New On SiteW: Customize Your Website Fonts

When you create a website, textual and visual content are of course essential. But the way your website looks is at least as important! Your website fonts for instance must be chosen with care. A serif font that is thin, classic and elegant will not have the same impact as a large and massive font. SiteW wants to help you choose and customize your website fonts in the easiest way possible.

How to customize my website fonts?

To select and modify your website fonts, start with clicking on the Design tab, then on the Website fonts button.

It is not advised to select more than 2 or 3 different font families for a website, in order to maintain visual homogeneity and graphic coherence. That’s why we decided to separate your website textual content into 4 groups:
  • Menus

This group corresponds to the Menu block links as well as to the pagination of the Blog block and to the pages and categories of the Store block.

  • Main texts

This group corresponds to the simple texts of your website: Paragraphs, Blog article content, Store product descriptions...

  • Titles

This group gathers all the titles: Text titles, Blog article titles, Store product titles, Forum topics etc.

  • Links and buttons

This group gathers all the links and Call-to-action buttons: Member space access, Comment or contact form submission, Forum post, Call-to-action buttons of the Store block etc.
