Support » Plugin: Google Webfonts For Woo Framework » Don't know where to insert API key

  • Resolved 87soccerb


    Hey, thanks for creating this plugin for woo themes. I’m using the Simplicity theme on the woo framework, and I’d love to activate this plugin.

    I signed up for the google web fonts API key through google and got the key, but now I don’t know where exactly I’m supposed to insert it in the settings for this plugin. Could you please clarify exactly where I’m supposed to insert the key in the settings code?

    I tried replacing every instance of google_api_key in the settings code with my actual key, but that didn’t work. I’m assuming that’s not correct.

    It is a settings page, so you will find it under the Settings menu on the administration dashboard. The page is called “Google Webfonts for Woo Framework”.

    Here is the URL for the page. Just put your own domain in:

    Paste the key into the “Google Developer API Key” field and then save the form. If the key is correct and enabled for webfonts, then you will see a new list of fonts on that page under the “New fonts available and used” section.

    TBH I have no idea why Google requires an API key to get this list. I can understand they may want to limit the usage of that API to keep the load on their servers down, but they could always provide a cached list of all fonts on another URL. I was thinking of doing that myself – putting a list of the fonts onto github or something, but don’t want to introduce a potential weak point in the process. However, maybe as a fall-back it could be useful.

    It’s a pleasure – do enjoy, and let me know how you get on.

    The plugin is only two weeks old, and I have a whole bunch of extensions I would like to add, but need to take it one step at a time (not break what is there, see how people use it and see what people would find useful next).
