I installed a font and clicked on cufon, but haven't seen any changes at all. I am using Typekit for the body font, but even with that turned off, cufon isn't picking up the headers.

Yes, it appears that it is. I turned off Typekit and loaded Sackers Gothic in Cufon, but header is coming up with Palatino.

Hey Peter, Cufon is indeed working.. I verified with Firebug... your h2 tags are being replaced

arpowers, how are they being replaced? From firebug, I see a font-highlight for Palatino, but I assume that is there from the original css. I'b put h1, h2, h3, h4, in Cufon and I haven't seen any of them come up Sackers. I've also put in the menu and that hasn't changed. I turned off Typekit by the way. I'd rather have Cufon on the headers and menu than use Typekit if that's what it comes down to.

I also have Platform on another site, appeals.me. I haven't done anything to the Base theme there and Cufon isn't showing up there either.

Your Post titles for instance are using Cufon.

Adam, Thanks for taking a look, but they still come up Palatino on my Mac. I also tried doing Cufon with the footer widget titles, but they are Palatino also. I looked on both Firefox and Safari.

I recommend an alternative in your case, it would be to disable Cufon completely and try sIFR instead. There is a plugin for this, see info here: http://www.bryanhada...beauty-of-sifr/ Thanks, Bryan

Bryan, Appreciate the suggestion, but I tried it and it didn't work. I guess Sacker's Gothic can only be used as an image. Thanks.

You did regenerate the cufon file for Sackers Gothic correct? You also would have to place it in the correct folder for it to work

It's a stretch, but maybe you need to clear your browser cache? Thanks, Bryan
