Reading tools stylesheet (rt.css)

Postby helenw » Mon Aug 14, 2006 4:24 pm

Hi there,

We're wanting to change the font to 'Arial' in the H1 and H2 and have defined a font in the rt.css however nothing has changed once we have uploaded (see below). Have we missed something?

Hi Helen,

Are you using an older version of OJS? The Reading Tools CSS mistakenly wasn't included in older versions of OJS. Either upgrade to the newest release (currently OJS 2.1.1) or modify the styles/common.css main stylesheet again. (Alternately, feel free to override the default styles using a journal-specific stylesheet, which can be uploaded in Journal Settings step 5.)
