Support » Theme: Matala » Want to Use Google Fonts with Matala

  • I would like to alter the header.php and the css stylesheet as appropriate to change the font for the header text of my website

    I am also trying to use the google fonts plugin by Adrian. However, it seems I have a few problems (btw, I’m not a super experienced php or css programmer by any means):

    1.) the h1, h2 tags are not specified appropriately to correctly display what I tell my google fonts plugin to display (like specify a certain font for my “p” tags and specify another font for my “h1” tags. See below an excerpt from my css style sheet:

    [ Moderator Note: Please post code or markup snippets between backticks or use the code button. ]

    /* =Reset HTML
    -------------------------------------------------------------- */
    html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe,
    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, blockquote, pre,
    a, abbr, acronym, address, big, cite, code,
    del, dfn, em, font, img, ins, kbd, q, s, samp,
    small, strike, strong, sub, sup, tt, var,
    b, u, i, center,
    dl, dt, dd, ol, ul, li,
    fieldset, form, label, legend,
    table, caption, tbody, tfoot, thead, tr, th, td {
    	background: transparent;
    	border: 0;
    	margin: 0;
    	padding: 0;
    	vertical-align: baseline;
    body {
    	line-height: 1;
    h6 {
    	clear: both;
    	font-weight: normal;
    ol, ul {
    	list-style: none;
    blockquote {
    	quotes: none;
    blockquote:after {
    	content: '';
    	content: none;
    del {
    	text-decoration: line-through;
    table {
    	border-collapse: collapse;
    	border-spacing: 0;
    a img {
    	border: none;
    html {
    	overflow-y: scroll;
    article, aside, details, figcaption, figure,
    footer, header, hgroup, menu, nav, section {
    	display: block;
    <strong>2.) I am not sure how to change the font-family script. Under the header file of my css style sheet I have this:</strong>
    /* =Header
    -------------------------------------------------------------- */
    #branding {
    	margin: 0 auto;
    	position: relative;
    	width: 960px;
    #site-description {
    	color: #fff;
    	font-family: Georgia, serif;
    	font-weight: normal;
    #site-title {
    	padding-top: 25px;
    #site-title a {
    	color: #fff;
    	display: block;
    	font-size: 64px;
    	line-height: 62px;
    	margin-bottom: 5px;
    	text-shadow: -2px -2px 4px #000;
    #site-description {
    	display: block;
    	font-size: 32px;
    	line-height: 34px;
    	margin: 0;
    	text-shadow: -2px -2px 4px #000;

    3.) Finally, I’m not sure where in my header.php file I am supposed to insert the google fonts plugin api code. The header.php script is as follows (as you can see I tried inserting the google fonts plugin api directory in there):

     * @package WordPress
     * @subpackage Matala
    <!DOCTYPE html>

    <html id="ie7" <?php language_attributes(); ?>>

    <html id="ie8" <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
    <!--[if IE 9]>
    <html id="ie9" <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
    <!--[if !(IE 7) | !(IE 8) | !(IE 9)  ]><!-->

    <?php wp_head(); ?>

    <div id="page" class="hfeed">

    			<nav id="access" role="navigation">

    			</nav><!-- #access -->
    		</header> <!-- #branding -->
    		<div id="inner-wrapper">
    			<div id="main">
