Este plugin permite agregar distintas fuentes a mi sitio de wordpress dando una apariencia agradable, es una solución simple para incorporar Google fonts a nuestros sitios webs.
Una vez que lo he configurado su funcionamiento es mucho más sencillo, pero es un poco dificil para ser configurado por el usuario promedio

Would be awesome, but could not get selectors to stick
By , for WP 3.5.1

Uses its own control panel area (I prefer if plugins only do this if they are quite important).

Requires API key for Google fonts. This is not hard to do. It's like… 3 steps.

Shows samples of all fonts, and you can search on the fonts, as well as sort alphabetically, or by popularity, etc.

This would be terrific, only I could not find how to get the selectors to work. In other words, for some reason, the data would not save to activate the selectors.

Also, I am not sure if it lets you see all the different font variants, which would be helpful.

No Support—Plugin is just advertising for fonts.com subscriptions
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin DOES NOT WORK right from the gate. There is no support. There is a post on support that has been UNANSWERED for 8 months. This is clearly a way for them to get you to subscribe to their subscription service—a dis-service to WP users. Why do I have to give one star?

Connection to server unreliable
By , for WP 3.5

The connection to the fonts.com server is unreliable with this plugin. So chances are, your site will have potential for some serious lag.

Was a favorite, but appears to be abandoned

Doesn't seem that the author is supporting this plugin any longer. I'd be delighted to change the rating if there is some response in the forum.

Doesn't work with fonts.com
By , for WP 3.5

I was very excited to discover this plugin, because I'm working on a small WordPress site for a friend and have been asked to use a single web font from fonts.com for all of the text.

However, after several days trying various approaches, I've given up on this plugin, because it just doesn't work.

It's much easier to simply use the fonts.com user interface and just paste a single line of JavaScript code into the header.php template of the child theme.

A pity, because this plugin would have saved me a lot of time if it had worked!
