Why Use Custom Fonts?

Custom fonts will help you build a brand name for your website. You can easily stand out from your competitors with it. Moreover, you can create an aesthetic appeal for your business through a suitable font that matches well to your site design.

As a WordPress theme designer, I would say that adding custom fonts is the best way to improve the typography, which in turn boosts the user experience for better search engine rankings. Besides, you can build an emotional environment to connect with your audience.

Step By Step Process To Upload Custom Fonts In Divi Builder

Step 1: Visit the WordPress dashboard, and click either the “Add New” or any  “Existing page.” Name your page.

Step 2: Click “Use Divi Builder,” and now you will get 3 options. Choose “Build From Scratch.” After that, you will get a popup like this, and I’m picking “one column structure.”


Step 3: Search for “Text Module” in the Module settings and choose it. The Text module will open with some default text. Add “H2 Title,” then only you can see the font variations.


Step 4: Add a sample text, select it, and make it Heading 2. Publish the page (green tick button).

Step 5: In the same settings, visit the “Design” tab, go to the Text section and click “Text Font,” and you will get the preference – Upload font, choose it, and click “Choose Font Files.”


Note – Divi supports the TTF and OTF file formats, and you must keep it in mind.

Step 6: Give a font name and, choose the files to be uploaded, click “Upload.” Now, the fonts will get added. Look at the preview of the newly created page, and you can see that the uploaded font has been applied. Now, you have to save and exit the page builder. 


Step 7: After uploading, you should select that font family like the below image.


Step 8: Now, I will tell you how to select this uploaded font for the Heading and body content. For that, go to Theme Customizer > General Settings > Typography, and there, you will see the uploaded fonts added under the “Header Font” and “Body Font” sections. 


Step 9: Select your preferred uploaded font and see the changes on the preview page. Now, click the “Publish” button. So, I hope you have clearly understood how to use the custom fonts in Divi for the Header and the body text.
