The second I'm clicking and the fonts on My website are actually changing I can Also change the basic fonts right here From the menu itself so for example if I Want to change the body font all the Headings font I can do it right here so By clicking this pencil icon the menu For typography customization will open Up and right now as you can see the font Family is set to pop ins but if I click This drop down menu let's say I have a Scroll up let's say I switch it to Helvetica then instantly you can see the Heading fonts actually change up and as You can see this Astra theme has bunch Of fonts integrated all the Google Phones technically are integrated with The Astra theme so depending on what Theme you're using you might already Have this functional the built in to Customize the fonts on your website and As you can see apart from changing the Font for the headings and for the body I Can also customize the headings for H1 H2h3 that means different kinds of Headaches customizable right here inside The theme so your theme might provide You with the functionality that you need Already to customize the fonts on your Website that's for method number one Let's go to Method number two So let's talk about the second method You can utilize to customize the fonts On your WordPress website now this

Method will apply only to people who are Using the modern block based theme for Example I'll show you my screen right Here and I've activated instead of the Astra theme I've activated the 2022 Theme right now on the WordPress website And how do you know that this is a Blog Based theme because under appearance Instead of noticing that instead of the Customizer you start getting this editor Option right here which is still in beta But it's still functional so if you are Using a Blog based theme you won't see The customizer on your website that's The first line that you're using a Blog Based team and if you like that theme You already want to use it and still Want to customize the fonts on your Website the method is a little bit Different what you'll do is go to the Editor option right here by clicking This option right here this will open up The newer editor in the WordPress I say Interface which is more of a Blog based Approach to changing and what the option You have here is the ability to Customize a lot of styles in terms of Presets so you can create an entire Preset and change it across themes so Maybe what you see on the screen right Here will be something like this or Maybe you will say something like this But what you need to remember is that to Open these styled options or open the

Style options you'll have to click this Option this button right here which is Called Styles so once you click this You'll see start seeing the Styles Option and inside the style option you See the colors and the layout and of Course you see the typography options as Well so by clicking the typography Option I'll scroll down and I'll see the Typography option for elements that Means the links and the text so let's Say if I click Text I have now the Option to change the font family from System font to something else and as you Can see the font family instantly Changes right here if I go back to Default you see the default option System font or I say Surf and I can also Change the size of the font and I can Also change the line height and also Change some of the display options so I Can change the font from Bold to italic Or something whatever the font actually Supports the font Family actually Supports I can actually change it and The font family will start reflecting That change now one thing to keep in Mind is that the page I designed was Designed with the Astra theme if you Just use the 2022 base basic team the Interface as is different and depending On the theme that you're using in terms Of the block themes the functionality or The customization ability inside the

Fonts will also change you might see More fonts you might see less fonts but The functionality or the way to change The font is through this interface right Here this was method number two on how To customize your funds inside your WordPress website let's go to Method Number three So let's talk about the third method you Can utilize to customize the fonts on Your WordPress website and this method Will apply to people who are using a Non-block based team that means regular WordPress themes but still want to have The functionality to customize the fonts Directly from the theme for example just For this demonstration what I did was Instead of using the 2022 team or the Astra theme I switched to the 2020 theme An older version of the WordPress Default theme and if you go to the Customizer right here you can explore All the menu options all the options and You won't find an option to customize The text or customize the typography or Customize the fonts on your website so How do you customize the phones in this Case that's the answer which I'm going To discuss right now and the easy Solution to this is by using a font Management Plugin or a font plugin which I'm going to use or demonstrate right Now now there are tons of plugins out There right you can go to the plugins

Directory and install any of the font Plugins but the plugin I found that Works the best is called easy Google Fonts easy Google fonts is a fantastic Plugin I'll just demonstrate how it Works but the idea is it gives you Access to Google fonts it also gives you A access to a lot of different Customization options not just picking a Separate font right that's why I Recommend that you use this plugin for Changing your phones or customizing Phones so let's install this plugin by Going to the plugins menu add new and Since this is a free plugin available in The wp repository we just have to search For the plugin name And the plugin should show up do keep in Mind that other plugins might also look Similar so you might accidentally Install the site kit plugin but we are Looking at this plugin right here easy Google funds let's install the plugin Plugin is installed let's also activate It Once the plugin is installed you'll see Some of the notice right here but you Can skip this by just going into the Settings or by clicking this option Right here inside the settings which Will bring you to the same page now this Options can be a little bit more Confusing to set up so if you're just Looking to change the fonts on your

Website I would suggest that you go Right here manage with live preview Click this button right here leave this Page and you will go to the customize it Directly and you will see a typography Option being reduced right here on the Customizer so if you're in the main page Typography inside typography you'll see All the options to customize the fonts On your website so paragraph heading one Heading to up till heading 6. let's try And change the font of this home label By going to home heading one right here Now you have options to change the font Family so right now set to Aerial but I Can go to any of the fonts and you can See how long I have to scroll to find All the options there's tons of options Available to me so I click this one and The phone instantly changes I can pick Fonts based on languages I can also Change their weightage for example I Just made it a little bit heavier then Decoration that means underline line Through over line all these options but I also have the option of changing the Styles so if I go right here I can Change pick the font color I can also Change the position that means sending a Margins paddings borders border radius And display options for all fonts and I Can customize this for heading 1 Paragraph one heading to all the Different fonts on my website so instead
