    I currently use StudioPress/Focus Child Theme and am wondering how I change the title and copy of each blog post to Verdana.

    Thanks,

    I’ll give it a shot.  Not easy until you’ve done it once or twice.

    Using Firefox as a browser, make sure you install ‘Firebug’.  You can find it on the orange ‘firefox’ drop down at the upper left of your browser.  It is under ‘add-ons’.

    Once installed, it will show up on the upper right hand side of your screen.  You can go to the text you want to change, and right click on it. Select, ‘Inspect element with Firebug’.  They look at the bottom of your screen, which should now have a complicated box with lots of code and other stuff.  Go to ‘style’ on the right hand side.  You will some code.  You can change that code and see what the text will look like in Verdana.

    Then you need to copy the code for that font, find the code in your CSS, and replace the font style with the new font.  It will now be all over your site.

    I ALWAYS make a copy of the CSS and save it before doing anything like this.  Then, if it is wrong, you can just replace the whole CSS with the one saved.  YOu should use something like Notepad, because it does not add any additional code. Word will add all kinds of things and break your CSS totally.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks, I’ll give it a try.

    The other way to do it, although not a permanent fix I think would be to insert <FONT SIZE=”-1″ FACE=”Verdana”> …. </FONT> manually into each paragraph and title of the post.
