Can I change the default font site-wide without CSS?

Nick 4 years ago in BLOX CMS updated by Christine Masters (Director of Product Management) 4 years ago 1

I have CSS access but there are several places where font is being called within the CSS. Does Zen or Flex allow the default font to be changed somewhere in the site customizations, url customizations or page customizations?

On Zen it is difficult to do because when we built Zen, we didn't really have a unifying CSS framework, so there are many different classes with different styles. So you have to get a list of all the classes to hit with CSS, and even then you'd probably miss some.


You should be able to hit the article page headline, or perhaps the titles or headline on the front page, which will give you a different look and feel, but it won't be the equivalent of changing the font everywhere.


On Flex we do have site styles which usually change your font. In addition, since we use Bootstrap, it is much easier to just change the Bootstrap defaults in order to make big changes on your site with very little code! =)
