Support » Fixing WordPress » Change ALL fonts to Verdana 10

  • I just spend a good hour playing with the style.css attempting to do this, but no luck.

    Damn this is frustrating.

    Can someone please tell me how to change ALL fonts to Verdana 10pt? I tried everything, nothing changes…

    Without seeing your css ? No…..

    yes, edit your theme’s style.css file and change all font references to verdana and all size references to 10pt. Upload your edited file to the server and do a hard refresh with your browser to refresh the cached stylesheet.

    Just tried that, still does not change.

    What’s going on here?

    I’ve put Verdana first and changed all to “10pt”.
    Has not changed….

    * {
    font: 10pt verdana !important;

    Try that

    where do I insert that though?

    in the style.css file of your theme folder…

    Hi, I know that but where in the code?

    Here’s a cut from the top of the style.css I have…

    /* Begin Typography & Colors */
    body {
    font-size: 10pt; /* Resets 1em to 10px */
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    background-color: #d5d6d7;
    color: #333;
    text-align: center;

    #page {
    background-color: white;
    border: 1px solid #959596;
    text-align: left;

    #header {
    background-color: #73a0c5;

    #content {
    font-size: 10pt;

    .widecolumn .entry p {
    font-size: 10pt;

    .narrowcolumn .entry, .widecolumn .entry {
    line-height: 10pt;

    .widecolumn {
    line-height: 10pt;

    It shouldn’t matter where you paste it. That line will override everything

    LOL…still did not change.

    Man, I don’t get this…

    You could have any other css going on.
    A link will ease your pain fastest 🙂

    Well then, I’ll hazard a guess that you’re editing the wrong style.css file. Are you sure you’re in the folder for the correct theme? The one that is currently active?

    Like podz said, a link would save everyone a lot of trouble and grief.

    Here’s the thing…

    The plain (edited) blog is here..

    I’m inserting it here:

    Actually, if you noticed, both show different fonts even though it is the exact same file. ??

    Nothing changes…

    Thanks for the help…let me know what I need to do here.
    Would really like to use this over Greymatter.

    Yes, the right style.css is being edited…
    That’s what’s driving me nuts!

    BODY { color: $textcol; font-family: Arial,
    TD.dark {color: $textcol; font-family: Arial
    TD.light {color: $textcol; font-family: Arial
    TD.alt {color: $textcol; font-family: Arial
    all from:
    Inline Styles from

    I’ll note on the /wordpress/ site you don’t even have any header information, and the stylesheet isn’t linked whatsoever. It looks like you overedited the theme. Try adding <?php get_header() ?> to your index.php in your theme
