Principles: Typography Manager

The Obox Typography manager allows you to set your own custom typography for major text elements such as post titles and post content without having to modify theme stylesheets or templates. Because it is a general tool provided as part of the OCMX framework, please note that it may not cover 100% of all text elements on your site, and does not include 100% of the Google Font library. See the link at the bottom of this article for how to access extended typography control via WP Google Fonts. Go to Theme OptionsTypography. Once the page loads you will be presented with two tabs, Typography and Overview.

Typography Tab

In the typography section you will see a menu of elements on the left and a list of font families on the right.
  1. Select the site element that you would like to edit from that menu.
  2. Click the thumbnail for the font you would like to use for that element.
  3. Set a new font size if desired, or leave the default and click Save Changes
If you don't like your changes then simply press the Reset link to start over. typo-manager

How do I apply my own styling without using the Typography Manager?

If you would like to use your own font styling then we suggest adding your styles using Custom CSS. For basic style changes, check out our KB or Tips & Tricks.
