New in Themify Framework 1.3.4: Google Web Fonts selection

Themify themes have long used Google Web Fonts, since it's the most widely used and reliable open font service. We're now taking a big step further by giving users the chance to select any font from the wide selection Google has to offer, directly from the Styling panel in the theme settings area.

Selecting Google Web Fonts in Themify Styling panel

After upgrading to Themify Framework 1.3.4, you'll be able to select Google Web Fonts for any typographic area in the theme, from the body text font, to headings, form elements, navigations and so on. As shown in the image, the web safe fonts are still available for you to choose.

Just remember that each Google Web Font you select adds a slight footprint to your site loading, so while you have the entire Google fonts repertory at your fingertips, you should wisely use only those that you really need to keep the good performance of your site.

    Add please russian google fonts support to your framework.
    Just add cyrillic/latin/ support.
    In my case i must get and put google font code in css manually… it is not comfortable for me…

    Thank you!

    Super cool feature. Unfortunately for me I’ve just see this! :)) Hope you will include some Romanian fonts too. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for setting this up guys. Just wanted to double check: if I use the same Google font for everything will that make my site load slower than if I use that Google font for Headings only? Cheers.

      The fonts can be used for everything (eg. body text) or headings only. More fonts you use/select = more loading time. So it is recommended to stick with 2 – 3 fonts.

    We are having issues with the Google fonts. Utilizing them presents a default font during load and then changes to our selected google font a short time later. This is visually very disturbing and hoping we are missing something on this feature to ensure it won’t happen.
