    I’m setting up a new website using Evolve, and I’ve customised the fonts and colours using the Typography tab – however I can’t see a way to customise the caption fonts.

    The captions appear in the same font as the body text, and on posts and pages with a lot of text, they can sometimes appear to be part of the body text. Is there a way to change captions on the templates?

    We don’t have such a feature yet, although I think it is a very good idea to implement. If you send me a link to your website with examples of captions, you wish to change and an explanation of what it is supposed to look like, I will be happy to offer you the CSS code to add to Additional CSS that will take care of it.

    OK, thanks. I’m still working on the website, but there’s a test page here that has a caption:

    I’d like the caption font to be a bit smaller – maybe Quicksand with the font variant 600 and the font size 0.7rem, in the same colour as the secondary links and quotes, which is #8be6f4

    Thanks

    It is Quicksand already, so no change needed there. For everything else try this:
    figcaption {
    font-weight: 600;
    font-size: 0.7rem;
    }
    Add it to Additional CSS and save. It should do it.
