    after i bought my theme and it was live, I realized that it appears much larger on the screen that most other blogs (it doesn’t preview as full screen so i couldn’t see this). How can i reduce the overall scale for the blog theme? basically making larger margins on each size and reducing the size of the photos and text for the individual blog posts and also my photo on the side bar (i would like to reduce the size of everything, but also have separate control of font size)

    The blog I need help with is: havenbydesign.com

    Hi ngordon1980,

    It looks like you might have found the fix but you can try this css to make the width smaller.

    .container, .wide .entry-content {
      max-width: 980px;
    }

    Let me know which font-size you want to reduce and I will find that css for you.

    Thanks,
    Chandra

    thanks so much! if i want to play around with the margins i just adjust the 980 number, correct? or don’t mess with anything? :)

    when i put this and the other CSS into the blog, one weird thing happened, the first feature image on the top blog post now shows the full image, and not cropped like the rest, do you have any idea why that’s happening? I’ve tried deleting and re-selecting the feature image but i’m not sure what could have happened.

    The font I would like smaller are the titles of each individual blog post, they are just so HUGE compared to everything else!

    thanks so much for the help!

    Hi Nancy,

    Yes, you can play around with that number to best fit your needs.

    Is the image showing full image? I see it cropped from my end.

    For post titles, please try this

    .wf-active .entry-title { font-size: 20px; }

    You can play around with that 20px. :)

    Thanks,
    Chandra
