Change the Cufon fonts to support additional characters

The Cufon font files have a set number of supported characters when they are generated. We included a limited number of supported characters to keep the file size small. To add further characters you will need to re-generate the Cufon font file from the base font file. We have included the base font files in the resources/fonts/ folder for this purpose. Go to http://cufon.shoqolate.com/generate/, at the Regular typeface upload field, choose your base font file from the resources/fonts/ folder. Fill out the rest of the form, for the Include the following glyphs (if available) setting, choose the extra characters you need. When we generated the fonts, the following options were ticked:

  • Uppercase
  • Lowercase
  • Numerals
  • Punctuation
  • WordPress punctuation
  • Basic Latin
  • Latin-1 Supplement

So tick any extra options and click Let’s do this!. Download the file once it’s been generated, and upload the file to your site in the folder wp-content/themes/storm/fonts/ and replace the original file.
