    How can I add a font from my computer to wordpress


    Setting a font that will means the font will only work for someone who has that font installed on their computer. To make it work, you have to make sure you’re using the right selector (you just included the property and value above without a selector). And you also have to make sure the font name matches exactly to the name of the font installed on your computer.

    Based on your example, it seems to me like you need help with the selector part.

    Look at this page as an example:

    To change the page title font for the Oxygen theme, you would add something like this to your Appearance → Themes → Customize → CSS panel:

    body h2 {
         font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", serif;

    Now, setting fonts with the CSS font-family attribute means that the browser will cycle through each font you list until it finds a font that is installed on the visitor’s computer. This means that you can use Georgia, and if your website vistiors don’t have it installed on their computer, it will display the next font in the list.

    The other way of using fonts on websites is by using a font you have purchased a license for and then installed on your web server or by using a font from a web font service. The Custom Design upgrade at is a service that offers 50+ fonts to choose from. Part of the upgrade fee pays for the licensing of the fonts used.

    How can I add a font from my computer to wordpress does not offer the option for you to upload a font from your computer. The Custom Design upgrade does have an option for you to select from over 50 pre-selected fonts though.
