Unicorn Platform provides the 150 most popular fonts from Google Fonts library by default. You can connect each of them easily in the Website Settings.

However, if none of the default fonts fit your needs, you can connect a custom font by using CSS code.

In this guide, you will learn how to connect any font from Google Fonts library, or a self-hosted font.

Google Fonts

Google Fonts is a huge collection of free and open-source fonts families. Thanks to the Google Fonts API, the process of connecting their fonts is as easy as copy/pasting a few lines of code.

Step 1/5

Pick any font and select the required font styles. Then, click on the menu at the top right corner:

Select the font styles and open the menu

<style>
.comps.custom_fonts.live_website *{
font-family: "Hubballi" !important;
}

.comps.custom_fonts.live_website h2,
.comps.custom_fonts.live_website h3,
.comps.custom_fonts.live_website h4,

Self-hosted fonts

If you would like to connect a font that is not on Google Fonts, you can do it with a different custom code. But first, you need to upload the required font variations to a file hosting and get the source URLs.

Step 1/3

Copy this code:

<style>
@font-face {
font-family: 'gotham-rounded-light';
src: url('https://ucarecdn.com/aaadbc48-2a06-4e47-94a0-bcacc47c60ed/GothamRoundedLight.otf') format('opentype');
}
@font-face {
font-family: 'gotham-rounded-bold';
src: url('https://ucarecdn.com/bd4b1562-83a0-4f0b-963e-d604cafe4315/GothamRoundedBold.otf') format('opentype');
}
.comps.custom_fonts.live_website *{
font-family: "gotham-rounded-light" !important;
}

.comps.custom_fonts.live_website h1,
.comps.custom_fonts.live_website h2,
.comps.custom_fonts.live_website h3,
.comps.custom_fonts.live_website h4,
.comps.custom_fonts.live_website h5,
.comps.custom_fonts.live_website h6 {
font-family: "gotham-rounded-bold" !important;
}
</style>


Step 2/3

Paste it into the Website Settings > Custom code > <head> section:

The pasted code

Step 3/3

Replace the source URLs with your own ones (make sure to keep the quotes):

The URLs that you need to replace

You should have a source URL for all required font styles. In the example code, we have 2 variations: bold and regular.

You can replace the font-family name with any other custom name:

You can change the font family name
