MistyLook theme. Changing Title Font

  1. I just joined wordpress and I chose the MistyLook them, I paid for css.. and I've made a few changes.. I just need help changing the font of ONE FRIGGIN THING!
    My title..

    I want it to be in Lucinda Handwriting. On my blog it says "Sunshine, Laughter, Love" (my title) and that's all I want changed. I changed the rest of my font to Helvetica because I didnt like the original.. but I just cant figure out how to change that.

    Any help? I'd be much appreciated.

    The blog I need help with is solariteallegria.wordpress.com.

  2. Try adding this to your CSS:

    #header h1 {
          font-family: Lucida Handwriting;
    }

    Although, I'm not sure if that's the name of the font, and I also think that it's not one that comes with Windows, which it has to be in order to work. Otherwise, you'll need to use font-face.

    Reply if you need any more help.

  3. Otherwise, you'll need to use font-face.

    font-face is not a valid property and it may get stripped out by the wp software.

  4. Really? It's CSS3 - I shall test it out later.

  5. uhm, no is not (I haven't seen anything in the specification). Now, if you're talking about the constructor @font-face, then I am pretty sure it's going to be stripped out by the wp software, same as the @import constructor is; I may be mistaken, though.

  6. Just an addition, if you indeed were talking about the @font-face rule, then you're right, it is CSS3 BUT it currently is in the W3C Working Draft.

    :)

  7. You will shortly be new to the experience of having your spam blog deleted, too.

    Bienvenue!

  8. Yes, I was talking about the @font-face rule. Sorry I didn't clarify. :)
    Most browsers don't support it yet though, including the dreadful IE.

  9. I believe that @font-face is used by Typekit, which is now available (although not easy to use) with WordPress.com blogs.

  10. Spam blog? You talking to me?

  11. Thanks guys for your help, I was doing that.. only idiot me.. I was spelling it Lucinda not Lucida.. lol jackass. I was racking my brain as to why my css wasnt working.. learn to spell Danielle, learn to spell.

  12. No, there was a spammer in the thread; staff deleted it.

  13. Oh that's good, I was going to have to release my inner bitch on you. ;P thanks for clarifying.
