Microsoft word font

  1. hi, there is a really nice font that I'd like to incorporate into my Blog/website which I use in Microsoft word. Is there any way I could do this?

    Thanks

    Connor

    The blog I need help with is blog.studentmisfit.com.

  2. What is the font name?

    What you should know about fonts and the web is that a browser pulls fonts from a users computer. Typically there are several fonts that are specified in the theme files, and if the first is not installed on the user's computer, then the next will be tried, and on down the line. If none of the fonts exist on the user's computer, then the browser will use the standard serif or sans-serif font that is part of the browser program.

    So if someone went to your site, and did not have the font you want to use on their computer, they would not see that font, but one of the others in the font stack in the theme files, or the fall-back serif or sans-serif font in the browser.

    At any rate, it would require you to purchase the custom design upgrade (if you do not have it already) and then either modify the CSS and add the font that perhaps others would not have on their computer, or possibly find something similar through the custom fonts that is part of the custom design upgrade.

    You could, using HTML, specify the font on a post by post or page by page basis, but again if someone does not have that font, they are not going to see it.

  3. What is the name of the font that you are trying to use?

    The Custom Design upgrade allows you to choose from a pretty wide variety of fonts for your blog. You can learn more about it here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/custom-fonts/

    You can also preview the fonts by logging into your Dashboard, and navigating to Appearance > Custom Design > Fonts.

  4. Thank you for the quick replies! The font I would like to use is
    ' Typewriter From Hell'. I tried searching for it on the custom design upgrade preview and the website which hosts the fonts for word press but was unable to find it. I downloaded it to my computer if that's what you mean so I could use it in Word and think it would go great on my blog. I'm not great with the whole code thing but I am a first learner so if there is a way I could learn how to do it. it would just save a lot of time if there was an easier way and if everyone who visited my site would be able to see it. Once again thanks for the quick reply, you guys are fast! Connor

    Connor,

    Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the "Typewriter From Hell" font is available through TypeKit (the service WordPress uses for their fonts in the Custom Design package.)

    As thesacredpath mentioned, you can specify any font that you want in your CSS, but if the visitor doesn't have it installed on their own computer it will display a fallback font instead. Since "Typewriter From Hell" isn't a standard font on most computers, the majority of your visitors would probably see the fallback font instead.

    If you have any additional questions, or if you'd like me to elaborate on anything, please let me know!

    Ha, I apologize. I didn't mean to come across that way. What I should have said was if he has any other questions, to reply here. Sorry about that.

  8. Yo! Welcome and thanks for the laugh ... I'm still lol :D
