It depends on your browser, if you're on mobile most of the fronst won't be visible to you despite adding them.

One font you can use is Times New Roman

Just add the name of the font after putting an equal sign like dis

[font (=) blablahkickass]
*words here*
[/font]

le example

YOLO YOLO heheh

Prolly not
But for example [ f o n t = c h i l l e r ] t e s t [ / f o n t ] without any spaces turns out like test

I know it's been a while, but I thought I'd flesh this out a bit more.

Code: Select all

[font=fontname]Text Goes Here[/font]
should be what you're looking for.

So

Code: Select all

[font=impact]Text in Impact Font[/font]
Gives you
Text in Impact Font

The fonts I have seen working:
Arial
Arial Black
Calibri
Castellar
Consolas
Constantia
Corbel
Courier New
Franklin Gothic Medium
Gabriola
Impact
Lucida Console
Lucida Sans Unicode
Microsoft Sans Serif
Tahoma
Trebuchet MS
Verdana

There are probably others, but that's a decent starter list - hope it helps!

Same, and I'm using a PC. Only ones that seem to look the way they should are the Comic Sans. And even Comic Sans looks like plaintext on my phone.

It might depend on the browser, the device, and the fonts you already have installed on your device, since it's not RPF that actually hosts the fonts. I know that it definitely doesn't work on phones, for example.

They're definitely working from my end and from a good few others, so it's not entirely pointless.

It depends what fonts the individual user has installed. Fonts that aren't installed on the device won't show up at all. On my screen, the ones in my post plus Comic Sans out of Reyn's appear as unique fonts, but the rest of Reyn's don't appear any different. Most of the ones I listed come as defaults, so they don't require the user to have done any special font installations or updates to their device.
