Solved Install a font?

Post by Patchy on December 7th 2016, 6:19 pm

First topic message reminder :

I have a few fonts I am wanting to install. How would I embed them into the forum? I see others doing it but.. I'm unsure how. I'm wanting to instal Yozakura, Manga Hollow, and a few others.

Hey there Patchy,

First thing is you're going to want to get to your administration panel where you make all of the big changes to and about your forum. Once you've gotten in there, that's when you'll click the "Display" tab, then click the "Colors" tab on the side. You're almost there! Now you're going to paste all of that in the CSS Stylesheet and you're good to submit that page to save the changes! After doing so, you will notice the changes on your forum immediately. Smile

Hope this helps,

Cody

Not save page, but the submit button.

Do the following:
1. Go to ACP > Display > Colors > CSS Stylesheet
2. Go to this site: http://www.fontsquirrel.com (the one the founders of the other forum used)
3. Search for the fonts you want to use (make sure that they are free to use)
4. Click on the blue button that says "Download OTF"
5. Follow the steps on the website to get the download link
6. In the downloaded ZIP file there should be a file called "Stylsheet", copy the content in that file and paste it in the CSS of your forum.

You can also upload your own fonts (in .otf format) by clicking the "Generator" button on the top, and then just paste the Stylsheet Code from that ZIP File into your CSS.

I personally never used this site, so I explored the site a bit to try and figure out how it works. If you have any difficulties, check their "Help Installing Fonts" page for further assistance from the people who run that site.

In the end, none of these posts knew what to do. Thank you for trying, none the less.
