Hi EventEspresso,

Busy with designing some HTML-tickets for the ticketing plugin, I noticed that the version of DOMPDF used is quite outdated: 0.5.1, which is an early alpha of the 0.6.0 currently in bèta testing. This last version should support the use of fonts not available on the users computer, much like CSS3 allows webdesigners to do. Simply replacing the DOMPDF folder (0.5.1) by the newer version doesn’t work (not very suprisingly). I am not sure if you have already looked at updating this part of the EventEspresso plugin, but do you have any idea where the compatibility issue lies?

Curious to find out, and thanks for your support,

Bram Peerlings

Didn’t know they released an update. I will create a ticket to get this updated.

Can you tell me what errors you received when trying to merge the update?

Great! It simply throws a HTTP 500 error. I haven’t checked the code yet, but might have a closer look later today, to see what’s causing it.

I was a little quick. Apparently, there was another folder included in the installation path causing it to break down with the Internal Server Error.

Having removed this extra folder still gives some errors (currently “PHP-font-lib must either be installed via composer or copied to lib/php-font-lib”), but does not cause DOMpdf to completely break down. I’ll try to fix it, and share the solution when I’ve found it!

Hi Seth,

I got it to work, and my problems (separate fonts that would not load) are also solved. The download used is 0.6.0-beta3, which can be found at The dompdf-folder from that download can simply be replaced in the tpc-folder and seems to work great! The tutorial for including custom fonts that I have used is

Hopefully this can be included in a future version of EE.
