Steps to Upload Font to Wix
Let's delve into the process of uploading your custom font to your Wix webpage. In a straightforward 9-step guide, you will learn how to upload a font file from your computer to Wix and verify if the upload was successful. So, let's get started.
Step 1. Sign In to Wix Account
First of all, visit the site Wix.com, then click on the login at the left side of the Wix site.
Start by logging into your account on Wix.com. To do this, you need to input your email and password. Once signed in, you'll gain access to your account dashboard, where you have the ability to design or modify your site.
If you haven't yet acquired a Wix premium plan, it's advisable to purchase one. Following the acquisition of your plan, navigate through your Wix account accordingly.
Step 2. Click on the the ‘My Sites’
You are currently viewing your Wix account dashboard on your screen. To proceed, locate the "My Sites" option at the top section of the dashboard, typically found in the header. Clicking on this option will reveal all the sites you've previously designed.
Step 3. Click on the ‘Edit Site’
In this stage, you're required to choose the site where you wish to incorporate the desired font. Displayed on your screen are all of your existing websites. Using the Wix Editor, you can modify or adjust these sites to meet your specific needs.
Once you've made your selection, you'll notice an "Edit Site" option in the top-right corner of your screen. Proceed by clicking on this.
Step 4. Click on the ‘Text Box’
Next, identify a text box on your Wix webpage. It's not important which text box you choose; you can pick any from the entire webpage. To add or upload your custom font, simply click on your chosen 'Text Box.'
Step 5. Click on the ‘Edit Text’
Next, within the selected text box, you'll need to locate the 'Edit Text' option, which is typically found at the bottom of the text box.
Clicking on 'Edit Text' will open a pop-up where you can modify the content within this box, enabling you to make necessary adjustments or additions to your website text.
Step 6. Click on the ‘Fonts’
Since you want to add a custom font to your Wix website, you need to access the ‘Fonts dropdown’ menu. This menu is in the pop-up window that appeared when you clicked 'Edit Text' in the previous step.
By clicking on this dropdown, you will be able to view and select from various font options for your site.
Step 7. Click on the ‘Upload Fonts’
Upon clicking the 'Fonts Dropdown,' you'll be able to view all the fonts that Wix provides for your website. You can select any of these fonts to suit your text requirements.
Moreover, if you wish to further customize your text style according to your preference, you can upload your font. To do this, simply click on 'Upload Fonts.' This allows you to add a personal touch to your webpage, making it unique and representative of your brand.
Upon selecting 'Upload Fonts,' a new window will appear on your screen, as demonstrated in the screenshot below. In this window, you can proceed by clicking on the 'Upload Fonts' button, which is highlighted in orange.
Step 8. Upload File From the Computer
Once you've completed the previous step, a new window will open, prompting you to select the desired font file from your computer. This file will then be uploaded and added to 'My Fonts' on your Wix webpage.
Simply select the extracted font file, in this example, it's 'Health Stone' - and then click 'Open' at the bottom of the window to finalize the process.
Step 9. Confirmation of Uploading Font
After clicking 'Open,' you'll be redirected back to the window, as seen in step 7, where the font upload process begins. Once the font file has been successfully uploaded, it is highlighted in green, indicating a successful upload. This means your custom font is ready for use on your Wix webpage.
You can revisit the' Fonts Dropdown' menu to verify that your custom font has been successfully added to Wix's library. Your newly uploaded font - in this instance, 'Health Stone' - should be visible under 'My Fonts,' typically at the top of the pop-up window.
