    I’ve noticed font-awesome is built in. But if I deactivate my easy google font plugin, all my nice font styling disappears.

    Hi Alice. Are you saying that if you disable the plugin that the Font Awesome icons no longer appear?

    No BDBrown, just choice of fonts for p, h1 to h6.

    Does this mean you used Google fonts provided by the plugin in your posts/pages and now that the plugin is disabled the posts/pages are no longer formatted with that font?

    I installed ‘easy google fonts’ plugin on my last theme, carried over to GP. And yes, if I disable plugin my styled fonts revert to basic font families, ie no longer formatted.

    So you installed the plugin on a previous theme, selected a font and styled your text, and now you’ve disabled the plugin and your text is no longer using the font you selected from the plugin?

    I’ll rephrase my question….

    because GP comes with Font Awesome, does that mean fonts I’ve selected through the customiser tool on GP can function/appear independently of my Easy Google Font plugin. Is there a way to ditch this plugin and still have my non-standard google fonts?

    (i.e I had plugins from last theme, but selected fonts when GP was installed via the customiser tool. I’d like to minimise all plugins if possible, to reduce weight of website). I hope this is clearer! 🙂

    Yes. I did a bit of testing and it appears that if the the Google Font plugin is active it adds its own Typography option in the Customizer. Any selection there will override selections in the default theme Typography option. If you deactivate the plugin the theme will revert to whatever is selected in the default Typography option.

    Does that help?

    hi, 🙂

    a question to the google fonts in the tiny mc editor: if i want to change the font of some words in a posting, in “fontname” i find only the default fonts, not the google fonts.

    is there any possibility, to ad the google gonts to the tiny mc editor?

    best regards
