OK plugin, but there is ABSOLUTELY no support. They have a video, but it is old, outdated and pretty much useless.
I have the plugin on one website and tried to put it on another, but the video to help you set it up it has never been updated and is now useless. I could not set it up the plugin on the new site.
I made a post on the support page months ago and it was never answered.
I've tried a wide variety of font plugins and this is by far the easiest & most reliable to use! A breath of fresh air in the font plugin world! :)
Look at how many support tickets there are for the API issue! As of today, September 19, 2015, it's every third or fourth ticket. I'm not gong to bother adding one more to the fire because I've already wasted enough time on this. Back to Simple Google Fonts I guess, which has issues of its own but at least I can use it. If you are the type of person who regularly runs into little problems during your development process, run away! Until they fix this issue, this plugin will make you want to bang your head against a wall.
great plugin I always turn to when needed to use another language (Khmer) for font selection.
I was looking for a plugin that allows to put google fonts to tinymce advanced editor and this one does that and so much more! Aside for a bit confusing API key creation (luckily instruction in FAQ helped, otherwise I would get lost), rest is intuitive and works very well. Finally I can change the text of the pages in the way I want without digging into code. Great plugin! Thanks :)!
What I mean is that I've put a lot of man-hours in the development of my site and I went through maybe 5 Google Web Font plugins searching for the best design. There is simply no comparison between Butler's plugin and the other offering out there.
It stands in a class by itself. The interface design is thoughtful and lends to a sense that the programmer spent considerable time thinking about how the end user was going to interact with the plugin. The degree of control over my fontography is a pleasure.
I had a problem with a few fonts not displaying and after Thomas found time to give me his attention in no time at all he had a solution. It was my SSL that was blocking the external call out to the Google API. In short order Thomas had a update prepared which we installed and activated. It immediately work and I'm back in the game again.
What more can I say, Thomas Butler has built a great plugin for free combined with superb client support. I was willing to pay for a plugin but this plugin is better than many of the one's have paid for.
Over the years, I've had the pleasure(?) of dueling with the wp editor for a number of things. So far this plugin has excelled beyond anything I've tried. Very well thought out, right down to including short video tutorials within the admin area.
Job well done, gentlemen!
ps - I especially like the way the sampler was introduced. Nice touch.
Nice interface and great font previews. Allows you to override your theme's default fonts with new ones from Google Fonts.
Some people have complained about the process of acquiring a Google API, but that's on Google and not the plugin creator. This plugin uses an existing service and does so in the most straightforward and simple way possible. This is the most functional and effective Google Fonts plugin I've found. It works with a wide variety of themes and setups with minimal issues. It does exact what it promises to do. I could not ask for more.
Works as advertised and has good documentation.
