Is Platform the right choice? and Italics causing problems!

Question

Posted · Report post

Hi there, I am using Pagelines Platform 1.4.2 free edition for a very simple site. First question is, is this the best one to use, for this simple site? http://cliffordirving.com/ ------------------- 2nd question: I am having an issue with italics, I found the answer via email support but got to a dead end and was directed here... See: http://cliffordirving.com/12for2012 Bottom of this page for an example see, search for "There will be No italics above!" -- It is pale blue so is not readily visible. -------------------------------------- CSS style: h1 em, h2 em, h3 em, h4 em, h5 em, h6 em, #nav em { font-style: italic; text-transform: lowercase; You will want to make text-transform = none for the text to show up correctly. >>> This setting is not available for the free version. And currently, until the site is making money, as it's so simple I intend to stay on the free version (for the time being). I could hack the CSS setting but that is not a good way to do it. Any ideas will be super helpful, thanks.

You have to activate the child theme.

I did that and it did some strange reversal thing, Italics were everywhere. I disabled Google fonts. No difference. This site page and others (but not the front page) all have this strange behavior?

I think I have fixed it. Strange how this behavior arose in the first place. I reset the theme back to default and was able to cure with child theme. Thanks!
