Many readers of Currents have been kind enough to compliment the overall design of the blog. The design does meld functionality with style nicely for the most part. But one thing that hasn’t transitioned well since the switch to WordPress is the title.
No, I don’t want to change the actual name of the blog (again). I like the name Currents.
But the title is small, around 16 pt, and not particularly noticeable. I’d like to change it to something like Arial Black, 24 pt, possibly in fire truck red (but more likely remaining black), adapting the text height to ensure it the top of the new bigger title doesn’t get cut off. While I’m at it, I will also need some advice on how to adapt my sub-head if necessary. I need to know how to change the WordPress theme code for my title so I can go in and make the changes.
The first WordPress guru who can give me a step-by-step code edit process that works for editing my blog title will win the Currents Title Change Contest (yeah, well, it is what it is). Leave your code-altering suggestion in the comment for this post. If you can instruct me in how to make this change, I will donate $10 to a charity of your choice through GiveMeaning.
So… win ten bucks in karma, be recognized as a WordPress guru who likes to help hapless un-techie people. Thanks in advance for your help, y’all.
