WordPress 3.2 uses Arial in the admin, marring an otherwise beautiful design. Use Helvetica instead instead of its bastard offspring.
WordPress 3.2.1 introduced a patch that uses the
sans-serif keyword. This plugin is thankfully no longer necessary.
- Will this plugin remove Arial from the WordPress admin area?
Yes. It’s no longer there to remove. Unless you’re on Windows, but a WordPress plugin can’t fix that for you.
- Can you also remove the scourge of Arial from the rest of the Internet?
If only I could. Be the change you want to see in the world.
- I don’t see the plugin listed
If you’re on a Multisite Network, activate this plugin across the network in the Network admin area so that all of your users can bask in the glow of improved typography.
