CSS for Comments area and entries?

    Still tweaking the CSS at paulainchina.com

    Managed to tweak all fonts to be the times serif family but I can’t seem to get the font to change from arial on the comments.

    I have been able to do it in firefox with the developer tools but when I copy and paste into the custom css area the changes don’t take effect. I’ve checked the punctuation and it seems correct. I know it is something stupid on my part, but my hair is getting thinner and thinner.

    Input/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    When I tinker with the web developer tools in firefox I can get it to change easily … but if I paste those entries into the Graphene Custom CSS the changes don’t take effect. Wanting make the font “times” serif and a bit larger. No luck.

    Okay, usually when something like this happens, it is down to one of three possibilities:

    1) There is CSS being loaded later that overrides your declaration. (I couldn’t find any.)

    2) A plugin is applying its own styles. (But you don’t appear to be running any plugins that affect just comments.)

    3) Something else entirely.

    I’m a bit lost as to why those codes aren’t working for you, but it has been a long week.

    Try adding !important to your declaration to see if that makes the difference.

    I’ll try important! I should have done before posting… Thanks very much!

    Well I tinkered and tried “!important” to no avail… I’d love to know what the issue is… we can be happy with a different font for comments. Thanks for your input and help.

    I tried one more time and was able to edit all of the elements… now I can finally paste the generated CSS into the child theme.
