Add a Google font to a WordPress theme

The easiest way to use a Google font in a self-hosted WordPress theme is probably to use a CDN link.

That is: you don’t download and host the fonts yourself, but you use a “CDN link” to a Google server to fetch the font for the viewer.

It is super easy!

1. Go to and select the font you want and customize font-weight and language, if you need to.

2. If your code is something like:

<link href=",700&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">

then copy only the part that says:,700

3. In your functions.php file paste that link in your style/script enqueue. See the example below:

function themename_scripts() {
	wp_enqueue_style( 'themename-google-font-lora', ',700', false );
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'themename_scripts' );
