Sorry for this basic question, but I'm having a hard time editing the size of text for the titles on the pages on my wordpress website. The html is below

<h1 class="hero-title"> COVID Visual </h1>

banner for Page

  • This really depends on your theme. Is it a custom theme, a theme that allows you to edit the title size in Customizer, a theme that has options that allows you to edit the title size, a theme that allows you to add your own CSS, or have you created a child theme that you can edit. It's usually good to provide a bit more info. – Tony Djukic Mar 22 '20 at 20:44
  • Thank you Tony. I chose the 'highlight' theme from my webhost. I've done some minor editing in the css files....just not sure how to do this one. – zach Mar 22 '20 at 21:07
  • Edit your question to include the HTML that outputs the title - you can just grab this using the developer tools console in your browser. Most pages use .entry-title or .page-title as the class for the title of pages and posts. So you'd be looking at something like .entry-title, .page-title { font-size:24px; } Obviously you'd use the font size units you pefer and adjust it to what size you want it to be, etc. – Tony Djukic Mar 22 '20 at 21:13

In the CSS you want to set it like this:

     font-size: 24px;

Change the 24px to whatever size actually works for you.

  • Thank you so much for your help Tony. Would this go in the style.css page? I added that example with a very small font size for testing and I'm not seeing stylistic changes. Thanks again. – zach Mar 22 '20 at 22:45
  • Yes it would, but you may need to add more specificity or maybe override some existing CSS - it really all depends on the rest of the code and the existing CSS rules. It's hard for me to tell because I can only see one line. – Tony Djukic Mar 22 '20 at 23:14
  • Thank you Tony! Afer I added your code above in the Additional CSS in the customizer, it worked! You rock Tony! – zach Mar 22 '20 at 23:59
  • You’re very welcome. – Tony Djukic Mar 23 '20 at 0:00
