The Obox Typography Manager is a basic customization tool available in OCMX in supported themes. This tool allows you to customize a handful of elements within the theme to use one of the available Google fonts. Not all elements in every theme are covered by the Typography Manager- only common elements such as the main navigation menu, post titles, widget titles, and essentially what the tabs declare.  Themes that use the WordPress Customizer to create custom color schemes will also have issues with colors in the Typography manager where they have not been disabled – the Typography manager colors will overwrite all other colors. As such, thems with unique elements require Custom CSS or the WP Google Font plugin to get complete and total facelift of the fonts in all areas.

The Solution

If you are using Personal, see this article.

Below is an explanation of what the Typography Manager covers:


Affects your main menu only

Post Meta:

Affects the date, author and category shown below the post titles.

Post Titles:

Affects post titles only. Will not affect pages/portfolio

Post Copy:

Changes the content text in posts and pages specifically.

Widget Titles:

Affects widgets in the sidebar only

 Customizing Fonts Further

To change fonts individually, the font must be active in the Typography manager, or you can download and use the Wp-Google Fonts plugin from Plugins > Add New. Custom styles for fonts activated in the Typography Manager can be placed into the theme’s Custom CSS to affect specific elements. Example:

Footer Navigation, where Font Name is the name of the font in the Typography Manager.:

#nav-footer li a{ font-family: ‘Font Name’, sans-serif !important; font-size: 14px !important;}

Titles on Portfolios, where the font is Droid Sans and the size and color are also customized:

font-family: ‘Droid-Sans’, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif !important;
font-size: 38px !important;
color: #f00 !important;
