  • Hi Guys,

    I have always had a problem with my custom design page, the fault being that whenever I edit a page or post, I make text bold or italics or underline and it then i click publish and the it just goes to normal, plus it doesn’t change it to the new formatting on the page if I click refresh.

    Can someone suggest anything, here is the the link

    Thanks to anyone who can help me.

  • Try using Firefox with the Firebug add-on for this kind of CSS troubleshooting. Or use whatever developer tool is available in your web browser.

    what does the add-on do?

    Please see the page at the link I posted above.


    I tried using firebug, but I think the problem is with the <strong> tag in the css as I click on what I have made in bold on firebug and it shows <strong> tag on the page, but it isn’t display the font as being bold – does anyone know how to fix this?

    [Moderator Note: Please post markup between backticks or use the code button.]

    Here’s some CSS that would make the strong tag appear bold:

    strong {
      font-weight:bold !important;

    Does that work for the strong tags on your site?

    Yeh that worked!!!! thanks so much!
    What would I add in to make the italics work aswell?

    I’m glad it worked. Here’s the italics:

    em {
      font-style:italic !important;
