Fonts and Spacing

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, I have been working for just a little over a week trying to migrate our site from HTML to Pagelines. I have worked with other wordpress sites and templates and I have found Pagelines to be very interesting. My question is: If you look at our old site http://www.syscononline.com and then out our new site http://www.syscononline.com/wordpress you can see that the font and the spacing are not the same. I hate to say it, but I have almost given up trying to get this thing to be the same. I have tried changing the font in the setup and in the CSS code. For some reason it is fighting against me. The main thing is the spacing. On the new page, it looks like there is a space and a half between lines, we had rather not have that. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Paul

Paul, in the settings, when you selected a font, did you notice the Edit button under the font selected? It should give you the opportunity to widen or condense font spacing. Also, have you tried our GoogleFonts plugin, which would give you a much wider range of choices?

Hey rangelone, yep, I have looked at that and I have spent hours playing around with the options in both of those. I guess I will go back and try again. The spacing is not a show stopper, but it's just a little frustrating. Thanks for the suggestion.

What's up Paul! Glad you're enjoying PageLines. I took a look at both your sites and would like to add-on to above. On your old site, "line-spacing" isn't set (it's actually using old table markup) or, the space between the lines of text. What you're seeing on your new site is actually closer to what's considered "best practice," as a proper line height is typically 1.5 times the size of the font. So, to change this up, smack this into your Custom CSS section located under PageLines--->Custom Code .hentry, .fpost .post-excerpt { line-height: 1.47em; } Presently, it's at 1.67em so you can lower as you like to get what you're looking for. Hope this helps man!
