WP-TTFGen

Description

TrueType Font Generator, or TTFGen, is a combination of PHP and jQuery which allows you to use custom fonts on your website which are guaranteed to be cross browser compatible and SEO Friendly.

TTFGen automatically generates static text images based on your own set of parameters. A small jQuery script is used to call the PHP image renderer, which uses the TTF file to generate the image.

TTFGen is SEO friendly because it uses jQuery to replace text within your website after the page loads.

Standalone

You do not need to use wordpress to use TTFGen. Visit www.ttfgen.com to download the standalone jQuery/PHP version.

Donations

We know that everyone’s time is valuable. If this plugin saves you endless amounts of time from manually creating images for your website, we hope that you will consider a small $2 donation.

Installation

  1. Upload the entire wp-ttfgen folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Modify the two lines in the ‘/wp-ttfgen/scripts/config.php’ file. Your correct full server path will be required for the script to operate properly.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Access TTFGen from the settings > TTFGen menu.
  5. Modify general settings as needed. If you are not sure about the jQuery settings, do not change them.
  6. Upload a TTF font via the ‘Add New Font’ section of the plugin.
  7. Set the CSS Font assignments to match your uploaded font. For example, assigning class ‘test’ to a specific font will cause the plugin to search your site for every instance of the CSS class ‘test’. It will replace the text within the class with the rendered image.
  8. Modify the class (or ID)’s CSS properties to assign fields such as color, size, etc.
  9. The plugin requires that the wp_footer() be loaded in your footer template.
