  2. Hi,

    I am working on a clients website, using WordPress/Canvas theme.

    My client is keen to add some new google fonts to the existing list supplied within Canvas. To be exact, he wants to use a certain font for the primary navigation bar.

    Do you have any tutorials on this or could you point me in the correct direction to install and select the chosen font?

    Much appreciated

  3. Hello Adam,
    Have been looking for a Theme and going nuts. Most look good till you try to customize something and I hit the wall. Got used to Thesis then they upgraded and its like learning all over.
    Is Canvas your top choice ?

    • Hi Michael,

      The type of theme you choose really depends on what you're trying to accomplish. For example, if you're planning on adding on a store to your current site, TheSnorelessPillow.com, then you should look at a woocommerce integrated site like WooStore, Mystile, Coquette or Wootique. All of them can be customized to an extent via the Theme Options panel. If you're starting new, then Canvas is a good option because its probably the most flexible of all the woocommerce integrated themes. I know I didn't give you a specific answer and that's because it really just comes down to choosing a theme that looks closest to what you're going for and then figuring out how to customize it from there.

    • Hi Melino,

      Make sure your Reading setting are set to a Static page. To double check that do the following… In the WordPress admin go to Settings > Reading > for "Front Page Displays" select the "A Static Page" radio button > front page select Magazine.

      Also, check your Menus setup. To do that go to Appearance > Menus > there you can control the display of your Primary Navigation

  5. I`ve got some troubles with boxed layout. When I activate boxed layout option there is no margin/padding between primary navigation and border. Primary navigation is from left to the right border like in this film. There is no option to set primary navigation margin or boxed layout padding left/right. Just top/bottom option.
