          • Hi Richie,
            I have another question for you.
            I would like to change the font size of the headers to make them same size. Should I do that from the file manager in cPanel or I just go to Appearance, Editor and do it?

            Thanks

          • try use the theme option->custom css for any added css, in your case.

            #siteinfo h1,#siteinfo div { font-size:20px; }

            edit the 20px to your own size.

  3. Hello Richie
    I’ve been using your site for some time and I am very pleased with it. Some time ago I started using the wpml plug-in to provide articles in two languages. However, when I switch from English to Spanish I lose all the category and page colours. I searched your previous discussion threads and found someone who had a similar problem. However, they only wanted to change the default colour. Is it possible to replicate the category colours in the second language?
    Kind regards
