kc cufon 1.4.0 was downloaded today.

I added the a to the filename to distinguish the conversion from ttf->js (no a appended) and from otf->js (a appended)

Überschrift 1 is equal to heading 1 and in the html there you can find the <h1> tag.

I will give a try and will come back within may 2 hrs.

Thanx

Hi,

What version of KC Cufon are you using?
Can you attach an image of your parameter settings please.

One thing that looks funny is the font.js filename. I have never seen the generator produce a filename with an a at the end of it before. Did you add that or did the generator produce that?

Try re-generating the font file and give it a simpler name such as GraphiteLightNarrow and GraphiteLight. Don't put anything in the domain list. Leave the other parameters as is and see if that makes any difference (note that you will need to change the plugin parameters to match the new font names).

I didn't see a h1 on the test page, just an h2.

On my testsite hdsgrueninger.bkleine-services.com I have installed Joomla 1.5.20 with KC Cufon. Using the standard fonts which came with the plugin everything looks fine.

I have included then two fonts from www.fonts101.com/search/graphite.aspx "Graphite Light Narrow Att" and "Graphite Light Att". These fonts I converted using cufon.shoqolate.com/generate/ and got two zip files which I unzipped. I then loaded the fonts into the plugin/systems/kc_cufon/fonts directory where I found the standard fonts, too.

In the Joomla backend I changed in the kc cufon plugin page the number of different fonts from 2 two 4, added the Graphite_Light_Narrow_ATT font with it's name to the first font entry and the Graphite_Light_ATT font two the second entry. Olde-English font is number 3 for CSS tag "a" and the Gabrielle font is number for "li".
This did not result in the display of these fonts, which are however loaded as judged by firebug.

I have definitely added the bkleine-services.com domain into the form.

I then converted the downloaded ttf fonts into OTF fonts. which displayed well. These two fonts were then used on cufon.shoqolate.com; the resulting fonts, however; did not work either.

If you want me to attach the font files, I can submit them here.

Graphite light Narrow should change the heading 1 display,
Graphite light should change the heading 2.
Firebug inspection reveals that the li-tag is changed into a cufon font, as well as the "a" tag, but h1 and h2 are not. strange enough. What did I miss?

Thanks for your help and greetings from the Black Forest!
