    I could be wrong but I think GoogleFont removed the font I was using on my site suddenly, it’s now working anymore.

    I looked in documentation and found this page: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/adding-custom-font/

    I don’t use a child theme, what can I do in this case? Thank you.

    GeneratePress 2.0.2
    GP Premium 1.6.2

    1. Upload font files to your server (child theme).

    Do I need to have a child theme? Can I import all of my settings with one click if I create one? Thank you.

    The actual font files need to be hosted on your domain, so a child theme is usually needed unless you build a plugin and include them in the plugin folder. You can create a plugin using this plugin: https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/pluginception/

    It will add a plugin folder in wp-content/plugins which you can upload your fonts to.

    If you activate a child theme, the only GP settings you may need to re-set are the site logo and copyright. All of the others should remain.

    You can be sure by exporting your GP settings first in “Appearance > GeneratePress”. That way if things aren’t right, you can import your saved settings.

    Let me know if you need more info ๐Ÿ™‚


    Thank you Tom!

    I went the child theme way, the font is working perfectly now:)

    Awesome, glad I could help ๐Ÿ™‚


    I created a child theme Where should I add the new fonts? Should I create a folder Fonts at the root of the child theme?
    The new fonts were added to the library on the parent theme. They show up by default when a new block is added, but not visible when editing an existing block of text.

    Hi there,

    yes, create a Fonts folder in your child theme directory.
