        Adding a custom font

        To add a custom font:

        1. From the relevant widget editor, under Fonts, click Add Font.
        2. Complete the following fields:
          1. Font-family name (required) - Enter the font-family name that you want to use on this widget. If you want, you can use Google fonts to browse fonts and locate the font-family name.
          2. Font URL (optional) - Without a font URL, your font will display on your website, however, it will not be reflected in the editor preview. You can upload the font file to a file hosting service such as and then receive a URL that can be added to the font-URL field. 
        Which font file type should I upload?

        You can upload any font file type, but make sure that file type is supported on most browsers. We recommend using Web Open Format File (WOFF).

        • Font weight (optional) - The font-weight CSS property sets the weight, or boldness, of the font. The weights available depend on the font-family you chose. Enter an integer between 100 and 900 to choose a weight. The default weight is set to 400 and will apply if you leave the field blank.

        What are Google fonts?

        Google fonts aren’t different than any other custom font (or paid font). They are just a free and widely used option. The benefit of Google fonts is they don't require manual hosting, since you can just use the embed link. Meaning unlike other fonts, there is no need to host the font files.
