Reviews

Highly recommend, improved pagespeed score significantly

This plugin does exactly as promised, in a simple user friendly way. All I had to do was download my fonts from google as instructed. Once download onto my computer I converted them using font squirrel as instructed, and downloaded the zip file. I went onto wordpress > settings > optimize webfonts. Hit the select font button, you will want to unzip the webfontkit and upload the generator_config.txt and select it. Then simple click add stylesheet. It should be noted that I am very new to website building, and I have zero programming knowledge but I could still use this plugin to significantly improve my pagespeed, and pingdom scores.

***I did have better luck uploading the generator_config.txt file on wordpress through Media > Add New. I kept receiving HTTP errors inside the wordpress uploader when trying to upload via the plugin.***
