[Resolved] Change font in posts

  • I want to change the font in my posts. I installed the google fonts plugin and don’t see any option to select the font when I’m editing the post. I also installed the CSS plugin and tried using this script to change the font but it hasn’t changed anything either. Is there another option? What am I doing wrong?

    I went to Appearance – Custom CSS Manager – pasted this:

    body {
    font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, Futura, sans-serif;
    font-size: 16px;
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
    }

    Looks like the CSS you need to target is this:

    .entry-content,
    .entry-summary

    E.g;

    .entry-content,
    .entry-summary {
     font-family: Tahoma;
    }

    thank you thank you thank you!! that worked perfectly!

    i also want to change the darkness of the font in the homepage for the 4 items below. it’s too light before the hover:
    1. Homepage name
    2. “About” link
    3. “Home” link
    4. “+” sign at the bottom of the page

    can i ask for your help here or start a new thread?

    You can continue this thread.

    It’s worth also reading up on CSS specificity and getting familiar with a tool like Firebug to help you with these queries.

    how do i also change the font of the “About” and “Home” links on the home page?

    I downloaded Firebug and tried to find the code to alter. I thought it would be this code below (to change the font color for “About” and “Home” links). So I pasted it to the Custom CSS Manager. But nothing happened…

    .main-navigation a {
    color: #6E6E6E;
    display: block;
    text-decoration: none;

    The colour turned to #6e6e6e on my screen (a slightly darker shade of grey than before). Did you clear your browser’s cache?

    That’s strange. Before you hover, did it turn to a darker shade or after you hover? I was trying to make it easier to see before the hover over.

    Then try increasing the opacity on the header:

    #masthead { opacity: 1; }

    I pasted that into the CSS Manager but I don’t see any changes. Do you?

    Doesn’t look like it’s in your Custom CSS Manager

    I pasted it into the Appearance/Custom CSS Manager but if you don’t see it, it looks like I need to put it into Appearance/Edit CSS instead. Does that sound right?

    I don’t know, sorry, I was just going on that you had a Custom CSS Manager plugin.

    Ok I just checked and I was missing a closing bracket, so it works in Custom CSS Manager now!

    I tried using the firebug plugin (which is AWESOME!) but couldn’t figure out how to change the color of the circle for the “+” sign at the bottom of the page. Or increase opacity?
