In my GT Metrix Pagespeed report, I get this result:
Specify a cache validator
What’s this mean?
The following resources are missing a cache validator. Resources that do not specify a cache validator cannot be refreshed efficiently. Specify a Last-Modified or ETag header to enable cache validation for the following resources:
Is there anyway I can resolve this or is there a preferred method to resolve that you recommend for Fluida theme?

GTMetrix also provide additional information together with their diagnostics:
Caching is normally handled by a plugin (or directly at the server/hosting level).March 15th, 2019 at 20:44 #75651
So are you telling me to just keep on reading? lol!
I will but since these are exclusively related to Fluida theme, (seriousslider.ttf, blocks.woff, elusive.woff, I thought it may be theme related and you may have some input from previous questions or concerns.March 16th, 2019 at 02:53 #75659
sorry, maybe I should be more direct: These are directly related to this theme and I do not have this issue with other themes. How do I fix?July 20th, 2019 at 08:01 #84618
I have not heard any response – any forthcoming?

Regardless of where files come from (theme, plugin or WordPress itself), they all get served to clients by the webserver software – hence any caching rules need to be set up and configured at the webserver level.July 23rd, 2019 at 23:07 #84713
Thank you for responding!
I realize these are served to clients via webserver. But these issues are theme related. Other themes – not made by Cryout Creations – do not have these issues. I would think, or hope, you test your themes and have an idea of how they react to Apache or NGINX servers in relation to SEO issues, especially speed.
I also know this probably can fixed with a simple addition to the htaccess file. I’m no expert, and I did try multiple solutions but none worked so then I was thinking you may know the fix since they are in your themes, Plus themes included.
I’m sure other people are running into this as well.

You can expand the cache-controlling rewrite rules to cover font files too:
