When we are using CSS @font-face for WordPress, we usually don’t get the desired result that we may be expecting while we are using Mozilla Firefox.
Firefox 3.5 supported TrueType and OpenType fonts. In Firefox 3.6 support for a new font format – the Web Open Font Format, or WOFF is been added. You can use this font format to work for WordPress if you are using Firefox.
You can convert you fonts to woff format from http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface/generator
After you get your font coverted use the following code to import your fonts for all browsers.

If you are the administrator for a blog or a site developed using WordPress and you have by any chance forgot or misplaced the password required for login, this post is definitely going to help you.
There are two ways you can change or reset the password for your login id. Both are described steps by step below.
The first process is as below:
- On the login page you will get a link for forgot password. Click the link.

This will send you a link to your mail box where you can change your password and thereafter log on to your account.
But sometimes this doesn’t help and there is a possibility that you have to follow the second way; but this one you can follow only if you are the owner/administrator/webmaster of your site, because for this you will need to have the access to your database to which you site or blog is linked to.
