    I’m trying to change the portfolio title font (text links right above the thumbnails on the welcome page)

    I’m simply trying to change them to Helvetica Neue.

    I’ve replaced all instances of Times New Roman, serif font in base.css.

    I even tried adding a custom line in the custom.css

    #top .portfolio-title {

    font-family: 10px “HelveticaNeue”, “Helvetica Neue”, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-weight:bold; text-transform: uppercase; letter-spacing: 1px;


    it changes everything except the font family.

    for some reason just they stubbornly remain Times New Roman.

    is there something i’m missing?

    On a different note, is it possible to add more Google Font options to the Heading Font (under the drop-down for the Theme Options).

    If not, how easy would it be for me to change that header font?

    Thanks for your help




    I scoured the theme for every place that Times New Roman is found in the css files. and then i added them all to one massive definition which you will put at the very end of your /css/custom.css file.

    #top h1, #top h2, #top h3, #top h4, #top h5, #top h6, #scn-options h3, #scn-preview h3, #scn-options-error h3, #top blockquote, #top blockquote:before, #top .special_amp, #top .wp-caption-text, #top title_container .page-subtitle, #top .dynamic_el_1 .page-subtitle, #top .first-quote:after, #top .portfolio-title, #top .tweet-text.avatar_no, #top .widget_rss li div, #top .recentcomments a, #top .widget_recent_entries li a {
    font-family: "HelveticaNeue-Light", "Helvetica Neue Light", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, "Lucida Grande", sans-serif;

    You should also know that this is not a web safe font. What that means is that most folks dont have it pre-installed on their computer, and if they don’t they won’t be able to display it. This is a proprietary font, i just looked, and is hard to find and costs a bundle just to use on your desktop for yourself.

    To acquire this font you will need to find a black market font dealer, but I would advise against it, since those guys are all connected to big gangs on World of Warcraft, powerful stuff, and they can mesmerize even a pro stenographer with their fine calligraphy and next thing you know you are hooked for life!

    You can try these free fonts somewhat similar:

    or Amiro

    are close to it

    Good luck,



    Awesome Nick.

    Thanks for your help!


    No problem and good luck!
