HD-Gfonts Plugin

HD-Gfonts is a simple plugin that allows you to replace the standard fonts of your headings with a wider range of fonts from the Google Font Directory. There are currently over 250 fonts (including italic, bold and bold-italic varioations) to choose from, including: Cantarell, Cardo, Crimson Text, Cuprum, Droid Sans, Droid Sans Mono, Droid Serif, IM Fell Double Pica, Inconsolata, Josefin Sans Std Light, Lobster, Molengo, Neucha, Neuton, Nobile, OFL Sorts Mill Goudy, Old Standard TT, PT Sans, Philosopher, Reenie Beanie, Tangerine, Vollkorn and Yanone Kaffeesatz.

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.

Was looking for a way to extend the typefaces of an older template and tried this extension. I hit one snag with it and emailed the developer. Got a reply within hours and on a Friday afternoon/evening even! That's great service for paid extensions and outstanding for non-comm! Thanks Guys! Just what I needed!

This is only useful for americans(english), russians and greeks.
The Google Fonts Directory does not differentiate the fonts that are UTF. Those who would like to find unicode characters will waste precious hours of their lives with frustrating search before they realise it's in vain.

After a problem with installing the extension I contacted Richard at Hyde-Design, he replied within half an hour to fix it. Outstanding service, thank you Richard.
When the plugin was up and running it was very easy to choose the google fonts and also to style them as I wanted with drop shadows etc... This extension does exactly as promised.
