KC Cufón Font Replacement Plugin

Cufón is a JavaScript based font replacement technique so you can use non-web based fonts on your website. This plugin integrates Cufón fonts in your Joomla 1.5 or 1.6-1.7-2.5-3.x website.

The plugin allows you to add up to 6 different fonts/CSS selector sets to your site and any number of different CSS selectors for each font.

Use normal CSS to change the attributes of your Cufón font selectors.

Cufón is faster than sIFR and FLIR, two other font replacement techniques.

Detailed information about Cufón can be found on the Cufón website: http://www.keashly.net/typography/kc-cufon-font-replacement

I've used sIFR and flash-based font replacement before with many headaches. This is so much nicer! They all require some leg work to set up correctly, but this one was the easiest. With proper use, it can really set a site apart from the rest.

Brilliant way of getting cufon on your joomla site!

Only criticism would be how to add componentheading and contentheading rather than just h1,h2,h3 etc
Owner's reply

Hello,

You can add h1,.componentheading or .contentheading for example, as the CSS Selector. You can add any CSS definition in the CSS Selector field like: #header a.slogan as another example.
