Title Font and Post Background Color

  • Author

    I use the Motions theme which I customized with a photo for the background. Now the text which is white doesn’t show as well. I’d like to change the background of the post boxes to solid black and the font of the title to Zapfino. Is this possible and how is it done?

    The blog I need help with is roslynhardyholcomb.com.


    Give this a try and see what you think.

    .page .content, .post {
    margin-bottom: 35px;
    padding: 10px;
    .page .content, .post, .sticky {
    background: #000000;

    For the font, not all computer systems will have zapfino, and the first place the browser will look for fonts in on the visitor’s computer. If they do not have that font, then the browser will substitute either the browser-standard serif or sans-serif font.

    What you need to do is to find that font, or a similar font in the typekit custom fonts and use that.

    We’ll need to know what “titles” you want to change. The site title? The post titles? The titles of the sidebar widgets (which I see you don’t have titled)?




    I’m also looking to change the background color of my posts but am unsure where to put the code above (ie. .post .content .sticky .{ …)) as adding it to the html on the edit post page didn’t do anything…

    Thank you!




    This thread is about the Motion theme, and http://jessicakalynn.wordpress.com/ is using the Bueno theme. CSS most often needs to be different for each theme.

    To change the background color behind posts in the Bueno theme,

    .post, div.page {
    	background-color: #ffd;
    	border: 5px solid #ffa;

    Adjust the color code as necessary.
