I just tried v1.1.4 on WP4.5.3, and had just one problem getting it to work, but after that, it worked fine.
One thing that I think he skips in the setup instructions (maybe I missed it) is that before you generate a Google API Key, you have to enable Google Fonts access under your developer account. After that, when you ask to generate a new API Key (and choose Server Key when you do), it will generate an API Key that includes rights to Google Fonts.
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! :)
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.
I had a lot of fun building this plugin. I hope you like it and get some great use out of it to. Feedback is more than welcome.
