Change site title into small caps

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Hi,

I'd like to change my site title into small caps. In another post in this forum, I found this code for changing a header into small caps:

h1 {   font-variant: small-caps; }

I tried it and it worked. Then I exchanged "h1" for "site-title," but that didn't work.

Does anyone know what the correct descriptor would be?

Many thanks!

This is because h1 is an element and is therefore referred to by the element name only - "h1".

On Squarespace 7.1, the site title is an "a" element and has an id attribute of "site-title". As "site-title" isn't the name of an element, it needs a prefix. To tell the CSS that is is an id, we prefix it with a hash (#) character. The CSS would therefore be:

#site-title {
  font-variant: small-caps;
}

Hi,

I'd also like to change my name in the footer (after the copyright symbol) into small caps and 0.04em letter spacing (like my site title). Is that possible?
