Magazine Basic: How 2 change general font and set gray surrounding

  • Hi. Magazine Basic is a stunning theme! Here’s my questions:

    – how to change the font for general text body
    – hot to create a gray surrounding so that there is not so much white on large windows

    Font and gray surroundings could be like on “Kubrick”, the default theme with WordPress.

    I already managed to change a few things via the “Magazine Basic” menu and via “Appearance/Editor”. But i don’t see how to change the font for general text body and the excerpts on the front page. There are so many template files and so many “font” entries.

    How to create a gray surrounding, i have no idea either. It could be plain one-color-gray, even though a fading gray would be even nicer.

    I am new to all things blogue, but have a general intermediate understanding of things software.

    Thanks a lot!

  • Hi, a bit late but better late than never!

    For the font:

    locate body { in your CSS style sheet

    insert the following:
    font-family: arial (or whatever font you want)

    eg:
    body {
    color: #444;
    margin: 0 auto;
    font-size: 14px;
    padding: 0;
    background: #000000;
    font-family: arial
    }

    For the surrounding area, i assume you mean the background. If so, change the hex code next to background above to your desired colour.

    Enjoy

    Hoooger,

    How do I access my Appearance/Editor which is lost after a server switch. I cannot edit anthing for my plugins or template.
