Hi! Thank you for the response, When I followed your directions it removed the "syntax error" but the font does not show up as an option in the drop-down font list. Do you know why this might be?

No. Custom font won't appear there. You need to use CSS to set font

eg

@font-face {
	font-family: 'Gotham Book';
	src: url(paste font url you uploaded here);
}
h1, h2, h3, h4 {
	font-family: 'Gotham Book';
}

Generally there are three things you need to do.

First upload the font to Squarespace. Please see Using the CSS Editor > Upload files (optional). Technically you don't need to upload to SS if you have some other place to host the font file. It just needs to be available on the internet somewhere.

Second you then need to define a font-face rule-set for CSS. That is usually done in Design > Custom CSS.

Third you need to apply the font family to the desired elements.

Hello, if i have a font file and not a URL, what is the code i need to use?  thank you!

Upload to your site & you will have url.

Design > Custom CSS> Click Manage Custom Files > Upload font > Click font you just uploaded > The SS will paste url in Custom CSS box > Cut url & paste in font face code

can you share the code needed to add it to the paragragh (1, 2, 3, 4...)?

There is a general example in @tuanphan's post from the 2/10.

For more specific information please post the URL to your site.

If your site is not public please set up a site-wide password, if you've not already done so. Post the password here.

We can then take a look at your issue.
