[resolved] Italics in posts (17 posts)

    Hello Caroline

    Outstanding work on this clear and beautiful theme. Love it. The only issue that I am finding is that whenever I want to use italics in my posts, it turns those specific words (usually titles of films or books) into uppercase and not italics. Is there a way to resolve this?

    Your time and help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mitch

    Hi Mitch, can you link the webpage with this issue and point out which words are affected? Could you also try deactivating all plugins to explore whether any could be responsible?

    Sure thing thanks Andrew. The link is here. See the paragraphs at the bottom, or any of the film titles. I will deactivate plugins now and see.

    I think it may be purposely coded into the theme.
    Do you have a section in your dashboard named, "Custom CSS" or "Edit CSS"?

    Yes I do. It is under the heading 'Appearance'. It says 'Edit CSS'. Is that the one?

    Yeah, in that section can you add this code:

    i {
     text-transform: initial;
    }

    Do you also have an issue with its font size difference?

    Wow. Genius. That definitely worked, but yes, the font is now smaller. How odd.

    lol thx

    Amend that code to this:

    i {
     text-transform: initial;
     font-size: 1em;
    }

    One last thing Andrew, the posts are all fine now, but the pages still do not work with the italics. Is there an easy fix for that too?

    I think so, can you link a webpage with the issue?

    This page should have italics in the titles of each film. It still has the uppercasing issue.

    Try amending the code to this:

    dfn,
    cite,
    em,
    i {
     text-transform: initial;
     font-size: 1em;
    }

    That removes the uppercase issue, but does not italicise the words. Though the italics are still working on the posts, which is outstanding!

    Strange, that's definitely not intentional. Must have been a typo. I will fix this in the next release!

    Try:

    dfn, cite, em, i {
      font-size: inherit;
      font-style: italic;
      text-transform: none;
    }

    You are both amazing. Thanks for the help, and if you are ever in Australia, then I will definitely buy you a beer.
