Help: Twenty Eleven Theme - How to change main body font. (3 posts)

    Hi,
    I just switched to the Twenty Eleven theme and I'd like to change the main body font to something a bit thicker so it's easier to read. I don't know much at all about code, but if someone can tell me where in the editor I can find the place to make the change and suggest some fonts to try, I'd appreciate it.

    Many thanks.

    body, input, textarea {
    	color: #373737;
    	font: 15px "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
    	font-weight: 300;
    	line-height: 1.625;
    }

    Copy it over to your child theme style sheet and edit the value. The 15px defines the size of the fonts

    Cool, I found it in the style.css in the Edit Themes area. I just changed the font weight to 400 and it's much better.

    Many thanks.
