    Hi,

    I want to use my own font that isn't in the theme I have. Is that possible? If so, how? And will that be really complicated?

    Please HELP!!!

    Thanks. And I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Tia

    If you are familiar with CSS you can use @font-face to load your own font, here is an article that explains that a little better:

    You need to have the rights to use the font on the web, so be sure you have that first.

    You can also use Google Web Fonts:

    Hope that helps

    I recommend Google Fonts. Google offers hundreds of free fonts that you can easily use with your theme. Implementing Google Fonts is quite easy. It usually takes just a couple of line entries.

    For example, using the Questrial font:

    First, you need to add a stylesheet to your theme's header.php.

    <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Questrial' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

    Second, you need to apply the font to your style.css.

    h1, h2 {
    font-family: 'Questrial', sans-serif;
    }

    And you're good to go.
