Help changing the font of summary block

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://www.hornstrength.com

Pulling my hair out over this one. 

I set up my blog with a custom author bio at the bottom. It's basically pulling in a summary block from another blog. 

Here's the guide I followed: https://www.bigcatcreative.com/blog/how-to-create-a-blog-signature-in-squarespace

Here's a template blog post with the summary block at the bottom for the author bio:

The summary block is pulling from here (another blog):

I'm happy with it, except I'd like to change the font family for the summary to 'Roboto' and I can't do it. 

I suspect it has something to do with the custom CSS I added to change the font for the body of my blog posts from the site default to "minion'.

.blog-item-content.e-content * {
    font-family: 'minion' !important; font-size: 22px;

That seems to override every attempt to change just the summary block font. 

Thanks for any guidance you can provide!

Use this code

.summary-excerpt.summary-excerpt-only p {
    font-family: 'Roboto' !important;


Thank you. That worked for most of the text, but it didn't change the font for the link at the bottom (still Minion). Seems like if I make any modifications (e.g. Bold, Underline, Link, etc.) the font will not be affected.
