    hello
    new to using WP and figuring my way around the 'canyon' theme we are using.

    anyone know how i can go in and change

    fonts ?
    allowing bold and italics ?
    upper/lower case ? (or allowing for both upper/lower case)

    i know where the codes for the theme are located and have gone in an deleted some sections that were included in this theme but dont know how to change the fonts.

    for instance in the header all the text is in all caps - would like to change it to upper/lower case letters.

    the font that is standard w/ the theme looks very dry and doesn't allow for bolding etc

    thanks!

    If there is no option within the dashboard, you'll have to code it.
    Make sure all CSS modifications are withheld in some Custom CSS functionality, like that provided by Jetpack.

    Andrew - thanks for the reply!

    dont see any option in the dashboard for changing the font - ie when typing up a new page it doesn't give me any 'font' options - and it even gives me the bold and italics option when creating a new page but when it gets posted to the website the font does not appear in either italics or bold.

    i will explore changing the font/css through your jetpack recommendation.

    thank you.

    regards

    If specified through the post editor, the text should appear as stylized -- is it not working for you?

    well when i am creating a new page and type words using bold/text - when the page is published they dont show up as either bold or text. So assuming that i might need to go into the css code and change it for the pages etc - although more then likely it might be well over my head and might just have to keep the dry plain (cheap) looking font that comes w/ the theme.

    regards

    If you're trying to change the post text yourself, i.e. what you type into the post editor and publish to your site, when you specify bold or italic with the buttons it should work. If not, go to the HTML side of the post editor and wrap your desired text around with <i> and </i> (or <em> and </em>), to make that text selection italicized. See if that works.

    If you're trying to change more complicated things like all the post titles, or all the body text on your website -- you should go to your style.css folder and change it from there. Here's what my post titles look like on my blog:

    h2 {
    text-align: left;
    font-size: 2em;
    color: #000;
    font-family: Georgia, Times, serif;
    text-transform: none;
    letter-spacing: -1px;
    line-height: 90%;
    font-weight: bold;
    	}

    Change it from there.

    Hope that helped?
