    Well, it’s finally happened. I’ve moved all my tutorials about web technologies from my personal blog to a new blog devoted entirely to tech. Here it is:

    Up Past Midnight

    WordPress, Graphene, Graphene Child Theme, plus only five plugins:

    Akismet

    Crayon Syntax Highlighter

    Simple Lightbox

    Table of Contents Plus

    WP PHP Widget

    I’ve got some links to clean up and some 301 redirects to write on my personal blog, but it’s 95% done.

    I just saw your post on the new site.

    Wow, well designed. Just a suggestion; I would increase the font size or add a font re-sizing tool. I had small font once here: http://sanuja.com/blog/ and few people complaint that it is too small for them to read+discourages them from reading. So I increased the front size from Graphene Theme Options.

    Just got me thinking, is there a CSS trick to make fonts bigger only on Graphene content but not on wediget areas like “Recent Posts”?

    The font does actually scale in Firefox using “Ctrl +” or “Ctrl -“, but I’m not sure about other browsers. I have used a font-resizing tool before, but I’m trying to keep the number of plugins to a minimum. But you’re right, it seems small. I’m using Ubuntu, and it has a smaller x-height that other fonts. I’ve bumped it up a single pixel from the theme default (12px to 13px) and increased the line height from 18px to 20px and it seems to have opened it up quite a bit, at least on my monitor.

    This should work:

    #content-main {font-size: 40px;}

    At least it does in Firebug. You’ll still need to add rules for headings

    Thanks for taking a look. Cheers!

    Thank Ken. I will look into the content-main edit you described. I think a lot of people, including myself, don’t know about Ctrl+/- to change the font size. Thanks for the tip too.

    It’s coming. I just need to take the time to figure out how to monetize it.
