Thank you for your feedback.
I had already entered the idea on the idea board before the post here. So far the entry was neither confirmed nor rejected.
The subject is: Importer for CSS fontsets.
The content as in my initial post.
Yes, I know about the possibilities to create the fonts in the backend. Also the later clarity to find the local fonts better, is by far better than with oxygen.
Currently you have to create each font separately, so the woff, woff2 and the ttf.
For this you have to select a font-weight 3 times in the media-manager. That’s 18 clicks. For the 3 font files
Add font → Upload → Select font file → Upload fonts → Select font in MediaGallery → Confirm selection.
Without question this is fast with a Schrfit. Let’s calculate further:
2 fonts, one with 3 font-weight (light,normal,bold) and one with 6 variants (light,normal,bold, light-italic,normal-italic,bold-italic).
That’s 9 variations with 3 font files each (woff, woff2, ttf).
27 x 6 clicks = 162 clicks to load the fonts.
If you create a font package with the google webfonts helper, you can select all font weights and the tool creates the finished CSS file. You get everything in a zip file for download. With 5 different fontsweights this is not 10 clicks incl upload. If you do that in the current Bricks version you need 90 clicks for the same result.
Furthermore you can use such a font package multiple times for different WP installations.
Changes can also be made quickly using an editor (e.g. Visual Code).
If you rarely make a WP installation, the current options are perfectly sufficient. If you do something like this more often, you want something more comfortable. You can create a template and do the whole thing in a few seconds.
To your 2 question: There is no problem for the upod folder as a storage location.
