Adding MyFonts custom fonts


I just purchased a font collection from MyFonts and I am confused as to the best method of adding it to the theme. A few of the forum help links are unavailable and I’m sure some of the things I have read are out of date, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

MyFonts supplies a Webfont Kit, although I presume I can bypass most of the instructions provided and use Font Manager in X. Each font comes with a .woff and .woff2 file. Can I simply use Font Manager’s custom font import to import (one or both?) files and then use the Insert Headers and Footers plugins to add the following to all pages (omitting the final line?):

* @license
* MyFonts Webfont Build ID 113473
* The fonts listed in this notice are subject to the End User License
* Agreement(s) entered into by the website owner. All other parties are
* explicitly restricted from using the Licensed Webfonts(s).
* You may obtain a valid license from one of MyFonts official sites.
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="MyFontsWebfontsKit.css">

I have spent a great deal of time researching previously problems, only to find there is a simple solution after visiting this forum, so thought I would ask. Basically, will the above work and take care of all the heavy lifting and if not, what do I need to do?


Hello @Paul_Hill_Guitarist,

Thanks for writing to us.

In case if you want a custom font, you need to have a WOFF format font file. To import custom font please have a look at our doc to learn more about how t import custom font.

You can also check the video that I have shared in the secure note.


Thanks for the information. It was all rather easy once I started experimenting. Now I have fonts working, do I need to add the licensing information to my pages and if so, is the easiest method via the header and footer plugin?

Hello @Paul_Hill_Guitarist,

In case if you are talking about the custom font license, it is not required to add the license. In case if you are using the Adobe font then you need to link your font projects to import the font.

Hope it helps

Nice one, thanks!

You are most welcome @Paul_Hill_Guitarist
