    I just purchased a membership and I’m trying to upgrade my Celestial-Lite to Celestial Reloaded. I have downloaded the zip files and when I tried to upload them to WordPress, I received the following message:

    Installing the theme…

    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the

    
    
    style.css

    stylesheet.

    Theme install failed.

    I have tried this twice now. What am I doing wrong?

    I just got your email, but generally this means you tried to install the original downloaded file. You will need to unzip it first, then inside that will be the theme zip file you install. In your case, you will install the celestial.zip

    Please note that Celestial Reloaded is not a direct upgrade to Celestial Lite, so it needs to be installed as a separate new theme.

    Thank you. I did that and it works.

    However, is there a way to change the font and/or font size? I was hoping switching to the premium version would give me more flexibility with fonts.

    Fonts are really complicated to code into a theme, so it’s usually best to use a font plugin. These will often give you a lot more control of font family, size, and other attributes than what a theme can give. Only thing you would need to know is what element a font belongs to that you want to change. The style.css has a lot of font styling throughout on various selectors, so when you know what you want to change, you can apply that with the font plugin. So for example, if you want to change the post or page titles, these are h1 and h2 headings, each has a class “entry-title”. So you would do a change like this:

    h1.entry-title {
    font-size: 22px;
    }

    You can of course, add colours etc. The selector is h1, the class is “entry-title” and the font-size is the property (or properties) of the selector and class, then 22px is the value. Fun hey! :cheer:

    Fun??? I’m such a newbie that the thought of adding/altering code is frightening.

    But thanks for the information.

    No worries… here is something to consider before you start doing too much with the theme options, such as colours etc….If you think at any time down the road that you will be making theme file modifications, it’s best to install the child theme that comes with the theme and install that and activate it. This way, when you make changes and modifications, you don’t lose them whenever there are theme updates. Also, if you are changing a style of something such as what was explained above, can be done with the child theme method too.

    However, if you only plan to make changes to styles only (not making modifications to the structure or moving code around), then installing a CSS edit plugin (a plugin that lets you make changes to the styles of the theme without touching the actual theme stylesheet) is a good choice.

    As for support…if there is something specific you need to make changes to but not sure what it is or where to find it in the theme, you are covered by support. The only thing that isn’t covered is if you need detailed tutorials or custom coding done to your theme by Styled Themes.

    So with that being said, you asked about font size..etc. Was there something specific that you wanted to change relating to the font size? If so, probably best to start a new topic in the Celestial Reloaded forum category for the font question, and I will see what I can do to help you out.
