How to make the twentyfourteen site-title bigger, at first its very small font comparatively to the rest of the text on the site. Even though its given a weight of h1 (heading 1), in my opinion it should be bigger. That way it aesthetically correct for a title.

I’m sure there are a million ways to do this more correctly;

First make a child theme as described here:

http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

Or in the beginning of making EXCERPTS in stead of FULL CONTENT on HOMEPAGE for the same them “TWENTYFOURTEEN”

# cd /var/www/wp-content/themes

Im assuming your child theme is made and ill assume you called it “twentyfourteen-child” (even though you can call it whatever you wnat)

# cd twentyfourteen-chilf

# cp ../twentyfourteen/header.php .

# vi header.php

CHANGE THE LINE THAT SAYS:

After about 28 the site-title gets too big, the header bar doesnt adjust with this, thats why i said their probably is a better way (if you know it, let me know via comment)

  1. Thanks for the help! I used your guide, but edited the stylesheet.css instead of the header. This avoided the site title color changing.

    .site-title {
    float: left;
    font-size: 28px;
    font-weight: 700;
    line-height: 48px;
    margin: 0;
