  • Could we have a link to your site, please?

    And could you tell us which version of WordPress you’re using, and which browser (or browsers) you’re using?

    wordpress 2.0

    IE and firefox

    Are you copy/pasting into the wysiwyg editor form some kind of weird wordprocessor?
    I bet you do 🙂

    All paragraph lines in your post content looks something like this:

    <p><font size="2" face="Courier New"><span style="font-size: 10pt">Barry</span></font>

    If moshu’s guess is not correct, then are you using any text formatting plugins?

    Here’s the thing. I keep trying to change the font via the CSS, but when I look at the code i keep seeing

    <font size=”2″ face=”Courier New”><span style=”font-size: 10pt”>Barry</span></font>

    But I can’t find in the theme editor where it has “courier new” in the code. It doesn’t seem to be there and no matter what theme i switch to, the posts always turn up in courier.

    You failed to answer to the crucial question, so I am asking it again: are you copy/pasting it from somewhere into the wysiwyg editor?

    Nope. In fact, even when I change templates the ugly courier new font stays the same.

    If you meant “themes” – they have nothing to do with it.

    Are you saying you are typing the posts into the text input area of the admin panel (Write > Write Post) and simply publishing it gives you all these courier font code? Then there is something wrong with your install…

    Yes, that is what I am doing. But here’s the thing, I keep trying to find a place that controls the fonts for my site and it seems as though that would be the CSS file. But apparently it isn’t. So I guess my question is, “Where is the area for changing fonts?” Is it in the control panel somewhere? OR is it in one of the theme files?
