Fonts not loading correctly

    Hello,

    When I go to ‘Appearance -> Themes -> Customize -> Typography -> General Font’ and select some font from the theme drop down menu it is not loaded on some PCs and/or mobile devices. I thought that these fonts that I can chose from are present in the theme itself so no additional work is required to load them correctly everywhere. The font that I have problems with is Futura and it is under Sans-Serif category.

    Could you please help me understand what the problem is and how to fix it? Is it possible to install the font locally on my site so that it loads correctly every time on every device?

    Thank you,
    Vasil Krastev

    The theme does not bundle any fonts. The ‘preferred’ group directs the browser to use fonts from the Google Fonts service (these work the same on all devices).

    All other fonts are system-dependent and the browser will use the set font name if it is available on the viewing device. Otherwise, similar looking (but not identical) fallback fonts are used instead.

    Hello,

    Thank you very much for your fast response.
    Do you have any how-to or tutorial on how to embed the font (assuming I have the .ttf files) into your theme which I can read and implement in my child theme?

    Thank you,

    You’ll need to prepare your font files for the web (using a service like FontSquirrel) and then load those files on the site using a plugin.

    See the theme documentation on how to apply a custom font to the theme’s elements.
