I cant edit the font of my Navigation

  • Hi Im trying to edit the font of my navigation on my site. I have tried using the CSS editor but nothing seems to work. I put in the changes into the editor and then hit save and then I go the site and nothing has changed. I also tried using the plugin “font-face” however when I put my CSS into “font-face” I get this error:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/content/74/10778474/html/wp-content/plugins/wp-font-face/fontface.plugin.php:228) in /home/content/74/10778474/html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 875

    Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

    FTP into your site (or whatever file management application your host provides) & delete the wp-content/plugins/wp-font-face folder.

    What theme are you using? Where did you download it from?

    I deleted the font-face folder and now the plugin is gone. I am just using 2012 right now. Im using the CSS editor that comes with JetPack but when I add CSS it doesnt change the font at all. I can change the color of somethings on the page but I cant change the font of the Navigation.

    which font are you trying to use?

    are you using default font like arial, serif or something from third party?

    if you use google fonts or third party fonts did you write code so server can locate those fonts? did you upload those fonts if not google web fonts ?

    it seems you didnt use system default fonts arial, serif.

    my first idea would be to use
    arial as your font family and then see whether it shows or not

    do you know the name of naivigaton class?

    u must correctly use navigation class in your css.
    .main-menu li a {
    font-family: arial

    Ok I located the code through “Inspect Element” with Firefox and the new font that I added in the CSS editor has been added to the Code of the website. So it seems that the CSS editor is making changes to the website.

    I am not using a default font but the next question is where do I upload the font with FTP? I know how to access my FTP but what folder do I need to upload this new font to?

    It’s best to create a folder in your theme or Child Theme if you’re not using your own theme, then put your fonts in that newly created folder.
