New Custom Fonts

I think the new custom font feature is great, but I have two questions. First of all, when I changed to one of the custom fonts, it did indeed change most of the text in my text widgets, however, there are certain areas that remain trebuchet. Is there a way that I can highlight and change this text to one of the custom fonts? I really don't want to have to re-type everything. The text editor does not list these new fonts, so I can't highlight and change the text that way. Also the default size showing up is really small. Is there a way to change the default size for the entire site? Perhaps using CSS? Yet again, I do not want to go through every page and have to highlight and choose a bigger size. ( I have over 500 pages on my site!). Please let me know.

Aaron, use photocopy of the fonts you wish, .png for top blend-in, if you're talking of headers design and such, in time and stress saving means. That is not read by warms of search engines, but you can put worm feed in usual ways.

Hi AAron,

CSS is the way to go for changing the default size of your text and probably the widget text as well.

If you can let me know your site address I can let you know the code to do this.

Hello Aaron,

You are using a number of fonts on your index page and I see that some of the text is in fact images rather than fonts typed directly.

Your body text hasn't been changed to your custom font that I can see so that is one thing to apply specifically.

I noticed that the builder has also ignored some changes to HTML that you have applied in your CSS over-rides and this may also be something that is causing confusion to you as it doesn't stae specifically what has been reversed or ignored.

Your navigation font has been applied as well as your headings h1 to h6.

If you need further help with this then maybe you can let me know specifically which text you would like to change?

Thanks for the reply. I realized that to change text on individual pages that did not change automatically is quite easy. I can highlight the text, and using the html button in the text editor, change what's there to span style="color..etc. Then I can just resize the text as I wish. However, that does not apply to all the text that was changed automatically across my site. How can I change the default size of the span style? The other problem is the pages plant species list A-Z, and N-Z, the links to which can be seen on the main Galleries page. Each of these links has its own html listed. I fear I might have no choice but to edit each one, because I don't see how I can globally change everything highlighted.

I think that one way to do this is to redefine one of the h tags probably and from h3 to h6 and style it with the font, colour and size you wish to use for your Gallery lists.

When you add an item then just select the specific h tag and it will be published as you wish.

You could also use some CSS and call that definition in for each item in the list. It can't be done retro because there isn't a definition for the style but if you include all the list within a div then you can call the definition in for the div I think.
