Google Fonts appearance in Safari

Recommended Posts

scientistsofmedia

I am noticing in the sites that I am making with DMS2 that google fonts look thin and pixelated in Safari compared to Firefox and Chrome. 

 

see my attached example... the top black bar is from Safari.  very light compared to the other 2.

 

here is a link to my site

is there a  way via CSS to make the fonts look bolder in safari?

DMS doesn't include Anti Alias to keep fonts consistent across browsers...not sure why.  Try this CSS and see if it works, the DMS support team provided some of this and I think I pulled some from other places.  It seems to work well.  However, I don't know that it covers every browser but the main ones at least.

 

/*Anti Alias*/

html, html a {

    -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;

 -moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;

    text-shadow: 1px 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.004);

}

this actually made the text look thin and pixelated in all browsers.

Hmmm... I use it all the time and it seems to make it pretty consistent across browsers although still slightly lighter in Safari.  If you are using a very thin font weight you might bump it up and see if the achieves what you are looking to do.  Otherwise maybe the DMS team can offer a suggestion.

html, html a {
-webkit-font-smoothing: subpixel-antialiased;
}

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
