By default your forum is loaded with an "Open Sans" font. With our Theme Editor you're able to select a different font family from our presets, or you have the option to configure a custom font.

How do I set a Custom Font?
To set a custom font, you'll need to use a public font file that can be accessed via a URL. Common options here are using Google Fonts or Type Kit. For this example, I'll be using Open Sans Condensed, from Google Fonts -
In order to cover our different font variables, we'll want to include at the very least, the fonts normal, light and bold options. To do this with Google Fonts, you can go to the "Styles" section and select the styles you'd like to include:
Once you have your font selected, for security reasons, you'll want to whitelist the domain of the font file. To do this, you'll visit your community's Security page and enter the font URLs domain. If I am using Google Fonts, I'll need to whitelist - https://fonts.googleapis.com

From there, you'll edit your theme.
Navigate to the "Global Styles" section of the Theme UI. In the Font selector, select "Custom Font."

Two inputs will appear - Font URL & Font Name.
Copy your font's URL into the Font URL input. Google Fonts will provide this URL in the "Embed" section of the font page. My Open Sans Codensed URL is as follows: https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Open+Sans+Condensed:wght@300;700&display=swap
Then, I must carefully input my font's name. The spelling must be exact for the font to work. In this case, my font name is "Open Sans Condensed"
Your theme preview should update right away, showing you your custom font.
