We have the latest EE4. Currently emails generated out of EE4 (such as registration approved etc) in our theme have a Helvetica 10.5 font. We would like to change this to Calabri 11 – is there an easy way we can do this (am guessing additional CSS in wordpress?)
You are correct, this is something where you’d add CSS. There’s a plugin you can use to help get you started. Here’s a link to where you can download the plugin code:
After you downloaded the zip file, you’ll install the plugin using the WordPress > Plugins > Add New page. Then activate the plugin.
Then, you edit the plugin’s css/email_styles.css file. There are two places where it sets font-family. They’ll look like this:
Then save the file.
Please note the included additional fonts. That’s called a “font stack” and the reason for including those is because Calibri can only be used if the computer/device displaying the email has Calibri installed. Most phones and tablets do not have Calibri so the additional typefaces can be used as a fallback.
