want to keep the same font type, why can't I?? (21 posts)

    Ok,

    I've been reviewing this issue at the forums and looking at the responses and then applying the responses to my issue. But the problem is it's still a problem.

    check out: http://seminars.cg6.com/events/
    and then check out: http://seminars.cg6.com/events/co/

    I want the font type found on /events/ to remain the same on /events/co/

    I can't seem to figure out why it's different. I look at the CSS, it tells me that its the same as /events/ but clearly it isn't.

    I put the page of /events/co/ on word, re-word it and re-paste it back to the page dashboard. Still it's the same issue. There is a slight modification where it is better than before. But not the exact font I want.

    The font you see on /events/ is the font I want to use on all comments, edits and pages added in wordpress. Except for the header panel. Which can stay as is.

    Please help me, I am confused.

    Thank You.

    and re-paste it back

    Don't do it.
    And do NOT copy/paste from other sources into the wysiwyg (visual) editor.

    I don't get you.

    Isn't re-paste copy & paste?

    Repasting the same - will result in the same look.

    And if you copy/paste from other sources into the visual editor - the text will keep its original formatting and NOT what is in your blog's stylesheet.

    I've already done that. As in, I took that initial attempt prior posting this issues on here. The problem remains the same.

    From there, I took the content from /events/ to ms word and did the changes over there. And then re-pasted it into WP. Barely any luck.

    Any other suggestions? This is very puzzling...

    I took the content from /events/ to ms word and did the changes over there.

    That's exactly what I am trying to tell you: DO NOT EVER DO THAT. DO NOT COPY & PASTE FROM monster programs like MS Word into the wysiwyg editor.

    Then how I do keep the font look from /events/ to be on all the pages.

    If you are telling me to never copy and paste from MS Word or monster programs into the wysiwyg editor then the font I want, will never be available.

    Therefore keeping the issue at large - unsolved.

    You can keep it open as long as you want... but it would be good for you to understand how WP works.
    You should NEVER define any font things in your posts. Period.
    All your fonts are defined in thwe stylesheet; this is for your posts/PAges:

    div.item_class .item_text{
    	color:#8b8b8b;
    	font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    	font-size:11px;
    	padding-top:5px;
    	padding-bottom:5px;
    	padding-right:5px;
    	line-height:22px;
    }

    If you do not mess with Word, then you would have this style in effect everywhere - as you have it in the other page where there is NO inline style in your post and it looks as you want them to be.

    So are you saying, I should create a new "about" page. Repaste /events/ content into the new "about" page and re-edit the content for the "about page" within WP dashboard and save.

    If I do it this way, it should come out universal. Is that what are you saying? Or are you saying that there is no hope - simply because I tinkled with WordPress because I played with Word.

    Close your Word for ever - when working in WordPress; that's for starters.

    Or, forget formatting anything in Word, and when you write something in it, first copy/paste to Notepad and from there into the WordPress.

    Ok, done it with the way you suggested. Same font issue.

    How can I access the CSS from the editor? It doesn't give me the permissions. What chmod command should I use?

    Thanks,

    You should not need to access your .CSS, and if you're not sure how, it's probably a good idea to leave it alone for now.

    What moshu is trying to say is that when you use MSWord you have formattng built in which may not be consistent with your theme. But, I think I can solve your problem.

    1. Do as moshu suggested, cut your text and paste in into Notepad. Now save notepad as something.

    2. Re-open, refresh your browser AND delete the cache contents from your browser. and

    3. try re-pasting directly from Notepad to your post which of course you have erased when you cut. It should work.

    If not, you have a panel on your post editor for pastes from Word which cleans the formatting. You can paste to that, and then dump it to the post. I think either will work. Let us know.

    LCnSac..

    I don't know what to tell you. I tried both attempts. I even cleared my cache. The issue is still the same. No change from what I started. Check it out.

    Btw, I am working off a MAC. Is WordPress MAC complaint?

    Thanks,

    Your page template (page.php) is missing the
    <div class="item_text"> div around the Page content. Edit your template and add this div before the_content tag (and closing it after it) and you will be fine.

    Ok, this is the code on (page.php)

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    <h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    <div class="entry">
    <?php the_content('<p class="serif">Read the rest of this page »</p>'); ?>

    <?php wp_link_pages(array('before' => '<p>Pages: ', 'after' => '</p>', 'next_or_number' => 'number')); ?>

    </div>
    </div>
    <?php endwhile; endif; ?>
    <?php edit_post_link('Edit this entry.', '<p>', '</p>'); ?>

    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Moshu, where should I add <div class"item_text"> ?

    Thank You for your effort and time.

    Actually, the div "entry is NOT defined in your stylesheet. It took me a while to figure it out...
    Replace this line:
    <div class="entry">
    with the one I gave you above.

    PERFECT. THANK YOU SOO MUCH!!

    Just a quick enquiry...now that I got the font type I wanted. i noticed the paragraph formatting is off. For example, paragraphs are not seperated from one another.

    other than using a <br> code, is another way to do it in WordPress?

    Your time is greatly appreciated :D

    You should really learn how to read your own stylesheet. It does exactly what is defined there:

    div.item_class .item_text p{
    	padding:0px;
    	margin:0px;
    }

    Please look at me as a person who is an ultra beginner with WordPress. That means, short explainations to my issues do not help me at all.

    Look it this way, when you went to school and did not understand an equation. Some one guided you to understand the problem - they did not throw you in pit of fire expecting you to blow it off on your own.

    In time, I will understand wordpress. But now, I am way below what a beginner might consider himself.

    I come to you with a creative background. Print and Branding is my speciality. Code is code. Zero's and One's. Right and Wrong, nothing beyond the box. To us artists, it's calculus. To you, it's a lifestyle.

    Nuff said, now back to the case..

    It is not WordPress. It is CSS Basics 101. And if you want to be a webmaster and own a site - you SHOULD get familiar with the basics.

    And no, I didn't start to mess with CSS until I've read and understood the basics. If a non-English speaker linguist could learn it... you can, too :)
