Google Fonts

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

On all our recent templates we make extensive use of the Google Fonts API to load Google Fonts - what are Google Fonts?

Google Fonts is a completely free open source font directory that enables commercial and non-commercial use of all its fonts of which there are hundreds. The service evolved in response to demand for access to new fonts without having to use a commercial service.

A key fact to be aware of when using Google Fonts is that its loaded from an external source e.g. Google - so there may be a delay in the loading of the font on to your site (as with most things less is better).

I have just been searching the forum and the documentation for Zen Framework, but in the documentation under google fonts, it has coming soon :)

Also could find nothing in the forums exactly that says how they should be loaded into the template, am I missing the obvious here?

Cheers
Jeff

Hi Paul,

Just want to load other google fonts from google such as Oswald, using Xero but not sure how to go about it. I set the google fonts selection box, but what next?

Cheers
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

You would chose the font from

www.google.com/fonts

and add it to the input field

Are you looking to add any script types?

Cheers
Paul
