Hi,

I'm trying to change both the header and main text fonts to a couple of different Google Fonts to customize the template a bit, but I can't figure out how to do this in the Kiji template settings. Just selecting a Google Font in the template administrator doesn't seem to do anything.

Also, the fonts on the Left Menu don't look at all like the demo (not uppercase, not right font, just plain ol' arial).

Please help.

Thanks!

Hello Devin,

Is it possible to have a link to troubleshoot the left menu?
Also which font did you choose?

Hi Krikor,

Got the left menu item problem figured out, thanks.(hadn't selected the font that was hardcoded into the template from the template menu).

My question now is do I have to make changes to the template itself to change the fonts or is there an easier override?

Thanks!

By default all changes should be made into your custom.css file. This way when you update your template you won't lose any changes.

now you should enter something like:
body, textarea, input, .sans { font-family: 'NEW FONT FAMILY', sans-serif!important; }

for the secondary font use:
h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6,.btn, .label { font-family: 'OTHER NEW FONT FAMILY', sans-serif!important; }

The !important will ensure the font overrides and will help you avoid over-specifying your css.

Got it! That is super helpful. Thank you so much! One more question: What If I don't want the font on the main menu to be the same as the body text (changed when I made the tweaks you recommended)?

Thanks again!

For the menu on the left you should add this:
.menu.secondary-menu { font-family: 'NEW FONT FAMILY', sans-serif; }

for the top menu this will do the trick
.main-navigation ul.menu { font-family: 'NEW FONT FAMILY', sans-serif; }
