I've spent hours today trying to do the above mentioned, getting rid of the font/size items. I downloaded firebug and have seen a lot of source code. I'm having trouble here because i'm not seeing the code that's being discussed here. I have Joomla 1.6 and using beez5 but I don't see where I access the index/php file, even when I'm at the template manager folder Beez5. Above you have guided other through the steps, but what about baby steps? Can you walk me through? I'm trying to stick with Joomla and go through the growing pains but I need to get back on line.
The reason you are confused is because this post talks about two different changes for the same issue. The first is accomplished in the file manager on my hosting account. You may be able to do the same thing using JoomlaXplorer or some similar component on the backside of your installation.
The second is a deletion of code on the admin side of the Beez5 template.
It has been so long since I hacked my website that I want to reload 1.6 and start from "scratch" Doing that now. Once I again have the font size code in place, I will drop you some steps to remove or modify - your choice.
By the way, since I screw up most of my Joomla modifications the first, second and sometimes third try, I spent another $10 to get a domain to test my changes. That way, the real websites remain untouched until I am ready to do it for "real". I work in Firefox and check IE to make sure it matches. I use ColorZilla to play with colors. When I am looking for specific code based on a firebug note, I use the "find" option in Edit tab on the tool bar.
Not sure if all this makes any sense, but don't worry. I only understand about 1/2 of what other Joomla hackers tell me.
