    Does anyone know why a WordPress website would all of a sudden be displaying gigantic letters?

    I occasionally help my neighbor with the writing on his site, and he contacted me today because all of a sudden, his website's formatting is appearing with too large letters. They are overlapping and the formatting is all messed up.  No one made any changes to prompt this.  There is an update that needs to be installed.  Does anyone know if installing it might help, or could it make it worse?  Would anyone know why this might have happened? I don't want to make it worse by "helping" him!

    I think the problem of your neighbour can be solved by installing TinymceAdvanced wordpress plugin. Go to plug in menu of your wordpress site and click of add plug in. Search for tinymce advanced plugin and install the plug in from to enjoy the advanced features of smallesst, small, big, bigger or biggest fonts of your choice.

      Thank you.  I will check that out.  Will I have to hand change all the fonts or do you think they might just restore themselves to original template fonts?

    adding a plug-in isn't going to solve the problem - it's just going to give you more styling options for your text.
    A pending update is also not going to disturb the font size.

    If the font size has increased everywhere - as in on any site visited on the internet, then it's a browser setting.

    If the font size has increased ONLY on your friends site, then it is very likely an alteration was made to the style sheet.

    If that is the case, reload the stylesheet, and all should go back to normal.

    For what it's worth, I've had almost 30 WordPress sites of my own, developed close to 100, and currently manage about 40.

      Thank you, Tony!  I appreciate your knowledge.  I will re-read this post and pass along the info!  It seems this may really help.  I may be back to clarify!  Thank you so much.
