// Function Which helps to show Font family toolbar on the editor
function myformatTinyMCE($in)
{
$in['remove_linebreaks']=false;
$in['gecko_spellcheck']=false;
$in['keep_styles']=true;
$in['accessibility_focus']=true;
$in['tabfocus_elements']='major-publishing-actions';
$in['media_strict']=false;
$in['paste_remove_styles']=false;
$in['paste_remove_spans']=false;
$in['paste_strip_class_attributes']='none';
$in['paste_text_use_dialog']=true;
$in['wpeditimage_disable_captions']=true;
$in['plugins']='inlinepopups,tabfocus,paste,media,fullscreen,wordpress,wpeditimage,wpgallery,wplink,wpdialogs,wpfullscreen';
$in['content_css']=get_template_directory_uri() . "/editor-style.css";
$in['wpautop']=true;
$in['apply_source_formatting']=false;
$in['theme_advanced_buttons1']='formatselect,fontselect,forecolor,|,bold,italic,underline,|,bullist,numlist,blockquote,|,justifyleft,justifycenter,justifyright,justifyfull,|,link,unlink,|,wp_fullscreen,wp_adv';
$in['theme_advanced_buttons2']='pastetext,pasteword,removeformat,|,charmap,|,outdent,indent,|,undo,redo';
$in['theme_advanced_buttons3']='';
$in['theme_advanced_buttons4']='';
$in['theme_advanced_fonts']='Coda=Coda' ;
return $in;
}
add_filter('tiny_mce_before_init', 'myformatTinyMCE' );

After the step add the following code into your style sheet file.(Style.css).

@font-face {
font-family: 'Conv_coda';
src: url('coda.eot');
src: local('?'), url('coda.woff') format('woff'), url('coda.ttf') format('truetype'), url('coda.svg') format('svg');
font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;
}

After all you TinyMCE Editor Support your custom font. and one more thing , you have to link the font on your html header section, and WordPress user include the line on your theme “Style.css” .

 

2. How to add Google fonts in WP  TinyMCE Editor ?

Instead of using the @font-face in your Style-sheet. You can directly use Google font importer .

@import url('http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Coda');

The above line will include the font directly from Google web fonts.

 

3. How to add New  fonts in TinyMCE Editor Without php code ?

If you are customizing your TinyMCE editor Directly for your custom project, The following code will help you to add new fonts. Open your tinyMCE folder, than “tinymce\themes\advanced\fonts” initially Fonts folder is not available, you have to create it.

Than paste your font files here. you font files are having “ttf, woff, eot, svg” Extension, and include your font-face on a stylesheet

@font-face {
font-family: 'Conv_coda';
src: url('coda.eot');
src: local('?'), url('coda.woff') format('woff'), url('coda.ttf') format('truetype'), url('coda.svg') format('svg');
font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;
}

In advance folder, there are two js files are there , namely, “editor_template.js, editor_template_src.js” . open it both on your text editor, than find the words “theme_advanced_fonts” after that add a small piece of code for attach your font file into the TinyMCE editor.

theme_advanced_fonts : "Coda=Coda;"

Than  you must write the same line on both files “ editor_template.js, editor_template_src.js” .

Now, you need to to give the path for reading of your custom fonts. So find the word “ content_css” on both files, than add a small piece of code into it, like this ” content_css : “path/to/style_sheet_which_contains your custom font info” ;
