Support » Theme: Twenty Seventeen » There’s a difference in Title, H1 fonts between Pages and Posts

    Projects (JetPack portfolios) and Products (WooCommerce) inherit the styles from the Posts.

    However, there’s a clear difference in font styles between Pages and Posts when it comes to the Title and the H1 styles.

    So far, it doesn’t bother me that the H1 styles are different on the Pages, but it does bother me that the Title in the Header is different on the Front page and everywhere else.

    If it did bother me that the H1 was different in the Pages and the Posts, I’d probably be able to find its CSS element and change it in the Appearance Customizer Additional CSS (this is where I’m making all my changes). BUT I would think this could be made simpler for people by a module in the Customer.

    I AM using a Typography plugin called Google Easy Fonts (from memory, slight name difference may occur) that can change my H1 – H6 and Paragraph fonts. But not Title, nor Blockquote.

    You can see all of this on my Portfolio page at the link; clicking the Header (of course) will take you back to the Home page where you’ll see the difference in Title.

    The Menu is at the bottom where you can access other Pages and Products through my shop. If you want a Post to see by comparison:

    My questions to you are:

      what CSS elements do I have to customize to make sure that the Title (and the tagline, just in case!) font is the same across all pages?
      what CSS elements are the H1 for the Pages vs Posts (Projects, Products); and how are they being overridden if they’re supposed to be the same?
      Speaking of blockquote, I am editing that style and I want it to be italic but it is not appearing so (the Additional CSS has been saved.) Why is that?
      Any chance of this being already fixable in the Appearance Customizer without Additional CSS, or that it will become easier?
      If it’s related, how can I reduce the spacing between the Header branding banner and the first H1 on the page? I’d like to make it tighter by a quarter, and I have searched the forum and found the fix to make the branding banner narrower.

    Make sure you’re targetting the class of the title and not the element. The element changes on different pages, for instance the Homepage uses a H1 and the page you’ve linked uses a P tag:

    
    .site-title {
        font-family: 'Proza Libre';
        font-style: normal;
        font-weight: 400;
    }
    

    what CSS elements are the H1 for the Pages vs Posts (Projects, Products); and how are they being overridden if they’re supposed to be the same?

    Can you provide a link to an example page other than the homepage where this is inconsistent?

    Thank you, Andrew! I just applied your code in the Customizer and

    The H1s on the home page are all the same together; this page was taken out of the home page but as a Page, still matches.

    And this is a Post where the H1, like elsewhere, is different.

    So far, all Menu links go to Pages, so that there’s a consistent (if anyone clicked all of them and looked) presentation from each of them.

    In the “Additional CSS” section of the dashboard add this:

    
    html .page-title,
    html body.page:not(.twentyseventeen-front-page) .entry-title,
    html .entry-title {
        font-family: 'Proza Libre';
        font-style: normal;
        font-weight: 300;
        font-size: 26px;
        font-size: 1.625rem;
        text-transform: unset;
        letter-spacing: 0;
        margin-bottom: 0;
    }

    Thank you again, Andrew! (BTW, are you in Ireland, or the Czech Republic? Stats on my Jetpack… though I know I have one mailing list subscriber from C.R.)

    On the Codex link you gave me, was there any section I should focus on learning?

    I’ll apply that code now…

    Looks good! I can’t wait to look at it on a computer where I have the Developer menu on the browser.

    Thank you!

    The codex article is just to help you find where the Additional CSS part of the dashboard is, if you’re not familiar. I’m in the UK 🙂
