  4. Fonts

    The fonts used in the template are: PS Fournier: Light Reason New: Regular and Medium You’ll need to add these fonts to a new web project in your Adobe Typekit account and paste the unique ID into the code below.

    Using different fonts

    If you want to use your own fonts you’ll need to add custom overrides beneath the CSS in the code below. You can see the original CSS at the following link: https://iamsamsmall.github.io/cy/style.css

    /* Here are the names of the font families in the code. Search for them so you know which lines to override in your customisations. */

Check that all navigation labels and links are correct and that they point to the right pages. Note, they do not automatically update when you amend page names or add new pages.
Add pretty links for your pages, projects, and articles into Super’s pretty URL settings. By default you’ll need to use projects/ and writing/, you can amend these if you want but you’ll need to add CSS overrides.
