though again I was able to resolve this with CSS. The problem remains that I would have to update this for every new page I add. If there is no simpler way to adjust the logo size on the inside pages, is there a way to set one format type for the home page and another for all other pages?

    2. Centreing various items on pages

    Is it possible to move the title of a particular page to the centre of that page?

    Is it possible to move the contact form on a contact page to the centre of that page?

    The blog I need help with is rebeccaalasdair.com.

    1. In order to control the CSS for something on the home page and on all other pages, I suggest using the ‘.home’ CSS selector like this:

    // inner pages
    #site-title {
       font-size: 28px;
    }
    
    // home page
    .home #site-title {
       font-size: 60px;
    }

    2. To center the page title you can use this:

    .page .entry-title {
       text-align: center;
    }

    3. Since your contact form has the ID ‘post-3’ you can use that as your CSS selector:

    #post-3 {
       text-align: center;
    }

    Should that first block of CSS also work for the site description? For example, I’ve written:

    #site-description {
    	font-size: 17px;
    }
    
    .home #site-description {
    	font-size: 23px;
    }

    This worked to adjust the description size on the home page, but not on the inside pages. It only seems to adjust on the inside pages when I designate the page IDs.

    Just checked out your site and it seems to be working. Looks like you had to use the important declaration to overwrite some other CSS that was added.

    Yes I managed to get it working. Thanks for your help!
