Changing Font in Blog Title (Retrospotive) (5 posts)

    Granted, I am a relative newbie...but gee whizz..

    I just changed my template to Carol's Retrospotive and although I really like the template, I don't like the default font for the Blog title. I've been through the style sheets, the header sheet, the side bar sheet, the body - every where I can think of to find the font command to change the font - but it appears to be coded as something other than 'font'. I found this on the header page, and am wonder if this:

    "Search Results for " . wp_specialchars($s)

    is the code I need to play with.
    Here is the paragraph of code cut and pasted.

    <?php $curauth = get_userdata($author); ?>
    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?><?php if( is_404() ) { ?> » Not found<?php } elseif (is_day() || is_month() || is_year() ) { ?> » Archives<?php } elseif ( is_category() ) { ?> » Archives » Category<?php } elseif ( is_author() ) { ?> » Archives » Author <?php echo "» " . $curauth->user_nickname; ?><?php } elseif ( is_search() ) { ?> » <?php echo "Search Results for " . wp_specialchars($s) ; ?><?php } ?><?php wp_title(); ?></title>

    Can anyone help me with this?

    You don't need to do anything in the header.php
    Just open your stylesheet (style.css) and find this line:
    #header h1 {
    font: bold italic 3.2em Georgia, "Comic Sans MS", sans-serif;
    letter-spacing: -.1em;
    padding-top: 9px;
    }

    Change the font from Georgia to whatever you wish...

    Does not work! Ms. Carol has done something SECRET - I've fiddled with the header h1 code and NOTHING HAPPENS! It doesn't change. I've been at this for hours.

    Then you are either modifying the wrong line in your stylesheet or your browser is showing you a cached version of the site. I just used the FF web developer to edit your stylesheet and it works.
    The line quoted above is in the Headers section of the stylesheet.
