Dramatically slows down website
By , for WP 4.4.1

I installed this plugin on several pages. It dramatically slows down the website and causes downtimes on bigger websites due to too many requests. Smaller Websites might work well. Using caching-plugin doesn't make it better.

You should be aware of this plugin. It took me hours to find out which plugin has caused my problems.

Despite that it works great and does its work.

Glad it's back

Thankfully, this plugin has returned to the joy of designers who read. Typography is more than letters on a page, most websites look good, but don't read well. This is the fix. Aren't you glad you use wordpress.

Unfortunately there seems to be no further developing of this plugin. Well, wp-Typograhy is still vital for me, although I have detected some mistakes in the machine. But I don't know any better tool for help in typography!

Works but not neccesiary
By , for WP 4.1

This is an easy way for the average person to use a Web Font. Thats why I tried it. It works for that purpose but slowed down my site. Probably don't need to use this and if you want this functionality you are probably a professional who knows how to do this without this plugin.

Adds '-' between syllables when copy-pasting
By , for WP 4.0

It is only ony of two plugins for the purpose, and the other one is in js and also outdated. A pity, since not all themes support CSS hyphenation - but I will ask the developers of mine to include it.

Good but old
By , for WP 3.9.1

It's been a great plugin but it really is slowing down wordpress, too (checked with P3). Decide for yourself, but I deactivated it after quite some time of usage. The functionality is great!

Very useful

Very good job. Not complicated and very useful

Great plugin that just works
By , for WP 3.5.1

Wish it were built in to core.

Appears to install ok but....

Yes it installs on WordPress 3.5.1 but the claim to control hyphenation appears to be theme limited.

The default twenty-twelve theme automatically hyphenates and this plugin does not over-ride that control.

Finally, I am not going to use this plugin on a client site as it has advertising for another hosting company embedded in the admin page.

Excellent but need update
