    I’ve created a website offline (localhost) by WordPress. The ones that I created it for want me to use DaxlinePro font for everything on the website. They sent me the font in an ‘otf’ file. My problem is, I don’t know how to add it to the site. Any help would be appreciated. And one more thing: I need solutions that I don’t have to pay for. Thank you.

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

    Oh, sorry. I forgot to mention: the site that I need help is not hellofawrestling. That is just I site that I wanted to create a few month ago and still not deleted.

    The short answer is you cannot import any fonts into any site hosted by wordpress.COM.

    WordPress.COM is a turn key blogging platform with off the shelf themes designed for those who do not code. There is not need to hire anyone at all to need to muck about using a local wordpress.ORG install, as we cannot use any themes or fonts that are not already provided here.

    The only themes we can use on WordPress.com hosted blogs are licensed and adapted to run on our multiuser software the themes are found here http://wordpress.com/themes/ and in your dashboard at > Appearance > Themes

    We cannot:
    upload any third party themes,
    create child themes,
    create our own themes,
    edit templates,
    create own own layouts,
    or use stylesheets from other themes.

    There is no FTP access to any wordpress.com sites. See:
    Themes ┬╗Uploading Custom Themes
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/

    P.S. Also be keenly aware that you cannot transfer any theme from https://wordpress.com/themes/ which is licensed and adapted to run on WordPress.COM software to a WordPress.ORG site, and visa versa. The two run on different software and have different versions of themes with the same names. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    This is wordpress.COM support. We provide support only for wordpress.COM hosted sites. Our support docs do not apply to
    (1) local installs of wordpress.ORG software
    on your own server or
    (2) wordpress.ORG software installs on paid hosting, and we do not provide support for them at wordpress.COM.
    (3) sites linked to wordpress.COM accounts with the Jetpack plugin so they display on the My Sites wordpress.com account page.

    The wordpress.ORG login link is here https://login.wordpress.org/ If you do not have an account yet then click Create an account https://login.wordpress.org/register/ and if you have lost an account password click Lost password? https://login.wordpress.org/lostpassword/

    Thank you for the answer. But isn’t there any way to play with the php files or maybe with the files in the theme’s folder? What if I exchange the font file in the folder to the one that I want to use?

    Not here at wordpress.com there isn’t any way to do that. What you want to do can only be done on a wordpress.ORG software install.

    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums.

    Thanks for your help. Actually, I am creating a website for a company that already owns a domain but they want to delete their current site and use the one that I create instead. The top level domain is not a ‘com’ or an ‘org’. The top level domain is ‘hu’ (that stands for Hungary).

    I’ve tried so many things yesterday on my localhost server and I was able to change the font to the one that I wished to. What do you think? Will I see this font when I upload it online or it switches back to the themes original font?

    I thing I will punt this thread over to Staff rather than answering bit by bit because I do not think you fully understand the differences between wordpress.com and wordpress.org.

    There is no FTP access to wordpress.com sites. There is no ability to upload any custom themes and fonts.

    I will type modlook into the sidebar tags on this thread for a Staff follow-up. How do I get a Moderator/Staff reply for my question? https://en.support.wordpress.com/getting-help-in-the-forums/#how-do-i-get-a-moderatorstaff-reply-for-my-question Also subscribe to this thread so you are notified when they respond and be patient while waiting. To subscribe look in the sidebar of this thread, find the subscribe to topics link and click it.

    Hi @vercetti97, to clarify, WordPress.com is a service where we manage the installation for you. You do have a few sites here with us, which you can find here:
    https://wordpress.com/sites

    WordPress.org is free software you can install anywhere. Plugins, local installations, basically a DYI software you can build on. That is what you’re referring to in your comments. You can find help at https://wordpress.org/support .

    If you need more help understanding the differences, see https://get.wp.com

    Sorry, but since you talk like a robot it’s not easy to understand for a not native speaker.

    @vercetti97 what’s your native language? I’ll see if I can find something for you.
