Hi Guys,

I was wondering if I could change the headings on the sidebar here http://www.thedancingsoul.ie/?page_id=749 so the font is the same as the one where it reads "The Dancing Soul" on the header image ?

I have attached an image with the font on it

The font on the heading is certainly not a standard font, so you have limited options. The old-school (read: not recommended) is to create an image for each of your sidebar heading using your favourite graphics package and then use one of the many Image Replacement techniques to show the image instead of the text.

The other option, if you have the copyright permissions to use the font, is to create a font-face kit from the originaly font (maybe a TrueType font). I think Font-Squirrel allow you to upload a font and they'll create a font-face kit for you to download, include in your CSS and then use throughout your site - but as I say - you must have permission to use the font

A better option might be to browser the hundreds of Google fonts for one that compliments your header font and use that for the side bar. Good typography design is all about matching fonts - not overwhelming us with just one :)

The easiest way is to ask whoever designed the header.

Alternatively, you could use a website such as identifont.com where you answer a series of questions about your font, and it tried to identify it, but if it's an obscure one, that may not help

In your style.css, around line 531, you have a CSS rule for .sidebar h5. Just add colour, font-size and font-weight:

.sidebar h5 {
   color: #6F9C3F;
   font-weight:bold; 
   font-size: 1.2em; 
}
