You don't use syntax.  You switch the toggle via the admin screen.

Doh!

Ok, I'm stupid..

But another question, The side bar is formated using a stylesheet, which is generated by cpshop, can I change the fonts/colors of this somewhere?

Take a look at my site and you'll see why I want to change the colors.

Cheers

The sidebar is tagged with the "smallsidebartext" class.  Just add css to your template referring to that class, and you should be fine.

Ah, could you shed some light on how you get this to actually work. I tried adding

.smallsidebartext {
     font-family: "comic sans ms", tahoma, arial, sans-serif;
     font-size: 12px;
}

in the CSS Override section of admin. It doesn't make any difference. The sidebar text is still tiny, tiny, tiny. The font is correct, but the size is way off. I've also tried changing the actual CSS in cppage.lib, but that didn't effect the size. either. What and where is overriding the sidebar font size

OK, I guess i need to register so I can edit my posts when needed. I'll get to that.

Regarding the above post, I DO also have the <style></style> tags around the css. Quick copy and paste left that off.

What you put in to the css override text box depends on what you want to do , I just wanted to make the links a different color so that they show up better on my menu. so I have the following....

<style type="text/css">
.smallsidebartext A:link {color: #003333}
.smallsidebartext A:visited {}
.smallsidebartext A:active {color: #ffffff}
.smallsidebartext A:hover {color: #ffffff}
</style>

I'm keeping the size the smae but if you wanted to change the size you could add a
.smallsidebartext { font-family: "comic sans ms", tahoma, arial, sans-serif;
    font-size: 12px;
}

line in there too, should work.
Hope that help.

That's the thing, it should work, but it doesn't. Well, it sort of does. It does change the font face, but it does NOT change the font size. I'm not really stupid , I do know tis stuff quite well, but this is driving me crazy.

<style type="text/css">
.smallsidebartext {
    font-family: "comic sans ms", tahoma, arial, sans-serif;
    font-size: 12px;
}
</style>

Does not change the font size.

Did you want the font-size to be 12px or 12pt?

I'm looking at it now -- it doesn't look too tiny.  It looks only slightly smaller than your breadcrumbs, and ony then because you're using Comic Sans MS.  But if you want it a lot bigger, you might try changing the style to 12pt instead.

Damn, I hate when you're right.  I don't normally use pt or px, they both have their flaws, I usually use percentages, which is how the sytle sheet for this site is made up.

But since you have the body set at 10 pt or px, I forget which, my percentages were'nt working as they should, as you probably saw from the extremelly tiny text up at the top of the page. It shouldn't be that small, but between the embedded css and my external sheet, something is really goofing it up. You can see how it should be at this page http://www.brattytees.com/ when there's not 2 style sheets fighting with each other.

Hey, I just found it! Further down the style sheet where you have tr,td,table,etc set to 11px I missed yesterday. Took that out and that cleaned everything up. Still would like the embedded css taken out and put into an external file. I'll volunteer to send you the file, about a minutes worth of work.
