FAQs are maintained on the wp-Typography website.
Three questions come up so frequently, we will republish their answers here:
Will this plugin slow my page loading times?
Maybe. For best performance, use a persistent object cache plugin like WP Redis.
This plugin breaks post title links. What gives?
More likely than not, your WordPress theme is using an improper function to set the title attribute of your heading’s link. It is probably using the
the_title()function, which delivers the post title after filtering. It should be using
the_title_attribute()which delivers the post title before filtering. Change out this function throughout your theme when it is used inside of an HTML tag, and the problem should go away.
If you are uncomfortable editing your theme’s code, you may alternatively go to the wp-Typography settings page in your admin panel and add
h2to the “Do not process the content of these HTML elements:” field. This will disable typographic processing within improperly designed page title links and page titles.
What are the privacy implications of using the plugin?
wp-Typography does not store, transmit or otherwise process personal data as such. It does cache the content of the site’s posts. If necessary, you can clear this cache from the plugin’s settings page.
Remember, many more FAQs are are addressed the wp-Typography website.
