Hi - Please could anyone tell me how to change the font on a new article?

I have just written an article on an art deco cinema so I wanted the font to be sort of like art deco....I clicked on the one I liked, but it doesn't come out when I publish the page. It reverts back to the one I had before.

Any thoughts?   Many thanks.

I'm seeing your titles in Tienne, a heavy serif font. It doesn't look art deco to me, but none of the fonts do.

If I'm not mistaken, when you change the font it's just the titles and headings that change. The general body remains the same.

Right. I assumed she was talking about the titles, not the body font, which can't be changed.

Maybe "Lobster" would serve you better? I find the lines going well with one of my articles about art deco artist. Again - it is only for titles.

Hello everyone - Thanks for your replies.  Yes, I just wanted the headings changed and Tienne was the font I chose so I am glad that you can see it Catana.

I can only see it when my page is in Edit mode - but when I press Page View or Publish  it reverts to an ordinary font.

Well that's ok though as long as the viewer sees what I intended originally!

Thanks for your responses.

It comes up looking like a thin line type font first, but as the page loads it changes.

Just FYI.

And by the way, I think you have a typo in subtitle: "Our Hero in Jeapardy". I hope this helps too:)

Yes, it was a toss up between Lobster and Tienne.  I chose the latter in the end as I thought it was just that bit easier to read (if like me you are getting on a bit!).

Thanks for the suggestion.

You not seeing it change immediately may have been a cache issue.  You could either press F5 to clear the cache on the refresh, or run CCleaner to really dig out the digital dirt. :)

Oh thanks Jo!  I will give that a go right now - using CCleaner!  :) xx

*grins evilly*. I have a guest post on my blog suggesting Write Drunk, Edit Sober. It's OK to write drunk, just remember not to publish until you have read it through when sober! I have had several tonight, not sure if the article I'm working on will hit the decks tonight or not...


Described by one of my clients as 'a literary grammarian', writing, researching and reading are requirements for sanity, at least this side of the keyboard.

Ha ha!  I am wondering whether to slip out to the offy - or wait for Tesco delivery tomorrow....decisions, decisions....    I agree about your tip to edit sober - that would make a great slogan on a mug (or wine glass...)
