Fonts


Post updated: October 9, 2011. 7:32 in the evening

Did another experiment and did a little magic. I added and used a custom font (Special Elite) and defined the font in my blog CSS. Hooray! I did it! Thanks so much for the tip, Fang.

.................................

Hi, guys.

This would be brief.

I did a little experiment on my blog yesterday. I added some codes and changed my page text font.. from "calibri" to "special elite". However, unless you (my readers/visitors) download and install the said font to your laptop/pc, you won't be able to view the new page text font.

I really think that this "special elite" font is totally cute. Don't get me wrong. "Calibri" is a very nice font. I wanted try something new, that's why I added the codes. But it didn't work out quite as I had expected. Sadly, I had to change it back to "calibri".

Oh well.. Still smiling. Have a wonderful day, lovely people! ♥ ☺ ♥

    Hindi ako marunong magbago ng mga font sa blog basta kung anong available yun na lang ginagamit. PIpili na lang ng pinakagusto. hehe

  6. I love the calbiri, too! Next favorite ko Arial. The simpler the font, mas gusto ko :D

    Gusto ko din matuto magbasa ng braille someday :D

    Stick with Cabibri nalang :D

  8. You can actually link the font t your site so it's temporarily downloaded when we want to view it, allowing us to view it in the correct font anyway! Try searching Google for custom font html css

  12. Yay, you did it! 8D
    You may want to be careful with page performance, though. Custom fonts can be a bit of a heavy element. try running your blog using your slow internet connection, see how it goes. If it's to slow, remove some heavy JavaScript from your blog ;D

  21. @Nowitzki Tramonto Yes!! hehe.. Nakakakalbo, pero kinaya. haha.. wala pa naman akong ideya sa mga CSS churva. I searched the net for some CSS tutorials, tapos yun na, follow follow lang the instructions. I'm so lucky I got it right. hehe..

  22. @Fang Yay!! I really did it!! :D Thanks, Fang..

    Ah yeah, I used Google API, it is said to be the best method in adding fonts, and it doesn't affect the loading time. :) I chose the special elite font from the "Google Web Fonts" link.. :D

    With my slow net connection, the blog's running ok.. loading time, not slow, not fast either.. OK. :) I deleted some of the unimportant scripts.. hehe.

    Again.. thanks, Fang! :D

  30. Yeah! This is great, you found a balance between fancy and readable, which is rare, I must say! Many blogs have fancy and pretty fonts, thinking it makes their blog better, when really, I just can't read anything they've blurted out. Good job and if I had twitter I would follow you :).
