By default your forum is loaded with an "Open Sans" font, however you can easily update to the font you'd like to use in your community.
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.
To set your default font, navigate to the theme editor and open the Global Styles option on the right hand side:
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 example, if we wanted to use 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 Settings (Dashboard, then Settings, then select the Security tab on the left hand side) and enter the font URLs domain. If I am using Google Fonts, I'll need to whitelist - https://fonts.googleapis.com
Once the font URL's domain has been whitelisted, you can add the custom font via the theme editor.
Navigate to the "Global Styles" section of the Theme UI. In the Font selector, select "Custom Font."
Once you have selected 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 Condensed URL is as follows: https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Open+Sans+Condensed:wght@300;700&display=swap
Then, carefully input the font's name. The spelling must be exact for the font to work. In this case, the font name is "Open Sans Condensed"
Your theme preview should update right away, showing you your custom font.
