    Fira Sans Font – Make Light

    Hi, on Modern Theme, the default font is Fira Sans with weight 400 or 500. I would like to make the default font for my customization to be the Fira Sans Light (Fira Sans with weight 300). How do I do that?

    When I go to Customizing > Theme Options > Typography > Custom Fonts, and put “Fira Sans Light” in place of “Fira Sans”, it doesn’t work. I get Times New Roman instead.

    I went to this Custom CSS and put this, then it worked:

    p {

    But when I do this, the font-weight in the editors don’t change. How can I make it so that everything is based on the default weight 300 including the text editors and forms without having to change it individually?

    Thank you,

    Oliver Juhas

    Hi Theodore,

    As described at Appearance → Customize → Theme Options → Typography → Custom Fonts Setup, once you disable the theme fonts (that’s why the Times New Roman is displayed, which is most likely a default font on your browser on your operating system), you need to use a plugin to load your custom fonts into your website. Please use one of font plugins to load the Fira Sans Light font from Google Fonts.

    Then you can apply your custom CSS. However, as far as I know there is no easy way of applying custom CSS for WordPress editor. You can try searching some plugin that can do this for you, but unfortunately, I haven’t heard of any, so I can’t really provide any recommendation here.

    If you are using a new WordPress 5.0+ editor (also called Gutenberg), you can add your custom CSS via your child theme using a code.

    Best regards,
