I'm trying to implement a block type where you can add for example an h1 with a class="sifr-replace" for example and it replaces with the embedded font of in this case the sifr plugin (embedded flash font).
But maybe when I add a H1 title I also want to choose between the 3 types of font embedding (Cufon / Facelift / sFLIR ).
Maybe then there will be no more need to use the WYSIWYG editor but just use block types for different types of typefaces... (head-title, subtitle, short-text ... etc..).
If someone already works on this maybe we can bundle or strengths.
I have it running on a site Im working on. I put the following code in the header.php file. You will also need to put the 2 .js files in your theme root directory (borders_360.font.js is the font Im using, create your font here:http://cufon.shoqolate.com/generate/... ). Then, if you add any text with the html code <h1>, it will display as your embedded cufon font.
I know that young finnish guy who created Cufon and if there's some questions about modifying Cufon, I can ask some "inside" tricks or tips from him. Just email me.
I know that he is very busy with the Cufon and other projects and I hope that questions are not "how do I install Cufon" etc. But if there is some larger projects, of course I'm trying to help. I own this for Concrete community and Concrete5. It's qreat CMS! :)
There's few small bugs in Cufon. It doesn't work in older Operas' and it's little bit of tricky copy text from website. There will be some improvements to copying text in this year.
With Sifr, it's not recommended to create navigations but with Cufon, go ahead! Cufon text can be also scalable, gradient colors etc.
In this website (www.dialogi.fi) we (actually that Cufon guy) made navigations with Cufon and also font scalability works nice.
Hope, that I can help somebody to create more beautiful websites with the Cufon. :)
