I am just working on setting up my site's default fonts. And since PageLines assigns fonts dynamically through the Admin panel, I am a bit perplexed as to the best way to vary my fonts. Let me explain.... Normally one would have the same font for every level of H tag. However, my designer has switched things up a bit and assigned 1 font family to H1-H3 and another for H4-H6 (Ompf!). So should I just assign one of the 2 font sets in the Pagelines control panel and modify the others (somewhere) via an over ride in my Custom CSS file? Help @simple_mama!

If you want total control over them, you should write custom CSS. This will override any other size set within the theme settings. I even override the

size, font, etc, in my custom CSS. :D

Hey Jen (@simple_mama): That's what I figured. So I guess it really doesn't matter what is set in Pagelines if the intent is to let Designers go crazy? ;-)... Mind if I peek at your site's CSS? :-)

@WebWerx: I concur that more font and typography control would be better. IF you want a very easy way to manipulate your CSS without too much coding, I recommend using Microthemer in conjunction with Pagelines Framework. Great tool -- especially if your CSS is a bit rusty like mine. It gives you font size control as well as font effects (like dropshadow, etc.) Bing "Microthemer". You'll find it.

Thanks @wpnew. I am past the capabilities of Microthemer. I actually use FireBug in conjunction with CODA. Not sure if Microthemer allows one to write to anything but style.css (IE custom.css). BING? What's that? ;-O

Hey @simple_mama: I am just getting back to this and muddling my way through things. The more I think about it, the more I think I should only assign my basic fonts in the Pagelines settings (the stuff that gets outputted in dynamic CSS). The rest should be written straight into my Custom.css file. Does that make sense Jenny?
