Posted OnFeb 7, 2015     CategoryPlugins     CommentsNo comment

The final step in the guide to the Google Fonts for WordPress plugin will show you how to customise your Theme and Layouts that will run throughout your website.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) To find the Theme Customisations page, head to Google Fonts -> Theme Customisations.


Step 3) This will take you to your Home Page, and the customisation toolbar will appear down the left-hand side. The toolbar includes a variety of options, including colours, site title and tagline, header and background images and various styles for posts, boxes, titles and more.


Step 4) When you click on any option, you will be granted a list of options on the type of font, the size of the font, whether you would like Bold, Italic or Underline added, and any shadow added. Go through these options for each section on the toolbar and set them according to your preference. They will show on the right-hand side as you edit your changes.


Step 5) For colours, click on the different options and then alter the colours using the options screen that will pop-up with a variety of colours to choose from.


Step 6) With the Comment Box for Facebook, you can alter the width in pixels as well as change the font and colours throughout.


Step 7) The sidebars throughout your site (where your widgets are held) can be edited in terms of colours, fonts and font sizes. Simply click on each one individually and edit them as you see fit.


Step 8) Head to Google Fonts -> Theme Layouts next to see the settings saved in the past, reset the settings, and to save the most recent settings. This is useful for when you are changing your themes, and have settings saved for different themes.


Step 9) If you have an XML file with theme layout settings saved to it, you can add it by clicking on Choose File, and then hitting Upload Import File once you have found the file on your computer.


This concludes our guide of the Google Fonts plugin.
