The Google font directory is a collection of fonts hosted on Google servers and available for use on your website under an open source license. Unlike the CSS font-face system they work on all browsers (even IE6) and unlike flash embedded systems the fonts are completely search engine friendly.

Install the zip file via the administration install manager as per any other plugin. Once it has installed go to the plugin manager and select HD-Gfonts. Enable the plugin, choose the font from the parameters list and click on apply.


Its a good plugin. however a plugin extra will have extra load , pls try to use the googlefont directly using the code provided in the gfont site itselves. No plugins needed.


Fantastic

Was looking to implement Google fonts in a template and I found HD. Downloaded, installed and it was set up within minutes. In fact, extending it to include more fonts was fast and easy. Thanks for such an excellent product and for making this free! I am definitely checking out your other products.


Perfect!

It was easy to install, easy to configure and works perfectly. I have checked it in Chrome, IE and FF and no issues. I was trying to manhandle Google font use on my own by hacking the template and I wonder why I didn't do this earlier. Time is money - this extension would have saved me a lot of both!


Excellent plugin, simple to use with an abundant number of fonts to choose from. Documentation is easy to read with images to help. Definitely 5 stars for this little gem.


Bravo!

Thank you very much for this plugin. Makes my work really enjoyable. Please include more google fonts (ie. Sans) on the next release. Bravo!


One client asked me to change font style of menu at last moment. I searched for way out and find out this easy to use plugin. I believe it is wrong if I am not rating this extension excellent.


This plug in is easy, comes with clear instructions, and can be applied to any one or multiple classes of text in your site.

The downside for me is that it applies globally. i.e. Select a font for paragraph text, and the entire site changes. This is probably what a lot of people want, but for me, I'd like to see an editor button in the article editor to apply as and when. It does what it says....


Awesome!

What an excellent tool.



Easy to use and works like a charm.



This was my workflow.

I went into firebug.

Selected a piece of text. Copied all the classes from the firebug menu. Pasted them into the extension. And lo and behold. (Dont forget to add comma's between the different classes you want to influence.)

All my text updated without a problem.

It gave the site i am working on a completely different look.



GREAT WORK!!


Excellent, just installed and implemented for article body text (P) and H1 H2 etc... Unlike the review below this states, that it only works with content area, I managed to get it to change my horizontal menu fonts. Now my menu has nice font and blur effects!



Did find one bug though, and im suprised it hasnt been mentioned unless its just my install. The first Font slot works fine, but the second I couldn't get working. Thru firebug I can see that its trying to style .table for some odd reason... whilst the other slots style nothing by default.


Works - with a hitch.

I would review this extension as Great, but unfortunately it was written as a content plugin.



This means that you can not use it for page title and component headings, It can only display google fonts INSIDE of content items.



If this were to be rewritten as a system plugin it would be alot more useful. It is amazing that there is no good system wide google fonts plugin yet.



This plugin could be the de-facto standard like kc_cufon is for cufon - if only it worked system wide...

Give each page on your Joomla website an individual and unique style with a Custom CSS module. HD-Custom CSS is a simple module that allows you to style pages individually from the rest of the site. Just as the Custom HTML module allows you to insert HTML on a specific page, the Custom CSS module allows you override styles for a specific page. Joomla's template structure assigns the same CSS file(s) to each and every page resulting in a framework of similar looking pages. With a custom CSS module you can broaden the scope of your design by having a different background image on every page, varying the module position sizes, applying different fonts, font colours, hyperlink behaviours, rollover effects or column widths.

HD-Background Selector is a simple module that allows you to apply a different background style to individual pages on your Joomla website. You can select background colours, images or repeated patterns. It can be applied to the main background or to specific elements on your site (eg. module positions, columns, headers, footers, main content box, etc). You can also use this to apply random backgrounds, multiple overlaid backgrounds or day-specific backgrounds Joomla's templates generally have the same background style for each and every page. By applying this module to a specific page the background can be styled individually from the others, increasing the variety of your design without resorting to using multiple templates.

