Change font type and size of Site Title (Title of the entire website)


I would like to change the font type and size of the Site Title (the title of the website that appears on the top of the front page).

I looked through the forum and saw suggestions like

h1.entry-title { font-family: helvetica; }

This changes the title of the post not the site title.

h1#site-title { font-family: monospace; } h2#site-description { font-family: serif; }

This does not work.

Can someone help with this? Thanks!

Hi @wanderer74,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your questions.

You can try achieving this by adding the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of your theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Activello Options -> Other -> Custom CSS a {
    font-family: arial;
    font-size: 35px;

Please change the font family and font size in the above code to whatever you want to set.

Best Regards,


Thanks so much for answering such a commonly asked question.

I tried to change the font to “Monotype Corsiva” and it was ok on my laptop. But the font does not appear on my Ipad or Iphone. Is it because it is not a web safe font? Any solution to make the font appear on most devices?

Yes this is because it’s not websafe font but you can use it on your site as described on the below pages.
