Support » Fixing WordPress » Adding colour and changing font of post title

  • Hi there,
    I’m a newbie and am really proud of what i have accomplished so far but i just need some advice.
    Im currently using ‘simple catch’ and i just wanted to know if it would be possible to change the font of the post title so it matches the site title which is lobster and also the colour to deep pink.
    I also like to sign my name at the end of my posts and i would like this to be in pink.

    Can this be done and if so how?

    Your help and advice would be much appreciated
    🙂

    Do you know how to change the css of your theme? You should be able to edit it using the editor.

    Editing theme files is discouraged as these are lost on theme updates. Consider using a Child Theme, a Custom CSS Plugin, or look for Custom CSS option in your theme (this does not mean edit style.css in the theme editor)

    Add this:

    #main #content .post h1,
    #main #content .post h2.entry-title {
         font-family: 'Lobster';
         font-weight:normal;
    }

    Your right Seacoast Web Design. I should have brought that up.

    Hey SeaCoast, thanks for your advice! I actually have a child theme and i tried your css but it didnt work. This is what i typed in, could the syntax be wrong?
    }
    #main #content .post h1,
    #main #content .post h2.entry-title; {
    font-family: 'Lobster'
    font-weight:normal;
    color: deeppink !important;
    }
    Your help would be much appreciated

    Try this instead:

    #main #content .post h1,
    #main #content .post h2.entry-title {
         font-family: Lobster;
         font-weight:normal;
    }

    Hi Graphical force,
    the css worked a treat, many thanks. Just one more thing, do you know how to change the colour of the post title?
    Thanks

    This controls the color:

    #main h1 a, #main h2 a, #main h3 a, #main h4 a, #main h5 a, #main h6 a {
    color: #444444;
    }

    Change the hex value to whatever color you want.

    Hmmmm…with or without the ‘s should work…and you missed the closing ;
    font-family: 'Lobster' <==nope
    the first } was improper also…
    (you can copy and paste snippets from here, the one in the ‘code’ blocks, taken with a grain of salt, everything is not golden and some may be outdated or unrelated to your issue)

    Hi there graphical force, thanks for your help but the css did not work. Seacoast i am a newbie and didnt understand any of what your message meant.

    Thanks in advance for your help
    🙂
