In this blog post I’ll show you how to change the size of your blog posts in the minimal mistakes theme.

How to change size of blog posts

  • Go to assets/css/main.scss
  • Edit the font-size attribute of archive__item-title

This is what my assets/css/main.scss looks like.

.archive__item-title {
    position: relative;
    font-size: 30px;

How to add a favicon to minimal mistakes

  • Pick a suitable image
  • Go to https://realfavicongenerator.net/
  • Download the package and extract it to the root directory
  • Copy the html code and add it to _includes/head/custom.html

This is what my _includes/head/custom.html looks like.

<!-- start custom head snippets -->

<!-- insert favicons. use https://realfavicongenerator.net/ -->
<link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="180x180" href="/apple-touch-icon.png">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="32x32" href="/favicon-32x32.png">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="/favicon-16x16.png">
<link rel="manifest" href="/site.webmanifest">
<link rel="mask-icon" href="/safari-pinned-tab.svg" color="#5bbad5">
<meta name="msapplication-TileColor" content="#da532c">
<meta name="theme-color" content="#ffffff">

<!-- end custom head snippets -->
