    Hello. I’d like to increase the text font size in my widgets on the front page. I have a plain text widget and a “Recent Posts” widget, but the font is too small. How might I increase these types of text and WordPress built in widgets?

    Really depends on if you want the font size to be bigger for everything else or just those specific widgets?


    I don’t want to change the font size for the whole website is fell swoop. I just want to be able to change font size for the widgets. Specifically, the ones in the Bottom widget area. You can see the website and how small the font size is at http://meetingtoolsandjewels.com

    I’m guessing you are using a third party Recent Posts widget…I looked at your source code and this plugin (widget) has a font size of 12px. So this is making your widget text small. In fact, this plugin loads it’s styles into your content area (which is actually a bad thing to do). The style in question is this:

    .rpwe-summary {
    font-size: 12px;

    If you want to make the text bigger in any widget in the “Bottom” area, then you would need to add some css to target the bottom container and increase the font-size (I recommend by percentage, something like this:

    #bottom-wrapper {font-size: 110%;}

    But you still have the issue with the plugin you are using for the recent posts. 12px is a fixed size and won’t change unless you override that one.


    Thanks. Changing it to 120% made it look perfect for me. Thanks again.
