This seems like a very well working plugin but it's not getting any support from the author anymore and does not work with any newer versions of WP.

Very useful web fonts plugin!
By , for WP 4.0.1

Thank you for publishing this. To get an Google API Key got a bit complicated, but that has nothing to do with this plugin. I like it that you have the choice of different sources. Typekit also has great fonts you can use and it's a lot easier/faster to get an API Key.

Sorry but this P-in not ready for Prime Time

Have several problems in the functionality of this new install. Almost no supporting docs to figure out the issues. Plus these support threads are all filled with similar problems and poor response history from the author. Duh..... I am moving on. Sure would be nice to have such functionality in WP but there are workarounds.

Lasted only minutes - why do I need a Google API?
By , for WP 3.9.1

I can use Google webfonts on any project I like without registering.
So why is this plugin insisting that I first get an API key from Google? This requires that I log into Google - from this moment on they log even more activity on my computer - which I don't want!

Yes, I have a Google webmaster account (which I rarely use), but neither a fixed IP, nor fixed address (as I'm a digital nomad) - Google only ever gets used with a login on IE, a browser I despise and never use for much else except maybe some testing. Development work and daily internet access happens through another browser, which I don't want to see registered with Google. Full Stop. If I can't do something simple w/o an API from Google then I'll find another tool - basta! This was gone in less than 5 minutes.

Works well

Allows more than just Google fonts which is great.

simple layout

works best for me. didn't like the interface of wp google fonts. I prefer adding the fonts in my css-file.

Exactly what I needed !!
By , for WP 3.5.1

After trying so many font plugins, This is the BEST plugin to use. It allows you to change the font directly in the post. Others are just too cumbersome...

If only one could change the font size. Instead of using the paragraph and heading options.

It Just Works!

Couldn't be simpler.

The only little itty bitty thing I'd say is that it would be nice if the fonts that are added would show up in alphabetical order in the Font Family dropdown.

Great timesaver
By , for WP 3.5

This is excellent and a huge timesaver. When you have a client or employer that think they know what they want for fonts, but really aren't sure, you can easily preview fonts in your theme or backend. Thank you,.

FontMeister plugin

The plugin is great. Easy to install and use. It's great that the drop down font selector shows the font style which helps me to choose. Only wish there was a way to add my own fonts.

Good job!
