Typography: How to change your fonts on Salt theme


Some of you might have already discovered this new feature in the WordPress Customizer, so lets take a look what is this feature is for.

As you can see under Typography there are menu option: Default, Paragraph, H1, H2,H3,H4,H5,H6 and settings.

  • Default – Once you select a font here will makes change to your Menu bar, Paginations and all those places where the site doesn’t know what else to use.
  • Paragraph – This is to change the main paragraph font of your content and the date/Author/Category underneath your articles.
  • H1, H2, H3, H4, H4, H6 – This will make the change to all your Headings and title of your articles.
  • Settings – This is because in most cases the font will be loaded from Google, but the Google’s API is blocked in China so Useso option is for the users and audiences in China.

Once you enter to Default option, you will see Font Family, Font Size, Weight, Font Color, Line Height and Character.

  • Font Family – This is the option to select the font you like. The first several options are standard web-safe fonts, the following fonts are Google Fonts, giving a wide range of choices!
  • Font Size – You can choose the size of your text here.
  • Weight – 400 is “normal”, 400 italic will be “normal“. 700 is bold such as “normal“, 700 italic will be “normal“, there are many different choices here depending on each fontset.
