Coraline custom fonts

  1. Another Coraline thread. I'm over the initial shock and do find Coraline a far better looking theme, but I have a pretty significant problem: I can't edit my fonts anymore.

    I don't know if this is a problem related to WordPress exactly, but I used to be able to enter html code from w3schools to edit my font to arial.

    Since the Coraline update everything has reverted to the default which you can see on my blog now. Is there anyway to get my arial back, and, more importantly, is it free?

    The blog I need help with is misspeakmusic.wordpress.com.

  2. If you followed the instructions here http://en.support.wordpress.com/editors/font-size-color/ to change the fonts on your blog I can confirm that they still work as I just tested on my demo blog using Coraline.

    But have you considered using a Typekit free account to change your blog's fonts? Once you've set it up, it's certainly much quicker than having to post the HTML every time. You'll find a link in your Dashboard under "Appearance" and there are lots of threads about using Typekit in the forums.

  3. Thanks for your speedy reply. I had followed those instructions there, but their fiddliness
    and my tired state probably meant that I wasn't quite getting it. I managed to nail it fourth time around, thank you.

    I tried typekit, but it doesn't appear to have plain old arial how I like it and it's only a limited free trial, right? I'll stick to my awkward old ways.

    Thanks again!

  4. FWIW- I've been using the free account since it was offered via WordPress.com. http://blog.typekit.com/2009/12/22/customize-your-wordpress-blog-with-typekit-fonts/ According to Typekit's site, the free account limits your use to 2 fonts within a select group of fonts and on one site only, which is pretty usable, but your mileage may vary.
