Tumblr theme overriding post's text format

Somehow my tumblr theme is overriding the formatting I have done to my texts posts (in html). It has decided to unbold everything that was bolded and make everything the same size, even though there was header text in the post. In tumblr itself you see it just like it was formatted to be seen, but in the tumblr theme (blog) everything appears the same format even though it isn't.

I know that there is a line of code inside of my theme overriding the formatting that has, but I have no clue where to find it or what to add to change it. If someone knows how I can change this I would appreciate the solution.

Maybe this is a little too basic but haven't found anything online about how to go around it.

Thanks in advance!

Answer

Use the "Custom CSS". It should override any CSS applied to the theme.

  1. Go to the theme customization page (looks like; "www.tumblr.com/customize/yourBlogName")
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the Customization section in the left. Click the "Advanced Options" now paste your CSS under where it says "ADD CUSTOM CSS".

Example; h2 { font-size: 1.5em; color: #6ca516 }

If that does not work use !important (like; font-size: 1.5em !important;). Change the number in font-size and color as you want.

Note:
It should override any CSS applied because in a Tumblr theme's HTML, {CustomCSS} (where all your "Custom CSS" goes) comes after all the other styles.

If you add your rules just before </style> in the theme's HTML, you will also override the styles applied before.
