I’ve started using wordpress a few days ago because I wanted to have my own website, and after a lot of struggling against my hoster’s limitations, like the unability to use plugins communicating with other websites such as Akismet (but it’s free and there’s 10GB storage so I won’t complain); I found out that I can’t change the fonts of the site’s title, subtitle, etc without manually modifying the style’s CSS. Which, in my case, is Twentytwelve.
So I was wondering why there isn’t an advanced editor in WP already. I mean, there already are lots of plugins, but I can’t use any of them because they all use google web fonts or something equivalent, which is prohibited by my site’s host.
There are several things that could be done to change this. For example, adding a new “Typography/Fonts/Text design/whatever” panel in the Appearance category, that would allow users to edit their current theme’s style.css without going there manually.
A font manager would be great too, with uploading and deleting abilities; and the possibility to define several files (.ttf, .otf, .woff or .eot) as the “same font” so every browser can see the website correctly. Of course it’s a lot of work and it would take time, but it would make WP a lot better.
Or at least, I think so.
What do you think?
(ps: don’t slap me if this has already been proposed, I’ve only read the search results diagonally and didn’t find anything, also i didn’t think anyone had the same problem as me anyway)
