    Hi there – I’d like to change the sitewide font to gills sans (as per my client) Actually – they have a really ugly font they want me to use (that I have the file for) but I think I’ve gotten them to accept Gills. How can I change this – it is not an option in the admin.

    Thanks!

    Hey there.

    Are you referring to header fonts or the paragraph font for the theme?

    Here’s a list of web-safe fonts that you can use by just editing the paragraph and header font codes via css: http://www.fonttester.com/help/list_of_web_safe_fonts.html

    If you indeed need to add a custom font to the site, you’ll have to use some advanced CSS, which can be learned here: http://www.css3.info/preview/web-fonts-with-font-face/

    Otherwise, just tell you’re client that there’s really no need to go above and beyond the standard fonts that come with the theme. There’s a TON they’ve provided, and to be quite honest, there’s a few that look pretty damn close to Gills.

    Good luck!

    Hi wtflovelife,

    Yes, you can change the font to Gill Sans. What you would need to do is add the following code to your “Quick CSS” option under Angular > Styling.

    This snippet will change the headings only:

    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, .hero-text, blockquote, legend, #top .slideshow_caption h1 {
    font-family: "Gill Sans MT";
    }

    This will change the body text:

    body {
    font: 13px/1.65em font-family: "Gill Sans MT", "HelveticaNeue","Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
    }

    Also, you may find it necessary to change the “Heading Font” under Angular > Styling to “no custom font”.

    Regards,

    Mya
