    How can links be bolded in this theme? When a word or phrase is linked and bolded in the edit window, it looks fine. But when the page is loaded in a browser window, the link looks fine but it is UNBOLDED. How can links be made to show up as bolded links in browser windows? I've tried using both the standard "strong" and "b" tags and neither one works... Thanks!

    Hi Sunfellow

    if you want to make all links bold this is the code that will do it;

    a {
    font-weight: bold;
    }

    You can make the change permanent in one of 2 ways.

    1. Go to Appearance=>Theme Options=> CSS Styles and paste the code into the text box or

    2. Create a child theme and paste the code into the style.css file of your child theme.

    The first is the easier if you are not going to make too many changes but it would be worth your while to do the second if you are going to make a lot of style changes.

    I hope this helps

    Hi Dave. Thanks. I don't want ALL of the links to be bold on the website; I just want the ability to bold specific links. If I use your first suggest which, I assume, will make all links bold by default, can these links be manually unbolded?

    Maybe, can you link the page that has a link that you want to style?

    I wanted the ability to make certain links bold, and other links regular throughout the site (not just on specific pages), but I think having bolded links everywhere will work too. The code you gave me did that, so I think I'm good to go! Thanks Dave!

    You're very welcome Sunfeller

    Yes you are quite correct my suggestion does it for all. I'm surprised the theme seems to override those that you made bold in the editor.

    Anyway I'm glad you're ok with the way it is now.
    Take care
    Dave
