Hey All ...  I am pretty new to WP Foro.

I am trying to figure out how to change my font sizes.  When I go to  Forums ----> Settings -----> Font Sizes , change the values, save the updated values, then go back to my forum, nothing has changed.  This is probably something really stupid, but I really can't figure it out. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance. I am loving this forum software. Seems very well thought out.

Thank you @traces-of-texas,

First of all, you should delete all caches from Dashboard > Forum > Dashboard admin page. If you use some other cache plugins please delete those plugins caches as well. Then press CTRL+F5 (twice) on forum frontend.

Okay, so I found the Caches on the Dashboard Admin Page and flushed it. But when you say "The Forum Frontend"  what, specifically, are you referring to?  And what should happen when I press Ctrl + F5 twice? Because, as far as I can tell, nothing happens.

I apologize for being so dimwitted.

Thanks again.

TOT

Hi TOT,

But when you say "The Forum Frontend"  what, specifically, are you referring to?

I mean the main forum page on the browser.

And what should happen when I press Ctrl + F5 twice? Because, as far as I can tell, nothing happens.

Browser cache doesn't load new changes thus you need to press Ctrl + F5 after you make any changes.

I am at my wit's end. I've flushed cache, resized, hit ctrl + f5 about 1,000 times in the past three days.   Here's a screenshot of my forum, which I am just now trying to build.  What I'd like to do is increase the font sizes on  the topics (I think that's what they are called)  and the descriptions of those topics.  So I'd like to increase the font size of "Current Events in Texas"  and then also the description "All the stuff that happens in the Lone Star State ...."   

Thank you, Sofy, and anybody else who can offer me some help doing this.

Hi @traces-of-texas,

Those are not topics, those are Forums, and the texts below are descriptions. Please put this CSS code in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles > Custom CSS Code textarea. Save it, delete all caches and press that Ctrl+F5 on forum front-end twice:

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap h3.wpforo-forum-title a{font-size:20px !important; line-height: inherit!important;}
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpforo-forum-description{font-size:14px !important; line-height: inherit!important;}

You can change the red marked font-size values.

That worked!  Than you SO much. 

I'm going to be having some more questions as I go along.  Would you like for me to just add them to this thread or start new ones?  Also, I'm using the extended theme.  Is there a diagram that shows what the various components of that theme (topics, forums, descriptions etc...)  are so that, in future questions, I can refer to them using the proper nomenclature? 

Thanks again.
