Before any changes please BACKUP your current template!!!

Leave that screen open for the 2nd step.

2. Go to :

Your_root_folder\templates\your_template\yjsgcore and open yjsg_googlefonts.php

and add a new case for it:

PHP Code:

    case #:
$gapi_font_family "Your font family";
$gapi_font_param ="Your font param";
*If your last case is 11 add a case 12.

To find your font family name and you font param go to the google page earlier open. And scroll down to this part :

The highlited part shows you your font family.

The highlited part shows you your font param.

3. Go to :

Hey, Skip2MyLove!

Great tuto, congratulations! I was wondering if there is any tutorial on how to add more fonts to CSS.

For instance, I am using YouPlus and the defaul font used in the demo is a GoogleFont family (Yanone Kaffeesatz). So, everytime I refresh the site, it connects to Google (to load the font I think). Is there any way to add this font to CSS so it will come from my server and not from Google? If so, please, how to?

Actually, I tried to do the same procedure for CSS as described for Google Fonts, it works, but the local font is a bit different from Google (it's a little bit larger) and it does not support characters like , , , , , , etc (while Google Fonts does).

UPDATE: I've managed to add new fonts that comes from my server, thanks to arefund that made this tutorial: http://www.youjoomla.com/joomla_supp...1-5-1-6-a.html

Thank you.
