  • Resolved brettsandersuk


    Hi all,

    I feel I have tried everything for this one, and already done tonnes of research to no avail.

    I want to change the font of my ‘Search’ button that on my front page ( and there is another button further down on the front page too (which says Vote), but I can’t seem to do it.

    I have been using Firebug to try to see where I need to change the font, but it doesn’t tell you that does it? (Maybe someone could help with this too?!)

    All I know is that at the moment it is Arial and I would like it to be Georgia to match the rest of the site.

    Thanks in advance,

  • I do not if you have any theme options but look at code T show this in core.css

    #header .search input {
    background:#FFFFFF url(../img/global/search_icon.jpg) no-repeat scroll right center;
    border:1px solid #D9D9D9;

    You can change from this code if it is not created dynamically

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I’ve put this into core.css – is that what you meant? It hasn’t changed the button at all, or do I need to do something further?

    Not to worry… I changed the coding in style.css…

    For anyone else reading this in the future:

    I originally tried font:’Georgia’ but then I noticed in govpatel’s reply above he put “font-family” so I tried font-family:’Georgia’ and it has worked!


    Thanks and good luck everyone
