Google Fonts in WordPress

I’m feeling a bit over-excited at the moment because I can now add any Google font to any page or post on my blog.  I just checked and as I write this there are 629 web fonts available in the Google font library.

I have a small sub-set of those installed here on my blog and I’d like to show a selection of those to you here as I feel these are amongst the most useful when writing.

Please note that these are all TEXT and NOT GRAPHICS.

You can swipe across them and copy the content to test it out if you don’t believe me.  😉

Architects Daughter



Gloria Hallelujah

Henny Penny (Harry Potter I reckon)

Indie Flower



Love Ya Like A Sister

Permanent Marker

Rock Salt

Slackey  (this looks like the SpongeBob font)

Special Elite  (a typewriter style font – very nice)

I like to think you’d agree with me when I say this is pretty amazing.

Most important though is it’s incredibly easy to use and to add new fonts.

If you want to be able to do this too, then you need this:-

2 questions:
1) Does the google font ability work for adding inside say Ultimate TinyMCE ?

Dhich I and many use etc because is far better then standard TinyMCE that comes with WP!

Also once your plugin has ‘grabbed’ the google fonts it will appear you said in your personal list….So, does that mean even if say we use standard wordpress page for doing something next time and not make use of your plugin to do a sales page etc we could still see and use the google fonts pre loaded by your plugin anyway?

If so fab, a great way to install google fonts it sems then, whether we use your plugin at times or standard pages!

(posted the above question also on your warrior forum sales page for it about the plugin)
