Cufon Font replacement


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi

I have followed the instructions to upload a font to my site. The cufon site generated the file, but then the instructions are to upload it to the theme folder. Its not working so i am guessing I have placed it in the wrong place. Could you give more exact instruction about where the file should be placed.

Cheers Lesley

Hi,

I am not sure where the I find 'the proper code provided by Cufon' If you have any more advice I would apreciate this, but if not, I think I will 'write off' this idea for now and try again another time. I have plenty of other things to get on with! I would like to acheive this because it will make my site look more professional but its not vital.

Cheers

Lesley

Hi Lesley,

All you need to do is go to the Cufon website, generate your font and then download the font file. Then upload it to your website and add the URL to the font file, in PageLines > Site Options > Typography > Cufon: Replacement Font File URL.

Also be sure to enable Cufon, this setting can be found above the Cufon: Replacement Font File URL option.

You may FTP the font file up to your site via your FTP client (Filezilla or a built in file manager in your hosting package will do). Make a note of the URL where you place the font. Such as


http://www.yourdomain/fonts/myfontname.ttf

The font can be outside the WP installation. As long as you have the full URL, you can apply the proper code provided by Cufon to Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code > Header Scripts. Save your settings.

The font will replace whatever tag it's set to. The default I believe is <h1>.
