    First things first: thank you Anders NorΓ©n for this theme!

    I think I’ll update my website, at last. Since I’m a brand designer and not a dev, I’ve been looking for years for an elegant solution I can customize without getting crazy πŸ™‚

    And your theme is super super elegant.

    I have just created a child theme using Child Theme Configurator.
    I’ve added the LINK tag into the header.php of my child theme.
    I’ve also tried β€” with no success β€” to find the code I need to change β€” if possibile, of course β€” to avoid loading fonts from Google and the code I have to change to avoid CSS using those google fonts (I’ll then add mine, for using Fontstand’s fonts).

    Thanks!

  • I’ve partially found a way:

    1) I’ve added a LINK tag into header.php (child theme folder) to download the fonts I need from Fontstand

    2) I’ve used Appearance β†’ Customize β†’ Fonts to customize body & headers fonts. I haven’s tried it yet, but I suppose I can customize fonts for other tags β€” blockquote, mainly β€” just adding some code to mu child theme CSS style.

    3) the only thing I still need to find a solution for is to avoid the download of Google web fonts. Non existent ones, in fact. Since the theme is now using font names set in Appearance β†’ Customize β†’ Fonts, but those names are those of Fontstand’s web fonts, not of Google web fonts πŸ™‚

    Anyway, this theme is just great!
    Have I already told you? πŸ™‚

    Best,

    Solved.
    I’ve just found that with no Body & Headings font selected, there’s no output of any code for Google web fonts loading. So I opted to use CSS and not this feature to set my fonts from Fontstand.
