Hi! I have Hello Trending. I’m trying to increase the font size for the body text from 14px to 16px. I tried changing it in the style sheet but it doesn’t change. Am I doing it wrong?

Sometimes changes made to the style sheet will not push the front of the site if you have a hosting cache, or it can also be your browser cache. What is a link to your site? If you prefer to keep that private, you can email it to me at

Once I can preview it, will be able to tell if it is not caching to the front of the site, or if the change was not in the correct spot.

I tried clearing my caches.

There is one last spot to change. On line 31 in your style sheet change if from 1.4 to 1.6 so it looks like the below.

body > div {
font-size: 1.6rem;

After you do that be sure to clear your caches. If that does not work, it looks like you are using the Thrive editor and that editor is trying to adjust the body font as well. So that would be the next spot to check. Let me know if you have any issues.

Well that didn’t work either. Do you know a fix for the Thrive editor? Otherwise it’s not that big of a deal. I just heard that increasing to 16 font or larger helps with SEO and ad revenue.

I’m not familiar enough with that editor to point you in the right spot. When I view the site, it doesn’t look like the code above took and is in the style sheet. If you would like to shoot over your login I can hop on and take a look. The email is
