Native Support for Google Fonts

(8 posts) (8 voices)

  1. I would like to suggest including Google Fonts directly into your theme in addition to Cufon so that in the skinner Font options we can choose from Google Fonts if we want. Even better would be an option for us to choose which Google Fonts appear in the drop down list. And, of course, the ability to preview how they look would also be nice :).

    Either way, I prefer Google Fonts to Cufon and would like to have easier integration if possible.

    Thanks and be well,

    Any thoughts on this? It can be implemented through a plugin so it can't be impossible to do. It would be a great selling feature of the themes because Google Fonts have a lot of credibility.

    Although, to be fair, you've made it pretty easy to implement as it is:

    I second that. The inclusion of Cufon fonts is bloat in my eyes, and unnecessary. Furthermore, if one uses ie Google fonts, one has to use Custom CSS to activate them. That cannot be done through the Skin Manager.

    Google fonts are easy to integrate if all you want are the header tags, but it would be nice if they were in the picker instead.

    I have implemented google fonts in custom CSS, no problems there.

    But why not have it already as an option in the theme? Might help will sales! (just saying...)

  6. font-face is MUCH better than google webfonts. I like Google Webfonts for certain things, but you can't choose or upload a custom font. that's why Cufon is so awesome.

    Cufon is horrible.

    +1 on Google Fonts integration, please. Cufon is annoying to users and make everything harder to work with.
