Adding a new font

    Hi All!

    I’ve had a look through the forum already for threads about this, and most of them either talk about changing just the header font, or writing code to do with the font family.

    I’m designing a website for a Dyslexic association, and they’ve asked me to use a specific font, that helps dyslexic readers. So I’d want to use it for the body of all my pages if possible, and I’m not sure which font family it comes from so I don’t know what code to write? Here is the font itself:

    I’m guessing to upload it to my wp-content folder, and then…? I’m not sure what to do next!

    Thanks in advance! 🙂

    Hi Prasanna,

    Thanks for the link. I’ve read it over a couple of times and I don’t really understand the terms used etc. I really don’t know too much about all the hooks , codes, and stylesheets etc.

    Does what he say apply to the body of the site, or just the header texts? Also, if it’s not a google web font, it doesn’t seem as clear to do.

    Sorry, I’m sounding pretty clueless, but I’m really not too sure what to do!

    I would upload the font to font-squirrel and create an @font-face kit. Then you can upload it, use an @import statement in your child-theme stylesheet, and then style whatever elements you desire to be displayed using said font.

    I’m really not trying to be a wise guy by saying this, but if you don’t understand child-themes and stylesheets and such, you may be better off paying someone fifty bucks to do it for you. I like doing stuff myself too because it’s the only way to learn, but it’s not a time efficient method by any means 🙂 Good luck!

    I’ll second that.

    But, yeah, if it’s urgent–sub it out, and then reverse engineer it so you can do it yourself in future.
