How do I change default post font size?


I'm trying to make the default post and page paragraph font bigger. I've looked through all the settings and can't seem to find a place to do this. Am I just missing it? Do I need to do so in appearance >editor under a specific template or stylesheet? If so, which one and how?

Thanks and hope that you are having a great holiday season!

    Hi Brian-

    Thanks for your response! I'm not familiar with CSS, and actually haven't made the change because I've been trying to read up. On the immediate question it would be helpful to know which file to look it to make the change, and in general would appreciate your recommendation of the best resources on CSS.

    @gatherwell, I'm still learning myself. Two great resources are:
    1. Free training classes on html, CSS, JavaScript, etc.
    2. Chris Coyier has a video-podcast called CSS-tricks. More specifically, episodes 71, 72, and 73 are a three part series where he designs a site from scratch in PhotoShop (I use gimp instead), then converts that to html and css, and finally converts that to a WordPress theme.

    Hope that helps.

    Jeremy provided some good resources.

    My favorite place to learn some basic web development would be Team Treehouse. They have a bunch of fantastic resources.

    Changing the font size would be as simple as finding the ID or Class that contains the text area you're looking to change and writing a style along the lines of the following:

    .some-class { font-size: 48px; }

    I hope that helps.
