How do I change the font of my links? (6 posts)

    I am struggling to change the font displayed on my blog (life/style/flash.) as page/date/author links and also as widget titles.

    It's a capitalised serif font in a pale grey - I'd rather have a modern sans serif to match the rest of my blog.

    Any ideas how I go about changing it?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure how you are inputting the font changes you've done so far.... I see extra stylesheets, and inline css in the header

    Applying the desired font to .entry-meta a and .widget-title should do it

    The only thing I've done so far is to go into the theme options and select 'modern' as my desired font family. It's changed all to sans serif besides the ones mentioned, which I really don't think are modern!

    Thanks for fast response but not too sure where to go with this...not very html literate!

    Ah sorry! I wonder why the font wouldn't carry throughout....

    I see you have a child theme active, did you make that at all? Or is that part of your theme as well?

    In your style.css I would think adding:

    .entry-meta a, .widget-title {
         font-family: "HelveticaNeue-Light", "Helvetica Neue Light", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, "Lucida Grande", sans-serif;
         font-weight: 300;
    }

    would match up what you are looking for

    I used the One-Click Child Theme plug-in - like I say I don't really know html!

    Where do I add this bit?

    I've also already tried...

    .widget-title {
        color: #a0a0a0;
        font-family: "HelveticaNeue-Light", "Helvetica Neue Light", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, "Lucida Grande", sans-serif;
        font-size: 13px;
        font-weight: bold;
    }

    ..without success!

    (Original was without font-family: "HelveticaNeue-Light", "Helvetica Neue Light", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, "Lucida Grande", sans-serif;)
