    As I mentionned it on the author website, since the chaotics updates occured this summer, Anyfont looks like being working BUT there's still a big issue for code validity AND accessibility.

    • All titles for Sidebar when replaced by the needed image have a blank title and alt.

    Too bad

    asaik this is maybe handle at line 857 of anyfont.php in function anyfont_img_output() and / or at line 937 for function anyfont_get_menu_images.
    Looks like the $title are actually not corrrect when it's sidebar items, but I'm not a php guru.

    Unfortunatly the author is still mute about this....

    Hi,

    Sorry about the lack of response from my side, as you said yourself, things have been quite chaotic, I don't have much spare time in between working on AnyFont and clients, but I do read everything that is posted and will try and respond at some point.

    Regarding the sidebar images, the reason they don't have alt or title tags is a limitation of the way WordPress core handles widget titles. It is also mentioned on the settings page in AnyFont that widget image replacements are not SEO friendly.

    If you want SEO friendly widget titles with custom fonts, I suggest you use the CSS3 styles available in AnyFont.

    hmm.

    Thank you

    I'm still trying to understand what you call css3 styles. I mean I dont see how to manage this with your plugin.

    (of course real css3 style sheet is always an option)

    If you look on the AnyFont settings page, there is a tab called "FontServ Settings" where you can enter your API key after signing up at FontServ.com.

    Once you have entered your API key you can then convert your fonts to webfont compatible formats via the Font management page in AnyFont. Then once you have converted some fonts, you can create styles much in the same way as the image styles from the CSS3 tab on the style management page.

    You can then assign those styles to be applied to your blog on the Settings page just like you assign image replacement styles.

    Hope that helps.

    oh yes.

    But it's third party dependent (and no free afaik). Not my stuff, sorry.
