Support » Fixing WordPress » My website doesn't display italic type

  • Hi all,

    I’m using the Muse theme developed by Grandpixel. My website is roaringisland.com and it doesn’t display italic type in the posts. Bold and underlining display normally. Can someone please check my website and tell me how to fix it?

    Much appreciated!

  • I found a solution but I had no idea why this occurred. If the path of the letters I want to make bold and italic is p » strong » em, then it works. But if it’s p » em » strong, then only bold effect will display. Can anyone tell me why?

    Can you replicate the problem using the default Twenty Thirteen theme?

    I’d guess that the CSS in your theme has “reset” the em tags to not display as italic.

    My reset tags are the following:

    /* Tags */
    html, body, div, span, object, iframe, p, blockquote, pre, a, abbr, acronym, address, big, cite, code, del, dfn, em, img, ins, kbd, q, s, samp, small, strike, strong, sub, sup, tt, var, b, u, i, center, dl, dt, dd, ol, ul, li, fieldset, form, label, legend, table, caption, tbody, tfoot, thead, tr, th, td, article, aside, canvas, details, embed, figure, figcaption, footer, header, hgroup, menu, nav, output, ruby, section, summary, time, mark, audio, video, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 { margin: 0; padding: 0; border: 0; outline: 0; font: inherit; font-size: 100%; font-style: normal; vertical-align: baseline; background: transparent; }

    em { font-style: italic; } (I added this line after reading a post related to italic font problem. After I added it, if I want to make letters bold and italic, I have to make sure the path is p » strong » em. p » em » strong doesn’t work)

    You could have other CSS that overrides resets.

    With the default Twenty Thirteen theme, it seems fine.

    So the issue would appear to be in the Muse theme, yes? Try contacting the theme’s developer & asking about this.

    Thanks. I just found that I have to make the font italic first, then make it bold. This way italic and bold will both display normally. Now I can tolerate this issue. I will still talk to the theme developer.
