Currently, both the Google Web Fonts service and the Fonts.com service are integrated (over 16,800 free and commercial fonts).
If you like the extension, please write a review and help spread the word! The more support the project receives the more likely it will be developed further to include other services (Typekit, Myfonts, etc.)
The extension is language ready, but currently only has English translations. However the fonts available are for a wide variety of character sets (Khmer, Japanese, Arabic, Cyrillic, Greek, etc. etc.)
**Important: Both the component and plugin must be installed and enabled. The extension's interface on the admin side supports IE9 and IE8 and current versions of FF, Chrome, Safari, and Opera. The fonts are all managed through the component interface, however users must at least have a base understanding of CSS rules.
- Makes adding subsets of Web Fonts from Google very easy
- Fine control over which elements are affected by the Web Font
- Flags errors in http://validator.w3.org (mainly due to use of "&" instead of "&").
- When searching for fonts to import, the search doesn't always pick up the selection. For example, typing in "Source Sans Pro" returns no results, but if you browse through all the pages / view all (very slow to load), it appears.
Barring those two things... perfect extension. Any plans to be W3 compliant in the next version?
Thanks for your review. The current version is W3C compliant.
Thanks for pointing it out. :)
I knew from the video that I may have to wait a few minutes for the font to load, but I couldn't get the font to load on my front page for a while after I could see it in the backend. I am not sure if I may have cause this myself because I wanted to call font on demand using css wordage when I added the font I wanted to my template css and added a height parameter. Like I said I'm not sure if this helped, or if the font was loading for the front end.
It is pretty easy to use if you want to make changes to etc.
The font.com connection is awesome and they have a great selection of fonts.
I would suggest this extension to anyone that wants to change fonts on their site from noob-the experienced.
Installation and using is piece of cake thanks to youtube video.
Mr. Developer - You made my day. Thank you very much!!
Thank-you for your review! Thank-you also to the other folks here who took the time to submit a review. The more used and reviewed this extension is, the better its chances of being expanded to other services. - John
Thanks for your review, Markkus- I'm glad you like the extension! It does not allow for making font sizes changes and just focuses on making the fonts available for use and assigning them. The best way to do this would be through the template's stylesheet directly.
