Integrating Custom Fonts into Pagelines

Recommended Posts

My art designer provided me with a font for my website and I have tried using cufon but the font does not render well. I have also tried the font-face through Css and it still did not work too well. - Is there a way of integrating a custom font into the Pagelines child themes? Thanks

Hi there,

 

There's a couple of plugins I've seen people use but I'm no sure how well they work inside the Framework. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/typekit-fonts-for-wordpress/

 

I'd think the best way would be to follow the procedure at typekit but instead of editing the core files to put the script into the header file, put them into the Pagelines header script box in Pagelines>site options>custom code>header scripts.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      I have a problem with the typography settings. I set the H1 class with "font-weight: 300;" (Very thin weight), and "font-size: 50px;" (To have considerable evidence of my problem). Unfortunately, as you can see on the screenshots, those setting don't have any incidence on the site, Infact in the home page editor there is a trial title called "Text test", bold, and 26 px approximatly sized.
      Why the typography settings are not transposed on the site? Where I wrong?

      A week ago I setup a brand new install of Wordpress and latest DMS. Wanted to try the Whitehouse theme but accidently activated iBolg first. Went back and chose whitehouse, but now when I look at the templates area, there are a bunch of Iblog templates there but no whitehouse named templates (and something called iPage Handling in Page Setup column?). Further mystery is there are several whitehouse sections available to add to page.  no iblog sections though...?
      Also having some weirdness with editor. When I change the Primary Text typography to Georgia and a large size (like 24px) the blue navbar separator bars extend down below the bottom of the navbar area.  Using Inspector, I can see I can set height in CSS to deal with that. But while in the DMS editor, I can't see the new text size being displayed! If I logout and view the page, it looks big like I chose in a couple different browsers, but in CHrome while logged in to editor, the font is small
      Any suggestions? Would like to see what my text choices look like without having to log out.

      Does anyone know how to scale down the h1-h6 tags within the template section?
       
      I want to keep the native sizes in the header, fixed bar, and footer sections.

      I have DMS2 installed on Wordpress 4.0.1 running with the Skeleton basic child theme. The only plugins i have installed and active Pagelines Pro plugin and the Paglines Updater.

      When I make adjustments to the Typography settings, nothing changes on the site. I am trying to set the default text to 16px Open Sans G*.
       
      To show a clear example, I tried setting the default font to Lobster, but it still shows a 14px Helvetica, Arial (Screenshot attached)
       
      Any help or insight would be appreciated.

      Hi All
       
      I'm experiencing an odd issue when editing the global settings on the front end.
       
      I'm unable to make changes to typograpy and site colors.
       
      If I disable a plug-in (any plug-in) I'm able to make a single change and then unable to make further changes - unless I disable another plug-in (any plug-in).
       
      I'm running latest versions of:
      DMS2
      WP 4
      Chrome
       
      My standard set of dev plugins:
      Backup Buddy
      Gravity Forms
      Private Only
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
       
      All in one SEO Pack Pro - Disabled
      Akismet - Disabled
       
       
      Obviously this is an admin user issue; if someone in support could take a look at this I'd really appreciate it and can PM admin credentials.
