Font Choices

Heading Fonts

Heading Fonts

We are making a concerted effort to rein in the varied font choices made available in past versions of our CMS. Because of this, you will notice that h1 – h6 are the current choices available in the “format” drop down menu. Due to a limitation of the TinyMCE editor the heading fonts display as pictured here with a black bold font with decreasing size as you go down from h1 to h6. In actuality “Heading 1” is a large green font, “Heading 2” is gold and so on. You can try these recommended fonts via trial and error or you can view the Font Guidelines page to get a good idea of what is available visually.

We want to eventually get rid of all of the legacy font choices that many sites are still using today and use the newly recommended heading fonts. We also hope to restructure our current heading selections with the next website redesign. We will send detailed instructions to website owners when we are ready to make these changes globally. Until then, if you are in OU working on your pages, please consider changing your headings to one of these new heading fonts.
