    I am trying to implement some changes to the title and the subtitle. I was able to implement the font change on the title but the subtitle has <cite></cite> tags around it and the design for those is implemented in shortcodes.css

    However I cannot get the design to recognize a larger font. I have tried in two different ways to implement it but gets ignored. It works fine if I change the shortcodes.css file but I need it to work in custom.css.

    This is what my custom.css is like

    blockquote a small, blockquote a cite {

    color: #AAAAAA;

    font-size: 40px;


    cite {

    font-family: ‘Ubuntu Condensed’,”Times New Roman”;

    font-style: italic;

    font-weight: normal;

    letter-spacing: 0;

    line-height: 1.5em;

    font-size: 40px;


    blockquote {

    color: #555555;

    font-family: ‘Ubuntu Condensed’,sans-serif;

    font-size: 1.8em;


    font-style: normal;

    line-height: 1.4em;


    With best regards,




    Haven’t worked with css for a while. Instead of changing

    blockquote cite

    I was changing blockquote a cite

    It would have only worked if there was a link within the cite tag.

    Solved. Works now.

    P.S: Typical Murphy law. Tried fixing it for an hour, then solved it 5 minutes after posting the question here.
