    Hello,
    I am trying to upload more fonts to fontmeister by using font squirrel type font kits and uploading what I have to
    /public_html/wp-content/uploads/fontmeister
    I even tried to edit the fontmeister.css by adding the @font code to this file. It seems that nothing is working.

    I took a look at your site, but I didn't see any place where you were applying the included fonts (Tangerine etc.).

    Exactly my point!
    Go under Service -> Wedding Packages
    The headings that are in red are suppose to be formatted

    I just added the Tangerine font now to my website. But as for the rest of the headings are formatted with calligrafftti Regular. I tried to add a new font called Lucida Calligraphy by uploading it manual but it did not register with your program.

    Your paths for the new font are probably wrong. Unless the .eot, .woff and other font files are directly in the fontmeister directory, the code you have in fontmeister.css will need some modifications (the directory name within fontmeister has to be specified).

    BTW, I still don't see any use of a Calligraffiti Regular in any CSS file on your site.

    Also I didn't follow what you meant by "uploading it manual but it did not register with your program". The only downloaded fonts that will show up in the font stack are fonts from Font Squirrel, not any others. Manually uploaded fonts are not in the scope of the current release.

    So, on my host server there is a path: wp-content -> uploads -> fontmeister correct?

    Whenever you download a font from your plugin such as Tangerine it goes to this folder. I made a font kit using Font Squirrel : http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface/generator and I uploaded it to this path way.

    I know that that you don't see Calligraffti Regular that is the point I am trying to make. Any new fonts that I upload with your program does not show up on my website. Do you think it could possibly be a theme issue?

    Nope. Not a theme issue.

    I know that that you don't see Calligraffti Regular that is the point I am trying to make.

    But my point is different. When you say "the rest of the headings are formatted with calligrafftti Regular", I take that to mean you are assigning the font to some header. So there should be a CSS declaration that says something like this:
    h1 { font-family: CalligraffittiRegular; }

    Anyway, go to FontMeister → Font Sources → Font Squirrel → Combine Font Squirrel CSS files, and set it to "Don't combine". I don't believe I am understanding the problem you are stating, but I think this step should help.

    It's working now! Thanks.
    What does the Don't combine setting do?

    And is there a way to add font type kits to fontmeister

    Again thanks a bunch!

    I've might have jumped the gun a little bit. Some fonts work and some of them don't. I think it just might be a Font Squirrel issue. Such as dancing script and CalligraffittiRegular.

    Some fonts work and some of them don't.

    You might want to check if the downloaded zip file was of 0 size. That tends to happen sometimes with some Font Squirrel fonts on some WP installations. You can download such fonts manually and unzip them in the same structure that exists for other fonts.

    And is there a way to add font type kits to fontmeister

    Easy, my friend! Give it some time :-). The plugin is the first to support Font Squirrel, and I do hope to be the first to support all font face kits, but I have been a bit preoccupied with my day job and other development projects.

    One more question.

    You might want to check if the downloaded zip file was of 0 size.

    What file will it be under in the download zip file?

    stylesheet- And this only contains @font-face css
    demo
    Text Document about the license
    TTF file
    SVG Document
    EOT File
    WOFF File

    Easy, my friend! Give it some time :-). The plugin is the first to support Font Squirrel, and I do hope to be the first to support all font face kits, but I have been a bit preoccupied with my day job and other development projects.

    Sounds good. :-) Maybe you should start a github page for this project. I wouldn't mind helping. Even though I'm a newbie when it comes to this stuff. I'm pretty sure other people who are more qualified than me are interested.
