Support » Plugin: Widget Post Slider » Installation of plugin overrides global font and background styles

  • Resolved cudak888


    Title pretty much says all. Loaded up the plugin, and my custom fonts – including those used on the WP administration side – changed. The grey background of the plugin page also turned white.

    Can you please share your site link so that we can find out the exact issue?


    While I cannot activate the plugin and break the live site while awaiting a reply (it affects the size of the text on the front end too), I located the source of the problem:

    The bootstrap styling file in ../widget-post-slider/css/bootstrap.min.css contains the following body code which is overriding and affecting styling site-wide:

    body {
        font-family: "Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
        font-size: 14px;
        line-height: 1.42857143;
        color: #333;
        background-color: #fff;

    On the back-end, the results of this styling override appear as follows:

    Plugin page – normal:
    Plugin page - normal

    After plugin activation:

    Front end – normal:

    Front end – plugin activated:
