[Theme : Bueno] Custom Fonts, Translation, Extended Footer (5 posts)

    Hi!

    I have recently purchased the guided transfer from WordPress.com to WordPress.org, and some things changed during the move and I cannot figure out what went wrong.

    1) I had TypeKit, therefore, I lost all of my custom fonts. I solved this problem by downloading the Google Web Fonts plugin and using Helvetica for my posts. However, even if the font I chose for the titles is very thin (Josefin Sans), the font doesn't appear correctly: if I zoom in, I see that the letters are doubled. I did not have that problem with TypeKit... Is it related to Google Web Fonts or an error in coding?

    2) Even if all of my settings are set to French, all of the Bueno widgets show up in English. For example, I had installed the "Bueno Search", which read "Rechercher", but it now reads "Search".

    Unrelated Bueno question : Can I make my extended footer two columns? I would like them both centered and would like the shorter footer to be vertically centered as well. I have searched online and haven't found the info I was looking for. I don't want to just start playing in the footer.php file if I do not know what I am doing.

    A small precision:

    1) The font problem only seems to happen in Safari.

  3. This is a dirty hack since your theme is set to display three columns in the footer... however, here is the solution to center horizontally. Add this to your style.css file at the very bottom on a new line:

    .col-full {
        margin: 0 auto 0 320px;
        width: 940px;
    }

    To center the shorter column vertically, you are going to need to determine where it is calling the height style from. We need to add a margin, but it is written "in-line". So, it's written in the code somewhere.

    Newbie here: what does "dirty hack" mean?

    Thank you very much for the help. I'll look into it further now that I know what to look for. :)

  5. Well, your footer is set for three columns. It makes me wonder if there is an option in your theme to only display two columns. So that you don't have to go in and edit the CSS. Maybe not, though :)

    So, we basically moved everything over to the right. Now, if you ever try to use that third column, the content will be pushed over to the side. But if you never plan on using that third column, then all is good!
