Support » Theme: Shell Lite » Changing page/post font style, size & line height

  • Resolved Chris G


    What’s the secret to changing the font style, size and line height in this theme? I’ve found all of the elements in style.css, but when I make changes, it’s never reflected on my site. Something just isn’t right. Thanks.

  • 2 things.

    1. Please include a link to your site.

    2. Are you using a child theme? If not, are you adding ‘!important’ to your styles to override any default styles on the same stylesheet? That being stated….you really ought to create a child theme. It’s only an additional 5 minutes of your life, and I swear to you it will save you tons of frustration in the future.

    Also…what type of style changes are you trying to make to the fonts in the theme? Include them here with your reply so I can adjust them in chrome dev tools and give you the code in my next reply.


    I never made a child theme for this on and I’ve heavily modified the theme, so there’s probably no going back at this point. I haven’t been adding !important to the styles, that may have been the problem.

    I’m actually trying to get a font style and spacing like this. I think the font is Droid Sans (google font).


    Hi Chris,

    As VegasKev is said, the best way to edit themes is to use Child themes. Here if more info how to do it with Shell Lite:

    Also it depends where you made CSS changes. If you put your styles at the bottom of the file, they will be loaded last, so they should have the highest priority.

    Not sure if this will help you, but if have any specific questions, I will try to help you.
