Support » Fixing WordPress » Font Weights Broken in Safari since WordPress 3.7.1 Update

  • Hi!

    For some reason my Font Weights on my site aren’t working in Safari since either the WordPress 3.7.1 Update (or the OS X Mavericks update)!

    Is anyone else having this issue?

    I haven’t changed a thing in my CSS stylesheets + they work fine in Chrome + Firefox… but are too light to read in Safari 🙁

    Anyone have a fix?

    Thanks! 🙂

  • I’ve seen a few other threads on problems with Safari/Mavericks – maybe try an Apple forum.

    Which elements are too light?

    -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
    solved alot of mac font weights issues for me.

    @wpyogi – I was thinking that – but I don’t have the issue on all websites in general, it’s just specifically my WordPress site :/

    If you view my site in Chrome + Firefox (as opposed to Safari), you can see a significant difference in font weight for the text in the post body + the post sub-headings (pink cursive), as well as the site’s main Nav / Sub Menus. It’s driving me NUTS!

    @aloncarmel2k – Thanks! What is that or what do I do with that? I googled it, but I don’t understand :/

    Thanks guys! 🙂

    Open your wp-content/themes/yourthemename/style.css and add at the top

    body {

    -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;



    Didn’t work for me 🙁

    TY though! Hopefully I can find a fix soon!
