    Hello,

    I’m building a site with the Shoutbox theme locally. I don’t know if the local part has anything to do with the font, but the body text is all showing up in a serif font. It looks like your default styles.css has it set to Helvetica Neue… Just in case, I added this snippet to the Quick CSS in Theme Options:

    body {

    font-family: “Helvetica Neue”, Arial, sans-serif;

    color: #000000;

    font-size: 13px;

    position:relative;

    overflow-x: hidden;

    }

    Which is basically just a differently-worded version of the same thing in styles.css. Still the body text is showing up as a serif. All of the headings and the nav are correct, though. My browser is the most updated Google Chrome, by the way.

    Any advice on fixing this? I can send screenshots if needed.

    Very best,

    Amy

    Hi Amy,

    What do you mean by body text exactly? If you mean the text inside the posts you need to set the .post-entry parameter. The body parameter does the text for the menus and titles and things like that.

    If you use a source code inspector something like Firebug (add on for Firefox) in your browser it can help you identify which bits of css code do what. It makes life a lot easier for making changes.

    Hi,

    Since most of the text is stack inside the paragraph tag maybe adding the p element on your custom.css will help.

    body p  {
    font-family: "Helvetica Neue", Arial, sans-serif;
    color: #000000;
    font-size: 13px;
    position:relative;
    overflow-x: hidden;
    }

    Regards,

    Hey guys,

    You gotta believe me…I tried adding the p element before I had written this query and it didn’t change anything! But now it works. I’m thinking I must have simply phrased some of the code wrongly when I was fiddling with other edits ;)

    Thanks for the help in resolving this issue!

    Best,

    Amy
