So you extend the free
Fonts in WordPress

With WordPress you can create your own blog relatively comfortably and quickly. And even more so, the popular open source software has evolved into a solid content management system (CMS) in recent years that is finding more and more followers.

But of course, with the proliferation, the demands of users on such software grow.

The number of available fonts, and above all their customization options are a bit meager in our view, and so surely some people here wish for a little more choice.

The solution is as usual in WordPress in the appropriate plugin.
