Font Size
Hi all!

For years I wanted to have my own Gossamer Threads links directory. After buying my new webspace, the first thing I did was setting up Gossamer. I'm a beginner at CGI, but setting up was easier than I thought. I'm running the site in beta mode at the moment to see whether there are problems, but I have one tiny problem with the font sizes.

When I browse through the categories and links, the explanation to the links is way to large. Like 10 pixels or something. I want it smaller, but I cannot find the appropiate tag for this. Even more confusing (at least to me) - when I go to the New page or search for a link, the font size is smaller. Could someone point me in the right direction?

Probably a stupid beginners question;-) But I would be thankful anyway!

are you using the links.css file? if so, that is the place to start

More specifically, look for these CSS items in the stylesheet. This piece of code is from site_html_templates.pl, and determines what the links look like:

# Then we print out the name linked, new if it's new, and popular if its popular.
$output .= qq|<dl><dt><strong><a class="link" href="$url">$category_name</a></strong> <small class="numlinks">($numlinks)</small> |;
$output .= qq|<small><sup class="new">new</sup></small>| if (&days_old($mod) < $db_new_cutoff);
$output .= qq|</dt>|;
$output .= qq|<dd><span class="descript">$description </span></dd>| if (!($description =~ /^[\s\n]*$/));
$output .= qq|</dl>|;

Thanks! I was using my own CSS file, but looking into the one that's in the ZIP file I realize, there are a lot more options. So I'll work with the CSS a bit. Anyway, the descriptions look right for the moment;-)
