How to Change Your Font

Ignite includes five fonts you can choose from:

  • Lusitana (default)
  • Roboto
  • Roboto Slab
  • Lato
  • Droid Serif

To change your font:

  1. Visit the Customizer (Appearance → Customize)
  2. Click on the Font section
  3. Click on the Font Family section
  4. Use the font dropdown to select the font you'd like to use
  5. To change the weight, save your changes and reload the page
  6. After the page reloads, click on the Font Weight section
  7. Use the font weight dropdown to select a weight for your font
  8. Click the Save & Publish button to save your changes

Your site has now been updated with your new font.

Note: font weight simply means the boldness of the font. A higher weight means a bolder font, and a lower weight means a thinner font.
