Force Font (4 posts)

    I'm using the Canvas theme from Woo if it matters...

    How can I force a specific font to be displayed in my posts on our blog regardless of the font style that may have been copy/pasted into the wysiwyg editor?

    Thanks!

    Fonts are generally controlled by the CSS code -- but you'd best contact Woo for support of their commercial theme.

    EDIT - you may be able to do that using the "important!" in the CSS code. But if you are copy/pasting into the editor -- just use plain text only -- formatting from Word (or something like that) is only likely to cause problems...

    Unfortunately Woo support has been lame since they ditched their forum so I'm avoiding them. I've got a child theme setup on theirs anyways. I've tried "Important!" but I'm not sure where I need to use it to override all the others by the theme or whatever is input into the wysiwyg? I've tried adding the important command to the child themes style.css for entry text but it was a no-go.

    I personally use the plain text only option but my staff etc keep doing copy/paste from emails etc as it works fine in their blogs. They have something setup that over-rides like I'm looking for. I agree completely that it's not optimal but I find it best if I can get my blog just to match what theirs does and be done with it.

    Thank you for your help though. I appreciate it and hopefully there are other suggestions as to how to do this exactly.

    Thanks!

    Ah gotcha -- certainly a challenge to get other people on board about stuff like that :).

    I've tried adding the important command to the child themes style.css for entry text but it was a no-go.

    That's basically what I, too, would expect to work.

    But that theme may have something unusual in its set-up -- unfortunate that Woo is not supporting their themes...they certainly should be.

    If you can post a link to your site, I can look at the specifics -- it's hard to be theoretical about CSS or code in general.

    Or perhaps, as you say, someone else will happen along and have a better idea.
