Found the font you absolutely must have at Google Fonts but it’s not in WOO Canvas?

Google Fonts at this writing has 629 fonts to choose from. I don’t know exactly how WOO Framework does it, but they don’t have all of them and it doesn’t seem like they automatically add them. In fact, I was just looking for some answers to this topic in the WOO forums and it looks like they have to add them manually. Bummer.

Want to just add one or two new fonts?

If you just need one or two fonts that Google has but WOO Canvas doesn’t, there’s a bit of code you can add to get them in there. Here’s the code you need. You’ll want to add it to your functions.php file.

// add the function to the init hook
add_action( 'init', 'woo_add_googlefonts', 20 );

// add a font to the $google_fonts variable
function woo_add_googlefonts () {
    global $google_fonts;
    $google_fonts[] = array( 'name' => 'Lustria', 'variant' => ':r,b,i,bi');
    //$google_fonts[] = array( 'name' => 'Font Name', 'variant' => ':r,b,i,bi');

Looking to add all of them and have them (more) automatically available?

Jason Judge created a plugin for this exact purpose–guess he wasn’t the only one who wanted access to all of the Google Fonts available. Check out Google Webfonts For Woo Framework. He says you don’t necessarily have to do the Google API thing because when he periodically updates the plugin he’ll also update the fonts. Thanks Jason!

Need even more Google fonts? No worries.
