    Hi there, I'm using this theme: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/amdhas

    and even if it shows many options to customize, I'd like to know this things:

    1 - Is it possible to add other fonts for text and title? And how?

    2 - Is it possible to change the background color of the baby-blue box that shows number of comments?

    3 - In my site, I've changed some text colors; but in the footer tag cloud I find two text color! I don't know why!

    Can you give an help, please?

    Thank you so much!

    1) It is possible, however you need to create a child theme of your current and therefore use a child CSS file.

    1, 2 & 3) Once you have created this child CSS file, let us know so we can help you further.

    In your child CSS file, add this CSS
    To change fonts in text (I assume paragraphs), but let us know which font it is,

    p, .entry{
     font-family: yourFontChoice, yourSecondFontChoice, ThirdEtc;
    }

    To change fonts in titles,

    .title-excerpt, .title-single{
     font-family: yourFontChoice, yourSecondFontChoice, ThirdEtc;
    }

    To change background colour of that number of comments box, change the #41B7D1 value to your colour (hexadecimal format)

    .postcomments {
     background-color: #41B7D1;
    }

    3)

    In my site, I've changed some text colors; but in the footer tag cloud I find two text color! I don't know why

    Can you explain what exactly you changed and where, and what you want the footer to change to.

    Hi Andrew, for paragraphs text font, I'd like to try Segoe UI or Constantia, i'm not sure, wanna see how it shows; for titles font, ChunkFive Normale.

    For the footer problem, don't mind, my english is bad and I can't explain what I mean ;)

    Those fonts are not covered by default in browsers, so you'll need to use CSS @font-face.
    There's a generator here
    http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface/generator
    Where you upload your font files (.ttf extension) and it generates the CSS for your font, but you still need to make sure it uses the correct directories.

    Therefore you should make a directory in your theme for the fonts, then place the fonts inside that directory. You need permission to use your fonts and you need the actual font .ttf files (you can download from fontsquirrel.com).

    Then you'll have to make the fontface code yourself, it's CSS and have a look at this website for guidance.
