  • Resolved TourAbsurd



    Just decided to move my Tumblr blog to WP. Have been working hard on modifying a theme and was pretty happy about the progress so far. Managed to import the Tumblr blogs, muck about with the graphics, etc. all good.

    The thing that gets up my nose, though, is that this theme is set to change italics into bold. I found a related thread here, but I can’t quite figure out how that applies to my situation.

    Test site is here:

    The theme is Wallingford and Broadway.

    Can anyone help me find the attribute(s) that I need to change in the style sheet?

    Thanks very much!

  • I think there are two issues that are keeping font from displaying the way you expect them to.

    default.css line 23:

    strong, em, caption, th {
    font-style: normal;
    font-weight: bold;

    reset.css line 17:

    address, caption, cite, code, dfn,
    em, strong, th, var, optgroup {
    font-style: normal;
    font-weight: normal;


    Thank you!

    Added to the bottom of the style sheet:

    em {
    font-style: italic;
    font-weight: normal;

    Test post was corrected immediately. Huge relief! It’s the little things, y’know? 🙂

    Thanks again!

    You’re welcome!
