Adding New Fonts

Adding new fonts should be an easier process than it is currently. You shouldnt have to painfully figure out HTML just so your site can look good. It needs to be just as simple as everything else on Weebly. Its rediculous that adding font isn't a simple task.

Re: Adding New Fonts

We offer quite a few font choices on the Theme tab already, @qmfansite. If you want to add a custom font you do need to know enough to edit your theme and add it, though for many people they can find one they like with the built-in option.

Re: Adding New Fonts

Hi Adam,

 

Can you direct me to the instructions re: how to add a font to Weebly, please, that was mentioned above? Can I do it by adding code in theme somehow? I have some already designed marketing materials to use on my site, but unfortunately, Weebly doesn't have one of fonts available as an option, so I'll need to add it.

 

Many thanks!

Re: Adding New Fonts

Thanks for that, Adam. Unfortunately that tutorial is outdated and also not as clear as it could be as it doesn't specify exactly where to paste the imported code.

Re: Adding New Fonts

You are literally the exact issue he is complaining about, man. It needs to be easier to add fonts to a theme. A lot of companies use a font as their branding. I don't see how you don't see this is an issue. Just make it easier? Or update your documentation so people who aren't super familiar with HTML can do it? I mean, WE ARE PAYING YOU TO MAKE CREATING AND EDITING A WEBSITE EASIER.

 

I would also concur that the documentation is no longer correct.
