Nerd Party: How to Use Custom Fonts
Jessica posted this question a few days ago on Twitter…
So today I’m going to teach you how to add custom fonts to your blog from the Google Font Directory.
There are two ways to use custom fonts in Blogger. First, since Blogger is owned by Google, they have custom fonts already available in the Template Designer. Choose the text you want to change, choose the font, BAM, DONE!
But, if you’re adventurous and are looking to add fonts into the stylesheet yourself, here’s how…
1. Choose your font from google.com/webfonts/
2. Click ‘quick use’ if you are just using one font or ‘add to collection’ if you’re using more than one.
3. Next you will get two pieces of code…
font-family: ‘Delius’, cursive;
Adding custom fonts to WordPress works in the same way. You will add the first piece of code between the head tags in your header file (WordPress does not require that extra slash at the end) and the second piece of code goes into your stylesheet.
PLEASE NOTE: I’m happy to provide instructions, but due to my busy schedule I am not available for tech help. So, if you are new to coding, please make sure to save your template files before trying tutorials :)
