    When my page loads it appears the text is bold then immediately flicks to non-bold.

    I can’t work out why it’s doing this?


    Hey Paul,
    Looking at your H1 tag “WELCOME TO…” it looks like the font weight 600 has tried to be applied with this css:
    h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6 {font-weight: 600}
    is this what you tried to add? This rule doesn’t have enough specificity to override the theme rule:

    #top #wrap_all .all_colors h1,
    #top #wrap_all .all_colors h2,
    #top #wrap_all .all_colors h3,
    #top #wrap_all .all_colors h4,
    #top #wrap_all .all_colors h5,
    #top #wrap_all .all_colors h6 {
        font-weight: 400;

    Try using Enfold Theme Options ▸ Advanced Styling ▸ All Headings (H1-H6)
    and then clear your browser cache and any cache plugin, and check.
    It looks like your page text “p tag” is also trying to be bold but I’m not sure how you are trying to do this, but you can also use the Enfold Theme Options ▸ Advanced Styling for this.
    If you continue to experience issues with this please include admin login in the Private Content area so we can be of more assistance.

    Hi Mike,

    I don’t quite understand. In the page editor I have just tried to get this text loading as a H1 tag, please see the code here:

    <h1 style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 17pt;">WELCOME TO ************</span></h1>
    <h1 style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 17pt;">THE BLOG THAT WOULDN'T BE POSSIBLE *******************</span></h1>

    That is all that should be applied. Is there some code elsewhere that is messing with this?

    I have uploaded a screenshot of the styling page but in all honesty, this was setup for me and I don’t really understand it. I bought a website which came with your theme which I have now bought so I can get the support. I’m not a web designer but understand little bits.

    Sorry, I’ve just seen at the bottom of your reply requesting admin access if your reply didn’t resolve the issue. If my reply doesn’t clear up what the issue is I’ll be happy to provide admin access, please let me know.

    Thanks again.


    Hi Again,

    I was just going over again what you said and trying to understand it. I noticed in the advanced styling something, the “All Headings (H1-H6)” and “Strong” so I have deleted them.

    Please see the highlighted sections in the screenshot which I have now removed. The text looks a LOT nicer now but it is still loading (on every page) initially in bold and flicking to non-bold.

    Could something else in this section or another section be causing it?

    Thank for the screenshots, in the opening post I thought that you want the text to be bold and it was not staying bold, but in your last post I’m starting to think that you don’t want it bold, is this correct?
    Please include an admin login in the Private Content area so I can examine.

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for the fast reply.

    Yeah, I just want it to load as any normal website. In a regular font unless I specify a bold font or other.

    I’ve included the log credentials as requested.


    Thanks for the login, but it is not admin so I can’t see any of the options or settings in the backend, please check.

    Best regards,


    Hi Mike,

    My apologies, I’ve updated it now.


    Thanks for the login, this is strange behavior that I have not seen elsewhere, I note that some edits I make are not showing correctly, do you have host caching? It looks like you are using litespeed on your host so there might also be a cache, please check.
    The theme has the Enfold Theme Options ▸ Select Your Editor ▸ Use WP Classic Editor option so you can disable the Classic Editor plugin and I would test disabling your other plugins as I’m not able to reproduce this on my demo site, please see the link below.

    Best regards,


    Hi Mike,

    I’m using CloudLinux on the server so I i’ll check with them if there’s any kind of caching. I have development mode on Cloudflare so that shouldn’t be caching anything either.

    I’ll also try disabling each plugin as you suggest if they have no idea.

    I’ll come back to you, thanks again.


    Hi Mike,

    Just to keep you updated, CloudLinux have confirmed it wouldn’t be anything related to the server and suggested I bypassed Cloudflare with the windows hosts file and going direct to the server.

    I did this and it was still happening going direct to the server.

    Next I disabled all plugins and it was still happening.

    I then disabled all custom styling and it was still happning.

    Next I removed all custom css and it was still happening.

    So I next reset all the theme and boom, it stopped (although the website now looks nothing like it should).

    I reverted to a backup from before all these alterations and and reset the theme will all plugins re-enabled and it stopped again. So I think it’s safe to say 100% it’s a theme issue.

    I’m now going to go through each section bit by bit and see if I can narrow it down, unless you can suggest some areas that might be causing it? I’m also wondering if it’s just changing text size rather than going bold?

    I’ll update


    Getting closer…

    It’s something in the “General Styling” section.

    If I reset just that section it stops, but I’m not sure what it causing it yet. As soon as just select the “Enfield Classic” predefined colour scheme it starts again.


    Cracked it…..

    Enfold > General Styling > Fonts > “Heading Font” & “Font for your body text” were both set to “Multi”.

    I swapped it to “Default” for both and it’s fixed it.

    Surprised as it’s a feature of Enfold you haven’t seen this before though?


    Glad to hear that you have this sorted out, I have seen these set to different fonts such as:
    I tried setting both to “Multi” on my demo site, but didn’t notice the issue like on your site:
    but my demo site doesn’t have all of the same settings, css, & plugins as your site, I’m glad this worked for you and I will take note of this should I see this issue again, thanks for sharing your solution.
    Unless there is anything else we can assist with on this issue, shall we close this then?

    Best regards,


    No all good thank you Mike, appreciate the help.
