    I use the Scrappy theme by Caroline Moore on my site. http://singedwingangelspad.com. Today I ran an update that my dashboard said it required and now my whole page is weird. The entire template is gone.. help

    OK it is back now but it was saying some kind of code error in line 47 every time I opened it. I hope it stays fixed cause I really love this theme, now if I could only figure out how to change the font on it.

    I just updated it and now my site is a mess! I had removed the meta box, and now it is there again (but not in my widgets, so how is that?)

    I also have "archives" but had coded that out. It took me forever to get it the way I wanted it to look! Now I am back to Googling how to remove things again.

    The words are also kind of fuzzy.

    Please check in Caroline and help!

    Southernangel, glad whatever that was resolved itself.

    I recommend making any changes in a child theme so they don't get overwritten by future theme updates. You'd need to use CSS. I can't tell you exactly what code to use since I don't know what you mean by "change the font" (Change it across the theme, or in a specific place? Do you mean the font style or font size or... ? There are lots of different elements you could play with.)

    Something general like this might work as a starting point:

    body {
       font-family: Arial, Helvetica;
       font-size: 14px;

    The font that is set for the posts is so small, and I have NO clue about CSS. I cannot make it any bigger so what I am doing is writing my posts through Windows Live Writer and then uploading them to my site. That is the only way I can alter the font on the posts.

    Strange, because in my browser, the font on your site is much smaller than the default. But if you've found a method that works for you that's great!
