In progress Changing Fonts

Post by doomedNeophyte October 20th 2014, 4:15 am

Hello, I'm having a bit of trouble trying to change fonts on my forum here => http://pokemon-roleplay.forumotion.com/ As you can see it's the default style. I've been trying to add fonts from here => http://www.dafont.com/ by downloading them, then typing the name of the Font in the Font Face boxes in AdminPanel : Display : Colors. However, when I save it, the font doesn't change. Any help is appreciated.

Those fonts wil only appear if you have those fonts installed on your computer.

Yeah, I made sure I installed them, though they still didn't appear. Did I not install them correctly or was it the font? I used a font from the Bitmap section on the Fontsite I mentioned.

After downloading did you add them with CSS?

It depends on what you want to add this font to. For example, you can use the wildcard selector to add the font to all elements :
Code:
* {
  font-family:Papyrus, sans-serif;
}

It's not ideal, but it's a good way to see if the font is supported for your device.

No, that didn't work either. The font I'm trying to use is this one: Changing Fonts Damnfo10

I want to add it to the entire forum.

Have you tried writing it as :
Code:
* {
  font-family:'Flipps-Regular';
}

It may not be supported. You can use websites like Google Fonts to find a font that you can use. These should work for everyone so long as their browser is up to date.

Example :
Go to Quick use > choose standard and copy the href into your address bar to get the font-face rule. Place the copied rule at the top of your stylesheet, then you should be able to use it in any rule.

Code:
@font-face {
  font-family: 'Indie Flower';
  font-style: normal;
  font-weight: 400;
  src: local('Indie Flower'), local('IndieFlower'), url(http://fonts.gstatic.com/s/indieflower/v7/10JVD_humAd5zP2yrFqw6nhCUOGz7vYGh680lGh-uXM.woff) format('woff');
}

* { font-family:'indie flower' }
