Support » Theme: Hemingway » Hero text/site title font

  • I like this theme a lot and would prefer to use it rather than any other, but the ability to change the site title font up in the header strangely absent. Is it possible to add, in the editor, a customisation category above ‘Header’ in the Customise menu? I’d like try something other than Raleway- may be a thin serif font.

    It would be nice to have this font choice function built in and not to have to edit the CSS, so that customisations would stay put through theme updates.

    If there are no plans for that, I’d be extremely grateful for followable instructions on exactly how to do it via the CSS. I’ve read every post on all the 24 pages and the few times this question has been asked, the answer hasn’t been specific enough to allow me to go ahead and fix things.

    Alternatively, can anyone suggest a plugin in which the function I need isn’t a ‘premium’ feature? Have tried ‘Use Any Font’ (doesn’t support this them), ‘Easy Google Fonts’ (requires purchase of another module), ‘CSS Hero’ and ‘Visual CSS Editor (‘Yellow Pencil’)’. All these either don’t do the job or will only do it with the paid version, and since I’m making this site pro bono for a non-profit, that makes things difficult.

    Hi @1stlorient,

    I have no plans on adding a setting for the font family of the site title, but it’s easy enough to change with custom CSS. Go to Appearance → Customize → Additional CSS (the menu labels might be different in your language) and add the code below:

    .blog-title a {
    font-family: Georgia, serif;
    font-weight: 400;
    letter-spacing: 0;
    text-transform: none;

    Change Georgia to the font family you want to use. You’ll need a plugin (like Easy Google Fonts) to use the fonts on Google Fonts.

    Thanks Anders. But don’t CSS additions disappear each time the theme is updated?

    @1stlorient Changes made in the Additional CSS field in the Customizer persist between theme updates.
