    I have searched the threads here regarding heading fonts and I cannot seem to change my header font. The rest of the text changed OK when I made everything Tahoma, but for the life of me I can’t make the header change.

    I think I must have missed something very basic… but I need help to find this basic thing. Help me… please!


    I think I should clarify a little. I was referring to the text area headers in the ‘one page layout’ rather than the headers in pages created… those work fine, it’s just the ones in the text areas as ‘block quotes’ that remain in Georgia italic regardless of what I do.



    You are not retarded. :)

    Just add this on your custom.css

    blockquote {
    color: #555;
    font-family: Arial,"Times New Roman",Times,serif;
    font-size: 1.2em;
    font-style: normal;
    line-height: 1.4em;

    Just change the values.





    I want to change the color of the font on block quotes to a much darker gray and have tried every suggestion I could find on your support pages, including this suggestion to limeybikes, without success. For example, I’ve done what you suggest here via the styles.css file in my Enfold child theme, via the custom.css file in the parent theme, and via quick css on the WordPress dashboard. The font styles and size change with no problem, but the color always stays the same moderate gray even when I specify #000000.

    I would appreciate any help. It’s extremely frustrating as I’ve spent hours trying to make this simple color change. (I would also like to change the font color in sidebar text to a darker gray, but I’d be happy to solve this first problem.)





    Take a look->

    please add the following css to your /css/custom.css or to Quick CSS

    .main_color blockquote {
    font-size: 1.3em;
    color: red;




    Thanks very much Nick. I just returned from vacation and discovered your response. It worked just fine.

    If I may, I would like to ask a follow up question: Instead of having a blue border band to the left of the blockquote, is it possible to substitute a large quotation mark image (similar to the icon used for inserting the blockquote on the edit page)? If so, how would I do that?





    Sure. You can take a regular question mark, and put it at size 100 font, though you would be better off using an image I think unless you can find a font that is tall and very thin.

    The way you would do it is by uploading the image with media , as you normally would, then grabbing the url of the image of the question mark and adding some css to the above example.

    You can actually find a half dozen or so here
