This ought to be really simple -- all I want to do is increase the font size of the textfields in the standard node editing form (node/123/edit). This should be a trivial tweak of a stylesheet, and I've just spent the last hour adding different bits of css to my standard theme style sheet, with no effect. Nothing is affecting the style of the fields and I can't even see (via browser Inspect Element) what stylesheet is setting the font size.

Has this changed in Drupal 7? I'm clearly missing something; can anyone offer advice?

  • What theme are you using for the admin area? Is it the same as for your front end theme? Feb 23, 2012 at 1:47
  • Make sure to clear your cache after every change to the css.

Arggh -- finally found it. I'm running a modified version version of Bartik for my site theme, and Seven came along as the admin/overlay theme. I can put changes into /themes/seven/style.css, and they work. It all makes sense now, I guess. Thanks for the pointers.

  • Just pay mind to the fact that when you upgrade Drupal, since you modified a core file, it could get overwritten! You may want to make a subtheme of Seven and drop it in your sites/all/themes folder. Hopefully your modified version of Bartik is also in your own themes folder as that is a core theme also.

  • Yup. That's just what I've done.
