How to Manually Add New Custom Font to your theme

Adding your own choice of fonts is relatively easy by using Custom CSS function on the G5Theme item. All that’s required is uploading a font to your server, then adding it to your theme with a few small snippets of CSS.

Let’s look at how to do it for your WordPress theme as well as a G5Theme item.

Step 1: Prepare all your font files

There are many places to find great web fonts for free, just make sure the font you choose has a license suitable for your needs.
Once you have chosen your new font, you need to download its file. Keep in mind that there are different kinds of font files and they aren’t all compatible across most major browsers (ex: my theme used eot, woff2, woff, ttf, svg)

Step 2: Upload font files to your directory

Once you’ve prepared all your font, it’s a good idea to back up your entire site before making any changes.

Unzip the font packaged file and upload the contents to your theme folder which can be found under this path wp-content\themes\your-theme\assets\fonts (Fonts” folder to house your file to keep things organized, especially if you plan on adding more than one font)

Step 3: Add Custom CSS

Go to Theme Options >> Custom CSS tab on the backend, add CSS below:

@font-face {
font-family: 'your_name_font_family';
src: url('https://your_domain/wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/assets/fonts/your_font_file_name.eot');
src: url('https://your_domain/wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/assets/fonts/your_font_file_name.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
url('https://your_domain/wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/assets/fonts/your_font_file_name.woff2') format('woff2'),
url('https://your_domain/wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/assets/fonts/your_font_file_name.woff') format('woff'),
url('https://your_domain/wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/assets/fonts/your_font_file_name.ttf') format('truetype'),
url('https://your_domain/wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/assets/fonts/your_font_file_name.svg#ge_ss_twolight') format('svg');
font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;

your_name_font_family: name of the font, you can type anything you want (make sure that it don’t duplicate already fonts)
your_domain: your website URL
your_font_file_name: they are the name of files (which you uploaded to directory font).

Step 4: Save changes

Click “Save Changes” and “Generate Less To CSS
or click “Save & Generate CSS” button. Recently, we integrated “Save Changes” and “Generate Less To CSS” button   (http://prntscr.com/gb0920) so you can simply click on “Save Changes” button.

After that, you can use style: font-family: 'your_name_font_family';anywhere on your website.
