Not sure if this can be done, but I am redesigning my website and want to use the super flat theme. I am a Silver member but like the look of the super flat. On my website at the moment I use the Reisling font in my banner and want to use this font in the banner area of the new design, but can't fin a way to upload this. Currently the font is embedded in a picture banner and saved as a .JPEG.

Any help very wecome

Hello A

Using custom fonts can cause problems with older browser versions or computers that don't have the font installed. That's why it's better to add the font you want to an image file, so that it becomes part of the image. If you have downloaded the Reisling font to your computer, you could use Microsoft Paint to achieve this.

Hello A,

Squirrel Font have a webfont kit for embedding in your website which will allow others then to see the font as you have it in your sitebuilder. The Riesling Font is already for download and is OK to use for websites without an explicit license.

Diane has written a tutorial of how to do this for Yola websites Using Custom Fonts on Your Yola Website -- A Yola Silver Tutorial and I think it's suitable for the Superflat style.
The Riesling webfont kit for immediate download is http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/Rie....

Click on the download button then upload it into your File Manager and simply follow Diane's tutorial. It will successfully embed itself into your published website for users to see.
