I just accidentally upgraded to the latest geeklog and a bunch of things are now screwed up. One being my styles. I have a hard time understanding all the style info. I

just want to change the size and color of the main top navigation links and the main size of all the text throughout the site. It's all too big. I can't seem to find the correct spot in the style.css

Can someone please tell me which style items control these two things?

Assuming you are using Geeklog v1.4.1 and the professional theme, you can shrink the overall size of all the text in your site by changing layout/professional/style.css line 57 from:

PHP Formatted Code

  font:.8em arial,sans-serif,verdana,tahoma,helvetica;
 


to:

PHP Formatted Code

  font:.6em arial,sans-serif,verdana,tahoma,helvetica;
 



For the header links, look for this section in style.css (lines 446-477):

PHP Formatted Code

.header-navigation-line {
  background:#E7E7E7;
 border-bottom:1px solid #CCCCCC;
 color:#FFFFFF;
 padding-bottom:3px;
  padding-top:4px;
  text-align:right;
}
.header-navigation-line a:link {
  background:transparent;
  border-bottom:0px solid #CCCCCC;
 color:#0000FF;
 font-size:.9em;
}
.header-navigation-line a:visited {
  background:transparent;
  border-bottom:0px solid #CCCCCC;
 color:#800080;
 font-size:0.9em;
}
.header-navigation-line a:hover {
  background:transparent;
  border-bottom:0px solid #CCCCCC;
 color:#008000;
 font-size:0.9em;
}
.header-navigation-line a:active {
  background:transparent;
  border-bottom:0px solid #CCCCCC;
 color:#FF0000;
 font-size:0.9em;
}
 


and change the color and font-size selectors to whatever you want for each of the class properties.

Hope this helps!

Thanks so much. I did already find those spots in the style sheets but for some reason they are not taking effect. I must have something hard coded somewhere. But thanks again for the help. At least I know I was looking at the right areas of the style sheet.

I'm almost sure that you already know this, but to be 110% sure: you did refresh the browser window? Especially Firefox makes it sometimes difficult to refresh the stylesheet.
