Hi all, i know the name of the Google Font i want, “Comic Sans MS” i would like it to be the ONLY Font on all my pages, is there an easy way to do this please ?.
I dont want to go to the expense of JW’s Font Pro Stack.
I have tried Will Woodgate’s free Font Stack, but this only changes the Font in some places and not others.
I have some text boxes into which i put the tags < p> and < /p> at each end of the paragraph but that doesn’t work either, it should work i would have thought, because Paragraphs are ticked in Will’s Font Stack settings, perhaps i am doing something wrong.
As it is a free stack, i feel i shouldnt really be bothering Will with my Question.
I am using Foundation ! and i suppose the Font Pro Stack would definitely do what i want ! LOL.
PS. < h1> and < /h1> doesnt do anything either ???
You can easily do this with Font Pro
I bet i can, i just watched Joe’s video , but it is $50, but i dont want to do anything fancy at all, just use one particular Google Font !
I was hoping that someone somewhere had a nice little piece of CSS that would do what i am after, in a stroke. LOL. It looks as if i am asking for the impossible
Personally I wouldn’t use comic sans. The font has massive stigma attached to it’s use.
However, if you insist, something like this would get you started - but I haven’t tried it with Foundation.
font-family: 'Comic Sans MS', 'Chalkboard SE', 'Comic Neue', sans-serif;
Dropping it in the CSS, Code area under Settings of RW7 will change it on every page.
I couldnt believe that my favorite Font was frowned upon, LOL
Thanks @mark , i found this by Googling …
font-family: ‘Comic Sans MS’,serif;
I have just pasted that into all my pages, with 100% success, BUT would it still work WITHOUT @import etc . ???
Have you tried the site styles google import??
@zeebe I certainly did, it only worked in a few places
@zeebee A THOUSAND apologies young man, i have now discovered why the Fonts settings werent working in Foundation, i had somehow typed in “Comis” instead of “Comic”
It is all ok now
Later:- I found out that the Comic Sans MS doesnt display on smaller sized screens, @zeebee has helped me enormously in locating the “ZOFF” files and all the other Font files that go towards a very similar alternative Font, called “Comic Neue”
However, me being a little short of knowledge, can anybody please give me a hand on how to get this FONT into my Rapidweaver Project ? I dont doubt I could take the easy way out and purchase ($50) JW’s Font Pro stack but i dont doubt that is like cracking a nut with a SledgeHammer for my simple needs.
I have asked @zeebee the same question in the JW Support desk, but i thought it would be usefull for other beginners like me, to be able to see what is involved with getting unusual fonts implemented in RW
Ugh! There are actually people out there who like Comic Sans? Has the world gone mad? I think there should be a child lock on all font stacks which can only be unlocked by entering a special code issued after completion of an accredited typography course, preferably at postgraduate level. Actually, there is at least one worse font, Souvenir.
@peterdanckwerts That is so funny Peter, I love it. thanks for your input.
I love Comic Sans MS even more now LOL.
I am still in need of some assistance getting that Font across all screen sizes !
To my eternal shame, I have made a page in Foundation with Comic sans. I only managed to get the headings to work by using Header Plus from Big White Duck, which allows you to specify a Google Font. The Top Bar slogan has not changed to Comic Sans, but you should be able to fix that with Top Bar Surgeon from BWD.
Hi @peterdanckwerts thanks for going to the trouble to create an example
I have eventually splashed the cash on FontPro, but as i feared i am struggling to get that to play ball with ME !, i sent in a support ticket and i wait for @zeebe 's valuable assistance
I still dont understand why everybody is ridiculing that particular Font ? I like it anyway. LOL
@timmytoad Never mind. The main thing is that you like it. Once you get the hang of Font Pro, you’ll find that it is very easy to use and a great time-saver.
@peterdanckwerts thanks for the encouragement
