Can't Increase Font Size


I’ve been trying to increase the font size on my website and I haven’t been able to get it to work. I tried editing the stylesheet. I am also using a child theme.

Hello there,

I hope you are doing well today.

You can add the new CSS via Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS.
Could you please provide a link to your website so that I can inspect it?

Best Regards,

Hello there,

You can use the following CSS code to change the font size in the body by going to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS and pasting it there.

/*Font Size*/
body {
    font-size: 18px;

Best Regards,

This works nicely, however, only for the main text. It does not affect headers, menu, quote blocks, date, author name, and probably some other elements as well.

Is there a way to increase the font proportionally everywhere?

@AdamBadura It’s five-year-old ticket, there is a low chance someone will reply you from the thread, if you have a problem please start a new ticket with a clear description and I will help you.


Well, I thought it is better to reuse an existing and well-matching topic than to create a new one. But if you prefer a new one, I just made it: How to correctly increase the font size.

I agree with you, and that’s a normal :slight_smile: however from my practice there is a low chance,
