    Hi people! First of all sorry for ask for this, I'm no a CCS expert and maybe I'm asking for something easy but I couldn't solve it by myself... Thank you in advance

    I'm developping a new design with Atahualpa theme, now you can find my problem at http://rebeautys.com.s168-197.furanet.com/2014/05/16/hola-mundo/ (I'm developing it now).

    The thing is in the comment box there is two phrases I cannot change into Georgia font (the ones you tick on if you want subscribe to comments), as the rest of the blog, and I can't find how to do it...

    Could someone give me some ideas please?

    Thank you! :)

    Hi Maria

    I've taken a look at your site. You have some nice design elements in it.

    It looks like there may be some inline styles that are affecting your fonts. But this code seems to do the trick when I tried it in Chrome's Inspect element option.

    #respond > form p > label {
    font-family: georgia,tahoma,arial,sans-serif;
    }

    The label item has its own font-family declared. To find the css code that over-rides this you need to work backwards to something you can put into your style.css file.

    If you look at the page html, label in wrapped in a p tag which is part of a form. The form comes inside the respond div. so we end up with this; #respond > form p > label.

    Don't forget that any edits to the style file will be lost once your theme is updated so it's best to make a child theme and make the alterations there.

    Hope this helps

    Seems useful but... where should I place this label item? I guess in any css file, right? I can't find where this part of code is... That's the thing, I guess ;)

    Hi Maria

    Yes that's right, all of the code I suggested (in the grey box) will need to go into a style.css file. You could put it in there to start but it is not the best place because.... when the original theme is updated all your changes will be lost.

    It would be best to set up a child theme and place the code in its style.css file. Do you know how to do that?

    There is quite a bit to learn at first but once done it becomes quite easy.

    If you've not done that before you will need to do some research or find help: there is a lot written about child themes on the internet. Some of it is well explained and is useful for someone starting out.

    It takes time to learn it but I hope this helps a little
    All the best

    Yes it helps! Thank you ;)

    The only thing is to do it as a child theme I have to restart almost from the beginning... but if it's better done this way (I don't want a theme actualization to mess with all my work) I'll do my best to learn! :) Wish me luck ;)

    I edit: Seems Atahualpa theme doesn't support child themes properly, as it uses different folders to place certain items... :( Let's see how I solve this :(

    Thank you again anyway :)

    Hi Maria

    Thanks for your edit explaining the problem. You seem really determined to overcome this. Luckily there is another way you could go.

    I did a little research for you and found there is a plugin called 'Simple Custom CSS'

    I installed it to a testing site on my laptop and was able to add css code into it and was able to achieve changes to the look of the site while using the same theme as you.

    The plugin is in the WP Repository at this address: http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css/

    So once you have installed it, go into plugins and select the plugins 'settings'. That will give you a screen where you can type in the code I suggested.

    It's had a lot of downloads and the few reviews it's received are all quite positive.

    I hope this solves your problem.
    Take care

    You do not need to create a child theme nor do you need to use a CSS plugin. Atahualpa, like many themes, has an option to add custom CSS.

    Go to Appearance > Atahualpa Theme Options > Various Content Items > Add HTML/CSS Inserts, and add your CSS to the CSS Inserts field. CSS that is added to that field will not be lost when the theme gets upgraded.
