How do I do that?

I'm not asking for advice on simple programming, I'm asking for help with one particular problem. A lot of people are asking, and getting, help here. How is that a bad thing?

Hi Johannes,

1.) there's another thread and you said "the site takes a long time to finish loading"
Having that in mind, the last thing I'd recommend is loading an additonal font file because it would slow down loading times even more

2.) this forum isn't meant to teach basic programming, and actually you'll find answers like that by simply googling "css usee custom font" for example

I am still hoping someone can help me here. I have tried for months to find a solution, and I know it must be a really easy solution, but my knowledge is too limited to find it.

Please someone? :)

OK, thanks. But what do I do next?

what I was saying about the !important flag was that you can specify a font-family in another css rule and overwrite the font-family that is specified in the rule for body. for example:

.topbar .site-name a {
    text-transform: lowercase;
    font-size: 25px;
    padding: 10px;
    color: #fff;
    display: block;
    font-weight: normal;
    font-family:"Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif" !important;
}

the !important flag overrides any existing css rule that would otherwise be applied.

My knowledge of CSS and HTML is limited. I hope there is someone out there who knows and who has the time to explain this to me :)

you can use the !important flag to override existing css rules, so that might help solve your problem. unfortunately I'm not great at css myself.

Hello

I wish I was better at CSS. I am able to change the size and into lowecase here (this is pretty self-explanatory for me):

.topbar .site-name a {
    text-transform: lowercase;
    font-size: 25px;
    padding: 10px;
    color: #fff;
    display: block;
    font-weight: normal;
}

but I am not able to find where to change the font. Apparently I need to change something in body, but I can't find this part:

    body {
    font-family: "PT Sans",sans-serif,"Apple Color Emoji","Segoe UI
    Emoji","NotoColorEmoji","Segoe UI Symbol","Android Emoji","EmojiSymbols";

All I want to do is to change the font at the top to a ttf-font called Biysk.ttf, which I have uploaded to root. But the code is so confusing to me that even with the help of Google I can't figure out what to do where.

You can change it in themes/goblue/plugins/default/css/core/default.php
