I have the following CSS to change the default font:
font-family: helvetica, sans serif;
It’s not working however. The font is serif.
I thought it might be due to having installed the TinyMCE Advanced. So I removed the font feature of that plugin, but nothing has changed. I hesitate to remove the plugin altogether, as it has features that I definitely use that are not a part of Wordpress’ offering. And I’m concerned as to what would happen to the entire site.
What is the default font of the Unite theme anyway?
I hope you are doing well today.
The theme’s default font is Helvetica.
You can use the following CSS code to change the font by going to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS and pasting it there.
Sorry, you have misunderstood me. I want sans serif.
I took out the CSS for making the font helvetica, as I didn’t realize that helvetica was the default font already. In the dashboard, in visual, the font is sans serifi, however, after publishing the font turns to serif. So strange.
That’s why I had to install TinyMCE Advanced, to get the sans serif that I wanted, but it’s a nuisance to have to change the font inline for every paragraph I write.
Here’s a page to look at. test page – Chicago Community Teaching Center
When looking in firebug, I clearly see that helvetica is lined out, but I have no idea why.
Resolved. The selector was: .entry-content, not body.
I am glad the solution worked for you.
