Can't change font! (Pagelines "Platform" Theme)

  • Hi, as the title says I can’t change the font!

    I have changed the font to helvetica in every part of the CSS I could find, and NONE of it has changed. Yes I am no guru, but surely I should have noticed some change. 🙂

    I have changed headers, title, I think all of the text but no results. It makes me feel like there is something else keeping it all in whatever font is the default (georgia I think).

    If anyone has had any luck with the free ver. of this theme and changing the fonts I would be much obliged for a leg-up.

    Thanks 🙂

    Provide a link to your site and it’ll be much easier to help you. 🙂

    You need to have Helvetica listed first in your font stacks for it to be displayed by the browser. That’s a very basic CSS principle of font specificity – the browser reads your fonts from left to right. For example, change:

    font-family: 'Droid Sans',"Lucida Grande","Helvetica",sans-serif;

    to

    font-family: Helvetica, "Droid Sans", "Lucida Grande", sans-serif;

    There are a few instances of this throughout your CSS.

    Also keep in mind that you don’t need quotes around fonts that do not have spaces in their names.

    Hi,

    I have the same problem: on the site http://www.rotaryidebank.dk I have been trying to change the font to “Helvetica Neue” but keep on getting the original Georgia. I have a child theme on the site.

    A little help, please? It’s driving me crazy. Thanks,

    Go to theme editor > style.css and u should find this

    body, input, textarea {
    color: #666666;
    font-size: 12px;
    line-height: 18px;
    }

    and replace with this

    body, input, textarea {
    color: #666666;
    font-family: Helvetica Neue;
    font-size: 12px;
    line-height: 18px;
    }

    let me know if it worked.

    Hi,

    Thanks so much for getting back so fast. Unfortunately, it does not work.

    The style.css now reads

    /*
    Theme Name: Twenty Ten Child
    Description: Child theme for 2010 theme for WordPress
    Author:
    Version: 1.0
    Template: twentyten
    */

    @import url(“../twentyten/style.css”);
    ————————————————————– */

    /* =Fonts
    ————————————————————– */
    body, input, textarea {
    color: #666666;
    font-family: Helvetica Neue;
    font-size: 12px;
    line-height: 18px;
    }

    But still no change. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Just checked the buffer and It’s working. Thanks a lot for helping!

    after u add it on css, make sure you save.

    please tell me after u added that, so i can see it, the code.

    Re: your mail

    I changed the parent style sheet to read:

    /* =Fonts
    ————————————————————– */
    body,
    input,
    textarea,
    .page-title span,
    .pingback a.url {
    font-family: “Helvetica Neue”, “Bitstream Charter”, sans-serif;
    }

    This worked instantly. One thing I don’t understand though is why this change did not come thorough when I made the change in the Child theme. Seems like the child style.css is not working. Anyway the site is fine now. Thanks again!
