  • I had a look at your latest post just now.

    The problem appears to be with some CSS code in the header of your Theme.

    I can’t say for sure if the code is actually in the header.php file, so if you look in that file you should see a line of code like this:

    b, strong {background:#FF3;}

    That is what is changing the behavior of your bold and strong tags. To reset the b and strong tags to their standard behavior, you should alter that Style definition like so:

    b, strong { font-weight: bold; }

    If however you can’t find the style definintion I refer to above in your header.php file, it is POSSIBLE that they are attaching the code to your header via the wp_head hook, so another good place to look would be your functions.php in your active theme folder.

    I hope this helps!

    I’m not at code sauvvy as I’d like, but I was able to change it under Appearances, then Theme Options, Style Settings and finally changing the “bold text back ground” from yellow to a light gray. The txt is still not bold, but it’s defiantly a theme issue. Why is it so hard to find a decent theme that stands apart from all the others when your not capable of making your own?

    Good Guy

    Well, it is easy to customize your theme if you are working with the child-theme. If you create a child theme then I can provide the relevant CSS code here to make it work for you. There is a saying that “Never hack the core” and so child-theme comes to your rescue. Read this to get the idea about child themes:

    Hope this helps.
