OpenSans FTW


OpenSans FTW is just a simple plugin that brings back the old Open Sans font to WordPress 4.6+ dashboard.

So… Keep calm and use Open Sans! 🙂

I’m a fan of minimizing requests, but I also love cross-platform consistency. So thanks for bringing back OpenSans!

Thank you very much for this useful plugin! We criticize the choice of founding WP Dashboard only on system font, now WP is horrible on macOS! But thanks to your plugin we have Open Sans again 🙂

Thanks for this! TL;DR While on Mac OS the San Francisco font is tolerable (although my eyes are very much used to Open Sans), opening my dashboards on a Windows machine made me instantly grumpy. This trend with OS-default fonts is the crappiest trend ever.. This can sometimes be a bad idea even for a native app, yet there are folks that think this is a good idea for websites/web-based stuff. It’s definitely NOT good, it’s just lazy, ugly and monotonous. @font-face was created for a reason, folks! And what about unified cross-platform user experience? I’m not prepared to answer to my clients on support threads when they ask me why my dashboard screenshots look different than it looks to them… Sorry for the long rant, I just had to say it. Now thanks again for this plugin. Live long and prosper! 🙂

Thank you so much. Whoever at the Wordpress team had the idea to change to system default fonts (reminds me of the old times when every website had one of the same five fonts) should be tarred and feathered. What a $%§&% idea! Salvation thanks to your plugin. Now I can relax.
