Navigation Font - Font Size

Post by Kiwicomedy » Wed Oct 28, 2020 11:03 pm

Hi

Brand new user, working on existing site for a client.

I'm trying to change the font size of the nav menu.
In the template>>Typography, I change the font and weight of the Navigation Font - works fine.
But the font size doesn't change at all.

What am I missing?

Objective: Client wants the Nav Menu bigger.

Which Template are you using ?

Can you provide screenshots of the settings screens?
In the template>>Typography, I change the font and weight of the Navigation Font - works fine.
This doesn't suggest you changed the font size (I read the above as changing the font-family and font-weight but not font-size. (Maybe it's just the way you wrote the question, but it's not obvious what you meant).

If you did change the font size, then it may be just a caching issue - clear the cache for your browser, and joomla. Test in another browser.

Suggest contacting the maker of the template if the cache-clearing doesn't seem to work. Do you know if you're using third party caching (something like a CDN which may cache static content, and may not refresh new changes (like a change of font style) immediately).

Hi - Sorry, possibly I was unclear.

Yes, I changed font-family and font-weight, which both produce immediate results, but changing font-size produces no change.

Does the fact that font-family and font-weight changes DO update instantly, imply that caching isn't the issue?


Screenshot attached.

Also...

Here's the response from the template developer... Does that make sense to anyone?



"We defined font for details parts of template, you just change font for other part, not only Navigation Font."

Hi there,

You can chage the font size in every part you want... via custom code. Try this way.

If I'm correct in the template(Lt_charity), you can add this custom CSS code:

Code: Select all

.sp-megamenu-parent > li > a { font-size: 14px; }
Hope this helps!.
