Font Formatting (2 posts)

    Hello, I can't for the life of me figure out how to edit the fonts on my blog.

    My blog designer (who just went on holiday so I can't ask her) said everything is located in base.css, but I can't see it anywhere, and any changes I make to base.css don't seem to affect the site at all. For instance, in order to change the text in the main blog entries, I changed:

    /* Document Body */
    body, input, textarea { font-family: "Arial Narrow", Arial, Helvetica;

    AND:

    /* Font Styles */
    .serif { font-family: "Arial Narrow", Arial, Helvetica; }
    .sans-serif { font-family: "Arial Narrow", Arial, Helvetica; }

    TO: "Arial", Helvetica, Verdana;

    but nothing on my blog changed. I even cleared the cache and tried to reload it.

    I'm also trying to change smaller things like in sidebar.php:

    <div class="newslettersub">Your information will not be shared with any third party</div>

    ...but I simply can't find the class "newslettersub" anywhere.

    I've been going at this for hours, and nothing seems to work.

    Forgive me for being such an idiot, but can someone please help?

    Thanks much!! =)

    If you could provide a link I may be able to help you. One thing you may want to look into is using the "Web Developer" firefox addon

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/60

    If you enable that tool bar you can go to "css" and select "View Style Information". Then when you click an element it will tell you want styles affect that element and what files they are in. You can also use the "CSS"->"Edit CSS" option to edit it live and make sure your changes are being applied. It may be a case of your browser caching the stylesheet, or a wordpress caching plugin caching the content. Try clearing your browser cache to see if that helps.
