Using Web Safe Fonts
Web-safe fonts are fonts that can adapt to any browser on any device. By using these types of fonts, web designers and developers ensure that the intended font will always display properly on a web page, even if these fonts aren’t installed on the user’s computer.
The following fonts are the best web safe fonts for HTML and CSS:
- Arial (sans-serif)
- Verdana (sans-serif)
- Tahoma (sans-serif)
- Trebuchet MS (sans-serif)
- Times New Roman (serif)
- Georgia (serif)
- Garamond (serif)
- Courier New (monospace)
- Brush Script MT (cursive)
Using Google Fonts
Thanks to the Google Fonts library, we have access to a web repository of over 900 quality fonts ready to use. They’re free to use (even for commercial projects), pre-hosted (so they won’t take up your server’s resources), and downloadable (you can use them in print).
How to manually install Google Fonts on your WordPress website:
Step 1: Find the font you want to add to your website
To get started, browse the Google Fonts directory and choose the font you want to use on your WordPress website. If you already have a specific typeface, you can simply search for it using the search box in the right sidebar.
Once you know which font you’re going with, copy its name and return to your website’s Customizer settings.
2. Insert the Google Font’s name into the Font Family field
Make sure you use the exact name of the font as it is called in Google Fonts.
Publish your Customizer changes and visit your site. The selected Google Font should now load and apply into your pages.
Using Custom Fonts
In order to use a custom font, you need a plugin that helps you easily embed the custom fonts files (woff2, woff, ttf, svg, eot, otf) in your WordPress website. The Custom Fonts plugin or the Use Any Font plugin should do the trick. Once you successfully embedded the font files, all you need to do it change the font name under Appearance > Customize > Fonts > Base Font Family.
The theme’s color palette consists of 6 colors which can be changed via Appearance > Customize > Colors. The colors defined here are being applied automatically across the site.
Under Appearance > Customize > Header, you can:
- Show/Hide Search Icon
- Show/Hide My Account Icon
Under Appearance > Customize > Footer, you can:
- Set different colors for the text and background color
Under Appearance > Customize > Shop, you can:
- Change products display (Grid or List)
- Change product pagination (Classic or Load More Button)
The theme comes with one menu location for both the header’s desktop and mobile navigation.
Menus can be created and assigned their respective menu location via Appearance > Menus.
