Now with custom fonts support (Cufón) the True Typography is the one and only Joomla! CMS plug-in that indeed improves the quality of texts formatting providing automatic typography functionality. True Typography is a step to rebirth of good old typography traditions that always existed in printing but are undeservedly neglected on the web.

What does it actually do? True Typography isn't focused on inserting some weird fonts nor it is limited to the "smart quotes" thing and other simple tricks. It’s a full-featured automatic typography script that includes the following:

o Custom fonts (Cufón) with easy and clear man­age­ment (more than 30 pre-​installed fonts)
o Auto­mated hyphen­a­tion*
o Smart repla­cing of text char­ac­ters with their respect­ive HTML entit­ies: quotes* (“text sample”, „text­beis­piel”, «пример текста»), dashes (-, –, —), ellipses (…), copy­right © and trade­mark ™ sym­bols, and many others
o Hand­ling of suf­fixes, frac­tions and math expres­sions (51÷3×25=425)
o Dia­crit­ics for Eng­lish words (“ångström”)
o CSS styles for lead­ing quotes, acronyms, num­bers, guillemets
o Spa­cing con­trol: glu­ing val­ues to their units, widow pro­tec­tion, forced wrap­ping of too long URLs and email addresses
o Addi­tional options (dis­abled by default):
– Open­ing all external links in new win­dows (without using the “tar­get” tag that is not XHTML valid)
– Repla­cing cus­tom pat­terns (only text con­tent is parsed, tags are left untouched).

  • Mul­tiple lan­guages are respected

And remember that details make things perfect! ;o)

Ok, I must admit - I went crazy with the possibilities of changing fonts in every div class I could think of ;-) but it is soooo easy to use and so quick to add your own stuff, how could I resist?! Anyway, after fiddling with it I had to slow down to keep the "frame" of the site and not overload it :-P Awesome job, guys! Thanks, you made my day

Font Size

Posted on 12 May 2014

Nice fonts, although Cufon is slightly outdated, but I am disappointed that the template cannot be edited and there is no way to change the font size, which is annoying. You can't complain much when things are free, but at least the basics should have been offered like the chance to edit the template to fit the website requirement.

Owner's reply: Your conclusions are not correct. Sizes of the fonts can be edited and that should be done using CSS regardless of whether you're using Cufon or not. Apparently the plugin itself cannot provide any options for changing the font sizes because it's not its purpose and it's not some framework for managing themes.

Superb! Thank You!

Thanks to the makers of this extension. Outstanding support as well (even over the holidays!). My client wanted a specific font that was not included in the extension (there is a wide variety there already to pick from). I had to learn how to change tff to the file needed. You need to learn a bit to configure the extension but who does not like a few puzzles? If you can read and follow instructions, there is nothing to worry about. Great extension. Highly recommended. Again, thank you very much! Hope you go from strength to strength

Great Results

Great plugin. It sometimes adds spaces where they don't belong, but that's minor.

Works perfect it gives your site a more personal look for sure!

Font embedding is easyas well.

Great Plugin!!

I use wp-Typography from KINGdesk in all my german WordPress websites. I have enough options to manage a very good german web-typography. An excellent solution.

This plugin for Joomla is also based on the solution from KINGdesk, but the options are not sophisticated enough for a very good german typography, because you can’t turn off some automatics, which are wrong for german: hyphen, en-dash and em-dash should not be changed automatically.

So for my websites for printing-houses I must turn off the whole plugin: So they have to hyphenate the text manually – and german has many long words…
