Recommended Google fonts combinations

The Font Customizer plugin allows you to easily combine fonts on your website. It is important to choose the right Google typography pairings for headings and paragraphs in order to catch your reader's attention. Below, you'll find some well known examples of Google fonts that worked very well together.

Performance

The Font Customizer plugin has been developped with performance in mind. All stylesheets and scripts in front and back end are minified. The generated stylesheets with the custom fonts settings are written in head section the following way :

  1. The Google font families are requested very early in head to avoid any Flash of Unstyled Content (FOUC) in any browsers
  2. The plugin uses the best recommended practices to optimize Google fonts load time in your webpages (learn more about the Google Fonts API)
  3. The CSS properties are loaded after your main stylesheet

To improve php performances, all settings, once saved in the customizer, are stored as database options (cached by WordPress when get_option is called) into the database : default settings, custom settings, Google fonts.

Translations

The plugin is translation ready, the default .mo and .po files are inluded in /lang.