HD-QuickIcons

HD-QuickIcons is a modified version of Joomla's standard "Quick Icons" admin module (which is displayed on the main administrator control panel and is the first thing you see when you log in). As useful as the current quick icon links module is, if you want to customize the links you have to amend the source code (which may be overwritten during an update). This module lets you easily change the layout, allowing you to display only the links you feel are necessary and relevant. Hiding unnecessary icon links can also make the control panel seem less daunting for clients and reduces the risk of them wandering around in places where you don't want them. Furthermore you are also able to provide more specific linking, so the Menu icon can now point to a specific menu (rather than to the menu manager as a whole) or the Template icon can point directly to a specific template (rather than to the template manager - which is still a further two clicks away from your current template page).

HD-Open Graph

HD-OG is a plugin that embeds Open Graph metadata into your web pages. This is the markup used by Facebook to map and categorise websites into it's own social search engine. The metadata includes standard information (such as page title, type, URL, description & site name) as well as location information (latitude, longitude, address, region and country) and contact details (email address, telephone number & fax number). Google may dominate the search engine scene and attract more traffic than any other site but Facebook comes a close second. The Open Graph Protocol is an attempt to link Facebook with the rest of the web, creating Facebook’s own extensive and highly interactive version of a search engine. This plugin ensures that the correct data is displayed when someone tries to share a link to your site on Facebook. The graph "type" ensures that your site is categorized in the correct section (eg. website, blog, product, food, sport, news) and it also includes metadata to mark up your location and contact details. Latest version now supports the Article Manager's "intro image" facility. If the page is article based and an "intro image" is found, this will be displayed as the Facebook thumbnail image. If no "intro image" is found, the default selected image is used instead.

HD-DropDownDiv

HD-DropDownDIv allows you to display article contents in a "drop down menu" style, allowing you to create complex image laden menus that are not restricted to the standard Joomla menu format. It was built primarily to make complex "mega-menus" easier to construct and even easier to edit. Amending the content of the drop down is as simple as editing an article via the article manager. Usually a drop down menu displays a list of links generated by the Joomla menu manager and displayed in the "unordered list" style. However this module displays "divs" of HTML pulled from seperate articles, allowing you to break free of the standard menu format. Therefore the layout in one column could be of a completely different format to the rest.

HD-ArticleMod is a small module that enables you to display a single Joomla article in a module position. This extension was developed for a client who was comfortable with editing articles and wanted to be able edit the content of various module positions in the same way. As there were a huge amount of modules already installed on the site, navigating the module manager for a specific custom HTML module seemed a daunting prospect. Once the module was set up the client was fully capable of editing content in the left and right module positions without having to access the module manager.

Don't have your modules cooped up in Menu Items. Use HD-ModURL to add free range HTML to any URL on your Joomla site. HD-ModURL is a module that outputs HTML to a Joomla page depending on the URL rather than the menu item. It is ideal for adding text, images or other HTML code to a single page that shares the same menu item as various other pages (eg. Blog pages, Virtuemart product pages or other components). Sometimes you don’t want to apply a module to a menu item, you want to apply it to a specific URL. HD-ModURL checks the URL of the page that it is applied to and will only render your HTML if it matches the URL that has been specified. Therefore many different instances of HD-ModURL can be applied to the same menu item but only the ones that match the correct URL will be displayed.

A jQuery powered responsive image slideshow for Joomla 2.5. This module scales the images to fit the screen and caters for different browsers and mobile devices. It is was built primarily to be used on responsive templates, meaning it can resize the images depending on which screen it is viewed on. It also includes a browser/device sniffer function so you can select which device or browser it should appear on (iphones, Android devices, ipads, etc). More importantly, it's a very easy to use image slideshow. Under the advanced parameters section of the module is a "browser sniffer". This functions allows you to only render the module to the screen if the viewer's browser (or device) matches that specified in your module. This means you can target something to appear on an iPad that won't appear on a desktop.
