[resolved] Custom Font Coding for WPZOOM Meeta Theme (5 posts)

    Greetings wordpress. I'm looking to stylize my navigation links by using a custom font for the navigation text. I researched a few ways to add custom fonts and came across the all-in-one Cufons plugin and followed the steps provided by this website -http://lizatom.com/wordpress-plugin/all-in-one-cufon/

    Unfortunately, I've hit a road block. I'm currently using the WPZOOM Meeta Theme and the part of the css code that edits the navigation text is:

    .dropdown a {
    padding: 8px 60px;
    margin:0 5px 0 0;
    text-decoration:underline;
    line-height:1.5;
    font-size: 30px;
    color: ##cccccc;
    display:block;

    Where exactly in my css editor do I place the cufon code in order to change the text for my navigation links and what exactly will the code look like? I've tried placing the code that lizatom.com provided, in a few different areas, but I've been unsuccessful in getting the text to change, simply because I'm pretty new at the css editor and coding language in general.

    Here is my website - http://www.thesiegesound.com

    Here is a print screen of what I want the navigation links to look like, once I've properly imported the code -http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a388/are3as/the_seige_website.jpg

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    You ought to either use a Child Theme and work on that stylesheet, or use a Custom CSS plugin to enter your CSS.

    If you make changes to the theme's original files and you update the theme, your changes will be lost.

    Yes, I'm familiar with child themes, it's just that my website is already pretty basic, so using a child theme for as little as a custom font change seems more work than its worth.

    which of the recommended custom css plugins would you suggest? I have an updated version of wordpress and there seems to be a few that would work.

    I'm sorry, I don't know what happened to that Custom CSS link I used in my previous post.
    Here's what I recommend
