    I have changed things around in my stylesheet, buy can't seem to change the font for the posts I make. I do not want them in Times New Roman - I want them in Veranda -

    Where do I go to make the edit - I have looked over everything again and again and cannot figure it out

    Thanks!

    A link to your website would be helpful so we can see your stylesheet and advise accordingly. :)

    Oh - sorry - I am so, so tired

    AND I replaced the header - which is too big, but I did it in the size it said, and it now doesn't link back to the first page either - any suggestions???

    Beautytip, the answer to your second question is here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Designing_Headers#Making_the_Whole_Header_Clickable

    * Change from <div id="header"> to:

    <div id="header" onclick="location.href='http://siteaddress/';" style="cursor: pointer;">

    That is, you have to edit the header.php file using the theme editor.

    Your font problem is occurring in the templates itself.

    You have hard-coded it like so:
    <div class="entry">
    <font face="Times New Roman" size="3">

    Open index.php, single.php (probably all of them) and check hard-coded input where you have "entry" and delete. Save.

    Ok - I got the header thing figured out and fixed - but I still cannot find where to change the font???

    I do not understand what hard coded is, and I can't even find <font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> anywhere in the editor to delet it.

    UGH!

    If you use your View/Source in your web browser toolbar, you see your page in html form. As you scroll down a bit you'll see the following:

    <div class="entry">
    <p> <font face="Times New Roman" size="3">Besides keeping the skin extremely clean, try these at-home methods to get rid of this pesky problem.</font> </p>

    <ul type="disc">

    Perhaps its not in your templates at all but rather in your writing of posts.

    Open your post titled: Bye Bye Blackbirds and check the content you wrote. If the inserted font-face isn't in your body of your article, then its definitely in your template.

    Hard-coded = code or html markup you hand coded into your templates or post yourself.
