How to Enqueue Google Fonts to WordPress functions.php

Last updated on | 4 replies

1. Visit Google Fonts

Visit and select the fonts and weights you require. You should see a Review window to the right of the screen.

Click Embed and copy the href value, in this example:,wght@0,400;0,700;1,400;1,700&display=swap

Also take note of CSS rules to specify families as you will need to add this to your CSS file.

In this example we are adding the Open Sans font in weights 400 and 700, and italics.

2. Add to functions.php

Add the following code to the end of functions.php in your WordPress theme folder.

function google_fonts() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'google-fonts', ',wght@0,400;0,700;1,400;1,700&display=swap', false );
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'google_fonts' );

3. Add your CSS

In your CSS style sheet, you can now set the font family, in this example, Open Sans.

font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif;
