    Hey there,

    I read through the forum, but all solutions did not work for me.

    I simply want to use another google-font in my main menu, additionally to the “Heading Font” in the theme options.

    So 2 different google-fonts. One set in heading fonts (Antic), one set for my main menu (Amatic SC).

    So I installed both in the register-admin-options.php, set up “Antic” in my theme option and added following in my quick CSS:

    @import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Amatic+SC);

    .main_menu ul {
    font-family: font-family: 'Amatic SC' !important;

    But the menu font is not changing at all. Am I missing something?

    The website is http://www.backtothegrindstone.de

    Thank you for your help and kind Regards,



    Little update, I put in

    @import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Amatic+SC);

    .main_menu ul {
    font-family: 'Amatic SC' !important;

    But that did not work too. :(

    By the way, any other standard font like “verdana” or “arial” works, but none of the google fonts.


    Okay I fixed it by putting the line

    @import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Amatic+SC);

    into the style.css file. Although it is not recommended to edit this file, nothing else worked.

    It seemed the @import function was not overwritten or accepted by the custom.css nor the quick css.


    Withdrawal – safari screws it up, did only work for firefox.

    Now I am back to zero…


    I use this plugin for google web fonts:


    You can add custom css within the plugin to identify the element you want to change


    Sounds good, I will give it a try.

    Appreciate your help! :)


    Works perfectly, thank you a lot!!!
