    Default How to increase line spacing in body text

    Hi there,

    I was just wondering how I would go about increasing the line spacing in the post/page body text? I'm finding it a little bit too close together for my site. I would assume that I need to put some code into the custom CSS box? I'm not very code savvy though. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Regards,
    Sieger

    When I change the spacing from the .post .entry in the CSS file, it only changes the spacing in the 1st paragraph of my stickied post on the top of my home page. No other content changes :s Any ideas?

    Oops, sorry meant to put the link. I have since changed it back to 16px though. I changed it to 20px but only made a difference in my first post. If you need me to change it again to troubleshoot then just let me know. http://suppcoupons.com

    I see the change in all your posts.. but you can also try.

    .post p {line-height: 16px}

    I'm trying to change line-height to 20px but when I do it, it only makes the 1st paragraph of my top post 20px. I've changed it to 20px again so you can see what happens. Notice that my top post, the first paragraph is the only paragraph on my whole site that has 20px line spacing. Not sure what to try next. I tried doing the .post p modification but that yielded the same results.

    I don't see any custom css in your header. Don't make the change in the style.css. Make the change in the custom css box..

    Note I should be uploading 3.03 which has a couple of css fixes in it tonight.

    Thanks for the reply Dan; doing it that way makes a lot more sense. However, when I put in ".post p {line-height: 20px}" it took away my background and my custom theme link colours. I re-uploaded the deafult style.css and re-saved my colour scheme to get my background back and links back to normal. I will wait for 3.03 comes out tonight before making any other changes though. Maybe that will do the trick.

    Thank you for your prompt responses! Love Socrates so far.
