WordPress users, this one’s for you! I’ve created a tonne of tutorials for Blogger users but seem to have neglected WordPress.org users so I’ll be offering a lot more WordPress-centric tutorials. WordPress is what Girl Does Geek is run on after all. This tutorial will show you how to add any font to your blog. One thing to remember though is that you’ll need to check the licencing agreement of your desired font to make sure you are legally allowed to use them. Some great sites for fonts are DaFont, Font Squirrel and MyFonts. There’s basically 2 steps to this tutorial. 1. Purchase, install & activate the WordPress Font Uploader plugin. Yes unfortunately you have to pay for it but it is only $10(roughly £6) 2. Locate the plugin on your WordPress dashboard and select it. Upload the font by clicking on ‘choose file’ and then upload font. If you just want to use it for titles then once4 the font has been uploaded just select the font name under the area titled ‘headers’ and save your changes. It is a fab little plugin and makes adding fonts a breeze. I will be showing you how to add custom fonts via the @fontface rule soon. It is a tad more complicated though and you will need to know how to transfer files via FTP and also how to use firebug. But stay tuned! 6 Responses Lauren July 30th, 2012 Cool, thanks for the plugin recommendation. I might use it! Reply gdg1981 August 1st, 2012 You should try it. It is so simple to use.

Reply aimee steckowski July 31st, 2012 do you need to purchase the plugin for every website or is there a developer’s license!? thanks for sharing!! Reply gdg1981 July 31st, 2012 They do a developers version. Until recently this plugin was free and available through the WordPress plugin repository but they recently made it a premium plugin.
