Hi,

 

I use Typekit to get museo slab font instead of the standard fonts on my website http://bjornhedensjo.se/

 

It works on the entire site except for one place – I seem unable to get Typekit to work in the caption below the picture to the right on the site (the "Highlight"). As far as I can tell I've used all the relevant selectors (such as .highlight-subhead) in Typekit but I still can't get it to work – override CSS – in that particular place. 

 

Would be very grateful for any ideas on how to fix this.

Could you add in the selectors you have used to the PageLines paste service and paste the link into the reply please and we can take a look

I'm unsure what the PageLines paste service is, but the selectors I used are the following:

 

.highlight-subhead
 
body
 
h1
 
h2
 
h3
 
h3.highlight-subhead.subhead
 
h4
 
h5
 
h6
 
media="all"

I think your problem is that you have this:

 

<h3 class="highlight-subhead subhead">

<font>

<font class="">Journalist, consultant, aspiring psychologist at KI. </font>

<font>Author of A perfect night.</font>

</font>

</h3>

 

Why do you <font><font class=""> after the H3 highlight-subhead tag ?

This is likely your problem.

Thought I was about to solve it, tried different selectors in Typekit and some changes in the custom CSS, but none of it worked. Ended up using one of the fonts in pagelines that was acceptable in that particular place. So I've given up, but that's ok :)

I had no issue with TypeKit, when I did a quick test. Therefore, if you can provide the exact steps you taken to try and get Typekit to work, we may be able to see your problem.

 

However, I think using Google Webfonts is better in my opinion, you can download our old plugin from here which installs about 500+ more fonts.

 

https://www.dropbox....lefonts (2).zip

 

Just download, install the plugin like any other Wordpress plugin and once activated, goto Typography and your fonts list should now contain a lot more fonts.
