Hello Soho Friends.

How do you get a (slightly) bigger
(bolder, along with font size change)
site-title in the header ?

I have the Neutral Kiss Red Soholaunch template.

Thank you for your kind help.

:)

You need to edit the custom.css file in that template folder; this has all the attributes for font sizes, colours, etc...

Failing that, you could edit the index.html directly, taking out the #tag# and entering the text you'd like to see there.

1) OK.

2) Thank you Dr Jon.

3) I'll try this right now.
(I think I will put this in my signature :lol: )

4) Where on earth is a custom.css file ?

It's in the same folder as your template.

The one and only thing
I was able to "find" is my "Settings",
in the "template Manager"...

And there's no such a file/folder there...

:hmm:

You cannot edit it via SH - you have to download it to your PC and edit it there. It will be here: /public_html/sohoadmin/program/modules/site_templates/pages/template_name or similar...

Unless you understand how to edit a css file, it's not something I would recommend you 'mess' with; but give it a try and make sure you make a backup of the original first.

Thank you so much for indicating the path I have to follow, dear Dr Jon.

I'll do this only when more confident about my capacities.

1. Download this file to your computer: sohoadmin/program/modules/site_templates/pages/NEUTRAL-KISS-red/index.html
2. Make a copy and put it in a safe place just in case.
3. Edit it with an HTML editor. You will see this block of code right on the top:
.pound_logo {
font-size: 25px;
padding: 20px 0px 0px 20px;
letter-spacing: 0px;
}
4. Change this style the way you want it. You can change the "font-size", but then you have to adjust the "padding" to compensate. You may also add "font-weight: bold;"
5. Upload the file back.
6. Repeat Steps 1 thru 5 if necessary.

Thank you very much, dear Lwyau.
(May I add this is the Lwyau I like ?)

;)

I won't try this right now
(contrarily to what I usually say),
I'll have to take quite some breath first...

There's much (at my low level) to do here,
I'll have to feel more confident in my capacity...

I did the reply to make a point: This is something that does relatively little harm EVEN if you don't know anything about HTML and happen to mess it up, since I did mention to keep the original file in a safe place.

Removing "Step 3 from checkout" is a totally different deal. If you don't know PHP well enough, there is no point for me to have a discussion about it.

Thank you Lwyau for this precious information.

:)

And you're right, I don't know PHP well.
