Words, Posts, Colors, and Pictures all together are the one who represent your blog or website. There are not one, but millions of options available on what to use, as even the time I am writing up this tutorial-cum-article for you, someone somewhere in different part of the world developing something which can be turned out the future fonts. Talking on ground level, the font you choose or select while designing your website results in influencing a great bunch of people.
There are different types and styles fonts available out there, but wait – there is a barrier in between – unless and until the user actually has font installed on their systems. Generic serif or sans-serif or any other which you like has to be avail (i.e. installed) on your machine first. If in case you have no font installed, then you will see a generic Courier font at par. You can even control the fonts via your theme’s style sheet (style.css in maximum cases) as well as you can also control the font-family, the color, the size and other aspects related to your font.
Why This Font?
Fonts used in WordPress Themes can be used in one-to-many ways. They don’t remain always the same as after all it totally depends on the Theme author’s final decision on which font has to be used. Moreover, there is different fonts avail in different parts of website, say you noticed one in the header while other in the sidebar and so on.
Locating The Font
The fonts you noticed within the header of a site can be normally found within the header div, while the one which you locate in the sidebar or menu or event footer style divisions can be located at their respected file areas only. It may turned out to be challenging sometimes even to track it down, while fonts within the post content area are mostly found in CSS classes, including content, post, entry and post-entry.
