    Hello rpmartins,

    Try deactivating cufon in Dashboard -> Method -> General Settings. This will let us know whether it is a problem with cufon or not.

    Alrighty, what you can do here is create a new cufon.js file and include latin supplements as seen on their homepage, After creating the new font file you would then drop it into /wp-content/themes/method/lib/scripts/fonts/ to overwrite the old one.

    Or you can switch to a websafe font by using our skin generator,

    Or you can also use a plugin such as WP Google Fonts,, which includes fonts through @font-face.

  5. is not easy when you are not a programmer ;)

    I wonder if you can take any file and add the theme InFocus in Method on the subject, because I never had this problem in InFocus

    The easiest way would be to switch to a websafe font rpmartins. Check out our skin editor for changing the font,

  7. I tested all the skins and the one that worked was the paint.

    I tried to change the skin by choosing a font (websafe), however the end result was horrible, very different from the original default theme.

    I am wanting to use the skin deepblue.css.

    The result is far from expected as can be seen in the picture below.

    Any help is welcome, as I have time to change our current theme (InFocus) for the Method theme.

    I also suggest that implementation of new versions for Latin characters

    I would recommend you to install the Google font plugin, and check which of the fonts that they provide includes your special characters:

    I think that plugin is quite easy to use. If you need help when identifying the CSS selectors of the elements of your website, just leave a message here and we will help you.

  9. hello,

    The suggested plugin is up and running, among which are the settings I could not make the change to appear the special characters, I believe it should be entered manually.

    I would appreciate if help identify which line of css file should be included, and the suggestion of a font similar to the original theme.

    In the "Settings" screen of the plugin, you will find a section named "Font 1 Options". In the "Select Font" dropdown, select your desired font. Then, in the "Elements you want to assign this font to" field, select all the headlines elements.

    Now, go to the theme options panel. In the "General Settings" page, you will find a field named "Disable Cufon". Disable it, so Cufon does not interfere with the Google fonts plugin.

    Regarding a similar font, I think "Cantarell" or "Droid Sans" could be similar to the theme's default one.

  11. Hi,

    This theme are ruining my life =P

    I really can not understand why the difficulty of getting a score equal to InFocus.

    The current theme has no problem with regards to Latin characters Cufon works perfectly and making an interesting visual appeal.

    If you can not let the titles of the fonts I have to leave the theme Method.

    These suggestions have been set, the result is below.

    What's the problem with the last 2 screenshots that you uploaded? I can see that there are no missing characters in the title.

  14. The problem is that it looks like the native pattern of the theme.

    Has no visual appeal and runs much of the original default theme.

    If you do not really work as Latin characters in the original pattern is not what I would have acquired.

    There would be no need to install the plugin google fonts, because the first test only disabling Cufon characters usually appeared, however, is very different from the original proposal of the theme Method.

    Perhaps creating a new file cufon.js can work, but I have no idea how to do this on the site provided earlier.

    Here is a good tutorial on how to create your font file,

    When your done you can paste it into /wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/lib/scripts/fonts/ and it should display in the skin editor.

  16. Thanks for the tutorial helped a lot.

    I think the problem is solved, the result obtained come down right next to the default theme.
