Does anyone know how to change the font for the navbar to a font that is not listed for Ning 2.0? 

I would like to have Amaranth font for my Nav selectlon. 

I would like to use it site wide as well if that can be done.

    Yes.. go to the page for the font

    choose your font weights

    add this to the top of Custom Code

    <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Amaranth&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">

    Then go into Design Studio and add the following

    nav.header-nav.navbar {font-family: 'Amaranth', sans-serif;!important}

     

     

    hope this helps

  • Thanks! ...but it's not working. 

    Perhaps I'm putting your Design Studio code in the wrong spot. I just pasted it directly at the top (like the Custom Code) hit Publish and... nothing. 

    Here is what my Design Studio looks like (with your code at top): 

    nav.header-nav.navbar {font-family: 'Amaranth', sans-serif;!important}
    /* END Amaranth Font */

    • It looks like you have a semi colun before the important which may stop it working, here in bold

      nav.header-nav.navbar {font-family: 'Amaranth', sans-serif;!important}

      Try it by removing the semi colon like this

      nav.header-nav.navbar {font-family: 'Amaranth', sans-serif!important}

      • Thanks Bizz, but it still didn't do anything.
