BoldGrid - Customizing The Site Title Fonts

  • Answered
Can additional fonts be installed along with the site title fonts preloaded, ie Google fonts?
Is there a character map for the preloaded fonts in the site title area?
Hello, Thanks for the question about the BoldGrid customizer site title fonts. If you wanted to add your own fonts you would need to edit the style.css with the font you're trying to use as well as the header.php in order to add the Google font. In the header.php file, you would add the code after the header tag (the code is provided for you in Google Fonts):
 <link href='' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css '>
This would allows the theme to load the font. Next you would need to edit stylesheet.css and define WHERE you're using the new font. For example:
.h1 site-title {
font-family: 'Open Sans', Roboto, sans-serif;
This would change the H1 fonts into the Roboto font. If you're making changes like this to the theme, then you should be using WordPress Child themes. Themes are like versions of plugins and WordPress: they always update. If you make these custom changes and then update the theme, your changes would be lost. As you can see, making this kind of change requires some knowledge of modifying the CSS and editing the theme files. The theme files are always found in the wp-content folder under themes. In regards to your question on the character map, there is not one provided, though you could probably look up the font and then find one for it on the internet. I hope that helps to answer your questions! If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know. Regards, Arnel C.
