3.3 HTML editor now uses monospaced font (11 posts)

    After upgrading to 3.3. I find that the HTML New Post Editor uses a (small) monospaced font instead of the one that was used before (Lucida Grande, I think).

    How can I change it to a (larger) non-monospaced typeface?

  2. WP's been using that since 3.2 IIRC.

    You can edit it by making a plugin: http://tech.ipstenu.org/hacks/wordpress-html-editor-font/

    I noticed the change too. For WP 3.2 I changed mine to Verdana with a fix by Justin Tadlock. Now 3.3 has done something to undo the fix, and the monospaced font is back.

    No luck with Ipstenu's plugin. (I tried...fatal error).

    That is a drag, just checked several sites I was using Justin's code on as well, all 1210 children.. and no joy. Hope someone cooks up the code needed to change this ... again.

    You just need to change the hooks in the plugin/function CSS. So add #wp-content-editor-container #content to the mix. (I haven't checked to see how many of the old ids are still valid. I just added the new id to the style.

  6. That's odd, Peter, I'm using it on my 3.3 site and it works just fine.

    For anyone who needs an easy to use summary of how to fix the problem, I wrote a post that gives all the necessary code and how to implement either the "add lines to function file" or "create a plugin" methods (with full credit to Justin Tadlock and ipstenu). Hope it's helpful.

    Thank you, fodden and clnewbill. The HTML editor has been restored to its readable self.

    Ipstenu, I must have installed your plugin incorrectly. I put it in the regular plugins folder.
