• On preview and live my maintenance page is not showing the typeface I chose for the secondary text.

    It was working until I chose a cover background image. May be coincidence.

    I have switched to other typeface options and they too do not show.

    I am not using any custom HTML code, just basic options. The only things I changed from default install were:

    • color for header text
    • custom background color
    • customer background image (JPEG)
    • page title
    • header text
    • secondary text
    • font for header
    • font for secondary text

    The HTML code generated has the CSS with correct typefaces. The public.css looks like it is taking priority???

  • Hi,

    This is the first time I am receiving this error. The public.css is for the base classes. The generated CSS takes priority over it.

    That said, I will try to re-generate the issue you are talking about. I will keep you in sync with the progress on this issue.

    Thank you for pointing this out 🙂

    If you want to see it live. You can poke Firebug at it.

    It may be something else I didn’t spend a great deal of time on it. The fonts appeared to show correctly in preview until I chose custom background. Coincidence – maybe?


    Any progress on fixing this cosmetic issue?



    How did you go looking into secondary font issue? Appreciate an answer – even if it’s just ‘working on it’.

    Any progress? I know issue cosmetic but would love to see bug squashed

    Knock Knock,

    The cause of the font issue is no error handling for “non-google font” selections.

    You assume all fonts are to be loaded from Google and execute the code passing a non Google font in the array of fonts to fetch.

    A response code is returned from Google saying 403 forbidden.

    Source of error is code:

    <script src='//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/webfont/1.4.7/webfont.js'></script>
    	WebFont.load( {
    		google: {
    			families: ['Tahoma', 'Alef']
    	} );

    Suggest checking the font exists and is a Google font before fetching.

    Also suggest removing NON google fonts from the font pull-down menu IF you want to keep it simple.
