Font size increase in Groups description

  • sharemarketer


    I have spent the whole weekend almost reading thru posts to simply make the font size in the groups description area readable. it is entirely to small and I am not a computer analyst although I feel like this is insanity for a newbie. I did make a child folder but need someone to simply give me the code lingo to copy and paste and put there. I also was in the editor I have graphene theme and I found bbpress css but any font size i change nothing happens.

    please help me, i’m melting…..

    @sharemarketer site url? hard to guess what’s causing the enlarged description.



    @mercime I hope you get this reply cause I had responded earlier that font size is too small, cannot read barely. thank you for your patience




    this is the original CSS of the group description: (bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress/css/buddypress.css)

    #buddypress div#item-header div#item-meta {
    	font-size: 80%;
    	color: #aaa;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	margin: 15px 0 5px 0;
    	padding-bottom: 10px;

    By default (for security reason), the group description field is filtered and doesn’t accept any html tags.

    You have 2 solutions:
    Only the site admin can create groups, and you can evtl. remove the filter.
    Users are allowed to create groups and in this case, you let the filter active and you modify the CSS.

    Add to your child theme:

    #buddypress div#item-header div#item-meta {
    	font-size: 100% !important;  /*or any other size*/

    Filter : see bp_groups_filter_kses function in bp-groups/bp-groups-filters.php



    @danbp thank you for your help, I am not very computer developer literate. i googled about child theme and can make one but the filter thing I am not clear of. I dont knoe where to find filter or where to adjust. so i will add the child theme change until I hear from you, i am the admin and did not check the box to allow members to make theri own groups . not sure if that has anything to do wiht the filter but if you can explain where or if i need to fool with the filter or if using that above for child theme is sufficient, again thank you
