Hello jarn,

You can change your fonts here :
Administration panel > display > colors

Title Font Face : Changes the titles font
Main Font Face : Changes the main font
Code Font Face : Changes the font for the code tags

The font that you add has to be on your members' computer for it to appear for them.

The font of the usernames and groups in my forum. The thing you showed me didn't work.

I'm not sure if it'll help but I mean something like this.

To customize the members names that are in a group, see this tuto :
http://help.forumotion.com/t131443-customize-usernames-according-to-group

To customize the group name itself, see this one :

From the first tuto I linked :
Still using the selector given above and changing the color of the group :
Code:
a span[style="color:#000000"] strong

You can customize as you wish with the usernames of your members according to their group. For example : a border, give them a background, a particular font, a shadow…

So to give them a different font, we use the font-family property.

CSS Example :
Code:
a span[style="color:#000000"] strong {
    font-family:papyrus, sans-serif;
}

The above code will give the members of group black(#000000) the font papyrus, if papyrus is not present on their computer sans-serif will display instead.

Thank you! It works. However, I still have two more questions. If the font I wanted to use was more than one word (Open Sans Condensed, for example), how would I put it in? Also, is there any way to change the group's font also?

If a font name contains spaces it should be written in quotes :
Code:
a span[style="color:#000000"] strong {
    font-family:"Open Sans Condensed", sans-serif;
}
