Can only affect one element in the #reply-title CSS

  1. I'm trying to change the font-size, font-weight and color of the "Leave a reply..." text over the comment box. The original CSS for the Twenty Eleven theme is...

    #reply-title {
    color: #373737;
    font-size: 24px;
    font-weight: bold;
    line-height: 30px;

    No matter what I change, or the order I put things in, only the line-height will change. That color doesn't make sense either. Hmmm. Thanks.

  2. The font setting and font weight set in the typekit side of things is overriding. That will always take precedence unless you use the " !important " attribute as follows.

    #reply-title {
    color: #333333;
    font-size: 15px !important;
    font-weight: normal !important;
    line-height: 30px;

    The color you set in your CSS (333333) is overriding the 373737 set in the original CSS from what I can see, but if you don't think it is, add the important attribute.

  3. Resolved! I apologize if the !important attribute is written up somewhere. I did try to search, but that pesky English language. :-) Thanks again.

  4. You are welcome.

    I've never see the important attribute covered in any of the typical tutorials that I've gone through before, so the fact you did not see it referenced anywhere does not surprise me. And in general, with well designed CSS, you don't really need it, but because CSS editing/modification here is done differently than normal, it ends up getting used more often here.
