Removing CSS to allow Custom Design fonts

  1. Greetings! I'm trying to figure out how I can remove/edit my existing CSS so that I can use the newer Custom Design Typekit font themes. It seems as though the CSS I wrote ages ago is over-riding the changes I'm making in the Custom Design menu. I think I've found the spots I need to change, but I'm wondering how to edit them so that they no longer take precedent over options I choose in Custom Design. Thank you!

    Here are the places in my CSS where font is written:

    body {
    font:60% Orator Std, Arial, sans-serif;
    font-family:Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif!important;

    .post-title,.post-title a,#secondary {
    font-family:"Orator Std", Times New Roman, Times New Roman, Times, serif;


    code {
    font-family:Orator Std, Arial, sans-serif;


    .widgets li {
    font-family:Orator Std, Arial, sans-serif;

    #secondary h3 a {
    font-family:"orator std";

    The blog I need help with is

  2. In the body section, get rid of the
    after the font stack and see if that doesn't do the trick. If it doesn't, remove the "font-family" declaration from all of those selectors in your CSS.

  3. Oh and also, you have fonts declared in body in two locations: once in the "font" declaration and then again in the "font-family" declaration. Remove all font calls from your CSS.

  4. That did the trick! Thanks! I was worried to remove the font calls in case that meant removing the text (seems silly now that I think about it) but that was all I needed.

    Thanks again.

  5. You are welcome.
