Changing <strong> to <b> and making it stick
I’m working with the Skinpress theme “Orangy.” I like it quite a lot, but it has some problems. One of them is that the bold text is quite odd – it’s substantially smaller than the normal text and may be a different font – it looks completely wrong. If I go into HTML view and change the < strong > designation to < b >, it changes to normal bolding of the existing font. (I’ve added spaces into coding in the hope that it won’t change the font in this post! There are no spaces in the original)
Problem solved? Not quite. It changes back after a few days. I assume it’s referencing something like the style sheet and self-correcting. I want to change the theme to solve the basic problem, but I don’t know how to tell the theme that the code < strong > is normal bolding of the existing font.
What I’ve tried:
Changing the only three instances of the word “strong” (which had no carets) in the style sheet to the letter ‘b.’ That didn’t do anything.
Changing the page template mentions of < strong > to < b >. This made the most sense, because the problem only happens in pages, not posts but that change had no results either.
I did try writing to the theme creator, but no response. Any suggestions appreciated!
