    HELLO. I HAVE CUSTOM CSS. I CANNOT STAND THE FONT STYLE ON THE ‘grandfather of all css’
    THEMES. HOW DO I CHANGE THE FONT TO WHAT I WANT? OR IS IT EVEN POSSIBLE?

    Um, Einstein.

    Your profile links to a Blogspot blog. Are you blogging at wordpress.com at all?

    It is possible to change the font using the custom CSS but I would like to see your blog to know which theme you are using. We can then advise with which bits to change.

    OOPS! judyb12
    Oh dear I guess you didn’t know that we bloggers are not allowed to make corrections like this one on “shouting” – we’re supposed to leave that to the Moderators to do. ;)
    … lol …

    @TT,
    ;-)

    @cafeeinstein,
    I think you’ll have to wait a little longer for the CSS folks to start showing up around here. Sorry :(

    Thanks Dr Mike.

    I’m guessing that the OP has changed the theme they are using. The header in place is for Connections and the theme certainly doesn’t look the way original connections does.

    Do you still need help with this?

    Wow. Looking at what he’s done to Connections, I think typing in ALL CAPS was probably a stylistic decision rather than rudeness ;) Changing fonts is such a basic operation, I think it’s safe to assume he’s figured it out for himself by now.

    Dear Mister Wank:
    I run Cafe Einstein, but am no Einstein when it comes to changing fonts. Can somebody please explain how to change fonts on the Custom CSS Theme. I give a concrete example: I want to change to the Georgia font. So can someone help me with the code?
    Thank you Mister Wank.

    Hello Collin:
    I have not figured out completely WordPress things. My WordPress log is
    cafeeinstein.wordpress.com. I just used the link to the other cafeeinstein.blogspot.com
    to show the font I was looking for. The template on blogger shows front code as:<Variable name=”bodyfont” description=”Text Font”
    type=”font” default=”normal normal 115% Georgia,Serif;” value=”normal normal 115% Georgia,Serif;”> So: I am wondering just how to code the font properly for all h1,h2,h3 slots. I’m just looking for the magic transformation changes that would fit.
    Thank you, everybody who can help out and I won’t shout anymore. Buddy.

    That Variable bit is something specific to blogger. That’s not true HTML or CSS.

    The test of your posts are wrapped within a div labeled post-content. Try something like this:

    .post-content {
    font-family: Georgia,Serif;
    }

    Thank you drmike for your help! I will try this. CSS drives me insane. But I’m insane anyway.

    Hello to drmike:

    Thank you very very very much for your kind assistance. My blog is beginning to look just the way I want it.

    Now that I see I have some control over CSS, maybe I’ll just read the forums that were there all the time on CSS.

    But with old guys like me, we get a little put-off by anything having to do with computers:
    I’m from the ancient Ice Age of Fortran & College Stats – whoa things are a lot nicer now.

    Thanks again,
    Buddy
