Getting Started with FontPage

Wyatt Arent

FontPage is an add-on feature for FontPeek which allows you to host your previews on your own website. This feature is particularly useful for businesses which don't have their own website (e.g. Etsy businesses), or if your website code cannot be edited to add FontPeek previews.

Creating a FontPage

To use FontPage, you first must make sure you have the add-on in your subscriptions.

Next, you will need to create a font preview. This is what gets hosted in your FontPage.

Once you have a preview ready, go to your previews and click "Enable FontPage".

It will ask you to set your "FontPage Domain" if you haven't already done so. This is also known as your "slug" or your "FontPage Domain". It will become the website that you host all of your FontPages on.

You can change this later under your Settings -> FontPage Domain, but you can only use something that isn't already being used by another organization. Note that the default value before you set anything might look like a random jumble of letters and numbers, this is normal and you can change it.

Next, it will ask you for "FontPage Name", which is the page on your website that hosts your preview.

For example, if the domain is "alyssas-favorite-fonts" and the name is "top-fonts-2021" then the final website you get is: (this is an example link. In reality it does not exist)

Once you click "Create" it will briefly process your request before showing the success message. Click "Dismiss" and it should automatically pop open a new window with your new FontPage. Alternatively, in your Previews you can now click "Open FontPage" to visit the FontPage link.

That's it! You have successfully created a FontPage. At any time, you can also go back to your preview and edit it to add or remove fonts, which will also update the FontPage automatically. There is no limit to the number of FontPages you can create.
