Preguntas frecuentes

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 h1 and h2 to 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.

For a long time I wondered which plugin was consuming too much RAM on my WP installation. Through the Code Profiler I found out that THIS plugin is responsible for it. After disabling it, I suddenly had 40-50 MB more space in RAM. This is unacceptable, unfortunately! Too bad, this PlugIn is otherwise really good and does a great job. I have now solved the hyphenation by CSS and deleted this PlugIn.

This has saved us a ton of trouble on our Swedish-language website. It's simply amazing, and works great!

I contacted the support because the hyphenations did not appear on pop-ups. They replied soon and provided me with some small PHP code to fix this.
