Using Custom CSS to change to other Squarespace fonts for single page

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://www.ungsonlab.com/erin-nick

I am trying to change the font on a single page on my site using Custom CSS and the page's collection ID. I have been trying to do this by changing the font-family property in the site-wide Custom CSS (since I do not want to change the font for any other pages). I'm not using custom fonts; I am happy to use the Squarespace, but I do not know what the exact "labels" are for these various fonts. Some, like "Arial" are straightforward, but others (e.g., "Libre Baskerville" or "Omnes Pro") do not seem to be changing the font appropriately. Any advice would be helpful! Or even, more generally -- and since I am a novice to CSS -- are there helpful tips for knowing how to convert font names to acceptable arguments for the "font-family" property? The current code I am using is below:

#collection-62c85f073082c37e42edc553 {
  
  header#header {
    display:none;
  }
  
  h1 {
    font-family: "Libre Baskerville";
  }
}

To know exact font name, you will need to inspect code, need to know code.

Just write the fonts which you want to know name, we can give the font name code

Unfortunately, I have altered my code and it still does not work in changing the font. Below is my attempt to change the font-family property in the site-wide Custom CSS using one of the provided font codes you gave: "adobe-garamond-pro" to change the H1 heading. I've also tried this with the other codes you provided (e.g., "ff-tisa-sans-web-pro"; "brandon-grotesque", "Cabin"), to no avail. Thanks in advance.

 

#collection-62c85f073082c37e42edc553 {
    header#header {
    display:none;
  }
  
  h1 {
    font-family: "adobe-garamond-pro";
  }
}

In order to use a specific font  in CSS, it has to be selected as a font for something else so that Squarespace loads the font onto the website first.
SS has thousands of fonts, by default SS only loads some popular fonts, it can't load all otherwise the website will be extremely slow. In order to use font   in CSS, it has to be selected as a font for something else so that Squarespace loads the font onto the website first.

I see, thank you. My goal is to have fonts on this page (http://www.ungsonlab.com/erin-nick) that are not used anywhere else on the site. What are my options for doing this? How else could I make sure these fonts are "selected as a font for something else so that Squarespace loads the font" without using Design / Site Styles to change the H1 or H2 or body text for the entire rest of the site? Are there other ways to change fonts than Design / Site Styles? Am I missing a rich text editor somewhere? Thanks for your help.

You can set 

adobe-garamond-pro

for any elements on Site Styles, to force Squarespace load that font, then you can use above CSS to apply font for h1 on onepage

Thank you! This worked. I believe this will be my final question. Your suggestion helped me change the font for the one page for Headings 1 (h1), 2 (h3), and 3 (h3). See code below. However, I was unable to change the "body" text with the same method, and I am not sure why. The code below properly changes Headings 1, 2, and 3, but not the body text. Thanks in advance.

#collection-62c85f073082c37e42edc553 {
    header#header {
    display:none;
  }
  
  h1 {
    font-family: "Sorts Mill Goudy";
  }
    h2 {
    font-family: "Sorts Mill Goudy";
  }
    h3 {
    font-family: "Sorts Mill Goudy";
  }
    body {
    font-family: "Sorts Mill Goudy";
  }
}

Try replace "body" with "p"
