I’m not super experienced so I apologize if it’s a lame question. What’s the simplest way to change the ‘theme’ font?November 14, 2011 at 15:59 #4126November 30, 2011 at 21:39 #4190
I do >_< how do i change the size of each font? it would be perfect if in the color options of the custom styling, there was also a size option ;PDecember 1, 2011 at 08:07 #4191
I’d strongly recommend the Fontific plugin. It will let you change fonts and adjust font-size, line height, spacing, color and so on for each text type on your site.
Here are some of the font groups you can change to affect different parts of the theme:
Paragraph level fonts — p, li, ol, ul, span, div, label, legend, form, fieldset, input, ul li, ol, li
Widget Titles — h4.widget-title
If you need any other specific fonts changed, let me know which ones specifically and I can help you with them.December 1, 2011 at 19:44 #4204
But this isnt really working,
in the “enter name of text to change here” box,
i copy paste the name from the Styling List of what i want to change
and it wont resize or change colorDecember 1, 2011 at 20:11 #4205
If you’ll send me a link to where you’re working with the theme and let me know what you’d like to change, I’ll tell you what to enter on the box.December 1, 2011 at 20:29 #4206
How can i adjust the width and height of the text box?
How can i give it a fixed height and scroll if it overflows?
i want a little box on the right with how many links i want,
without any title or anything, just a box with the links . how do i do that?
How can i add columns to the index?
I want the content under the donation bar to be divided in a big vertical column and a smaller one on the right. How can i do this?December 1, 2011 at 21:01 #4207
All of those things are possible, but they are beyond the scope of included support and would be considered theme customizations. If you’d like to make a specific list of what all you’d like to change and email it to email@example.com, I’d be happy to give you a quote on the changes.

AH!!! I was so in the website i didnt check this!
Thanks Bill, that will help me so much!December 2, 2011 at 11:35 #4212
Glad to hear that it worked for you Kriz.February 23, 2012 at 10:52 #5164
I want to change the all fonts in Visual Theme at the home page, I mean the same font in all parts of homepage.
Thanks.February 24, 2012 at 17:17 #5178
I would suggest using the Fontific plugin mentioned above. Here are the selectors for the elements on the home page:
#home p, #home li — These control the paragraph level text in the sidebar above the slideshow
#home .widget h4, #home-footer .widget h4 — These control the widget titles
#home-footer p, #home-footer li — These control the paragraph level text in the widget area at the bottom of the home page.
If you have any trouble, let me know.March 5, 2012 at 15:37 #5253
Using the Fontific plugin I pick a font, put “#home .widget h4” (and also tried #home-footer .widget h4) in the line for “Enter selector here” and it does nothing…what am I doing wrong?
(Thanks in advance)March 8, 2012 at 11:08 #5288
Could you send a link to where you’re working on it so I can take a look?

Oh sorry! Yes–morgandenise.com.March 9, 2012 at 15:29 #5314
I took a look and I think I may have found the problem. It looks like Fontific was set to this:
For the home page widgets on the Progress theme, you’ll need something like this:
Try that and see if it doesn’t work a bit better for you.
Enjoy your weekend,

Worked perfectly. Thanks!March 13, 2012 at 18:35 #5361
Thanks Bill, and for changing the tagline?March 22, 2012 at 10:48 #5449
Hi Bill, the plugin works fine, but a friend told me to have care with security issues with the plugin because the author site appears to be hacked. http://kringapps.com/fontific.
What do you recommend?March 22, 2012 at 14:15 #5456
Great question. I’m not aware of any vulnerabilities reported in the plugin itself. It’s still listed on WordPress.org with almost 9,000 downloads.
It’s hard to know what the source of the attack was on the site. It could be the plugin, or a shared database issue, or a easy to guess password. I helped a site this week that had been infected while using admin as both the username and password. The attacker had added code to the Hello Dolly plugin to cause trouble.
If you are worried, you can add fonts directly from Google itself. It is rather easy to add a font, but their online tools don’t have the handy sliders for items like font-size, line-height, color and so on. You can still adjust those elements in the CSS directly if you need to. It just won’t be as convenient.
That might be a prudent course of action until the developer can get things squared away.
