    Hello,
    I have installed the Stargazer theme and made a child theme in this temporary folder:
    http://www.eranoot.siach.net/

    For some reason, the Genericons font is not showing.

    Can you help figure it out?

    Thank you,
    Vera

    The Genericons are showing fine for me. Here' a screenshot:

    By the way, if you ever translate the theme into Hebrew, could you please share the translation files? We have very few Hebrew users at the moment, but I think providing the translation files would be very helpful for them and others.

    Thank you, Justin.
    That's funny/ Why don't I see them, then? I just see an outlined rectangle instead of an icon. Strange. Do you have an idea why?

    About the translation - no problem. I am not sure I am going to translate it, but if I do - I'll give you the files, sure.
    I have looked and it shows in the CodeStyling Localization plugin, but it sais there are some problems there, there are notes.
    Perhaps you can tell me: is there a better way to translate a theme? I have one at a school website, for a child, a theme which needs translation, and it doesn't show in the CodeStyling Localization plugin. I asked on the coders support forum, but they ignored the question for weeks now.

    I would really appreciate the pointer.

    Thanks again,
    Vera

    Justin,
    I have checked the website on 3 more different computers, and neither one shows the Genericons. Two show,asame as mine, an outline box. One even shows inside the box the value, in two tiers: "F431" for the menu down-arrow; "F400" for the search widget; "F100" for widgets...
    here is a screenshot:

    Can you help me fix it, please?

    Thank you,
    Vera

    Justin,
    I have discovered why the Genericons did not work:
    in the style.min.css file, in the code line:
    src:url(fonts/genericons/genericons-regular-webfont.eot?#iefix) format('embedded-opentype'),url(fonts/genericons/genericons-regular-webfont.woff) format('woff'),url(fonts/genericons/genericons-regular-webfont.ttf) format('truetype'),url(fonts/genericons/genericons-regular-webfont.svg#genericonsregular) format('svg');

    there was written:

    url(fonts/genericons/genericons- regular-webfont.ttf)

    with the large space, or tab, between the "genericons-" and the rest.

    When I have taken it out - it started showing all the icons as should be.

    Thought you might want to know. :)

    That space is not in my copy or the copy on WordPress.org. It must've been something specific with your site. Maybe you tried to edit the file with the WP theme editor? That's been known to add spaces where they don't belong.

    Justin,
    No, I did not. I have no idea why it was there, just glad I located it. :)

    Do you have perhaps an answer to my question about the translation, above?
    Thanks,
    Vera

    Use Poedit for translating:
    http://poedit.net/

    That's all you'll ever need.

    Oh, Jason, if I may, one request:
    could you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE not place all the CSS into one single line in file style.min.css? It makes adjusting the child-theme very difficult. Especially now that you have updated it...
    Thank you,
    Vera

    Justin, I have translated the theme to Hebrew.
    How can I send you the files?

    An beg pardon for getting your name wrong in the previous post. Not intentionally.
