Using "Google Fonts for Wordpress" plug-in
I have installed the "Google Fonts for Wordpress" plug-in, but I cannot seem to get it to work.
I can't find a plugin with that name. Is it WP Google Fonts Plugin?
If so it looks like you need to create custom css to replace a themes fonts with your new google fonts.
Can you outline the steps you took to install and where you ran into problems?
WP Google Fonts
Thanks for the quick reply.
Yes, it is WP Google Fonts.
This is what I put in the WPGF Control Panel:
And this is what I put in the styles.css doc:
That's as far as I got, I'm afraid.
I Found the Solution!
Thought I would post the solution as 35 people viewed my post and nobody replied. This is fairly new stuff I believe, but quite cool if you are tired of the same ol' fonts.
The solution is simple:
You have to create custom CSS for the places on your site where you want to use the fonts, enter it into the Google Font Control Panel, and then hand code the HTML when you build your pages and posts.
The reason for this is that the Socrates theme uses the H1, H2, etc. and you may not want those to be effected.
See image below:
Sorry for not replying, I just got back from vacation.
Glad it worked out..
All I care about is readability.. fancy fonts are usually a big mistake on a website, so I've always avoided them.
Changing Fonts in Posts
Is there a simpler way to change fonts with a plugin without going into CSS?
Socrates > Styling will change your primary body font.
But you shouldn't bother changing fonts.. Only focus on creating valuable content and backlinks, that's all that matters.
Thanks Dan, have a great holiday!
thanks for the answers provided above, but I was wondering what if I wanted to change the size of the font.
Actually, the default font on Socrates doesn't look so bad, but a little bit too small.
Please, can you give some tips on how to increase the size of the font on all pages?
If possible I would appreciate a lot getting the piece of coding I need to change and the place where I have to paste it.
Thanks a lot for your help!
We have many posts on this.. did you use the search box for: increase font size
