Hi, sorry I’m not a developer so I’m muddling my way through. I installed Use Any Font, and used my chosen font in the page editor. All was well, it updated the page just fine. But when I navigate to my site as any other person would, the font is not the one I’ve implemented. Any advice appreciated (bare in mind I know nothing so be as obvious and brutal as you like)

Just to say I’ve been going through the known issues. I’ve definitely assigned the font (it’s showing in my admin preview). I have never heard of Cufon, which would suggest that I haven’t uploaded or used it, and if I have I’d have no idea how to take it away.
I don’t see the server connectivity test in the interface?
I’ve tried changing the additional settings to see if it makes a difference but no.April 7, 2015 at 12:16 pm #4143
Last update; I must be missing something simple because I’ve just noticed that the font is working on my contact page but not on my home page.April 7, 2015 at 1:42 pm #4144
Can you please send me your site url as well ?
ThanksApril 7, 2015 at 3:32 pm #4146
Thanks for getting back to me. It’s georgekarellas.comApril 8, 2015 at 3:49 am #4151
Did you recently change the server location ? If so, can you please deactivate and reactivate the plugin again ?
Also, you have kept 2 fonts with same name. Please delete it if it is duplicate. Or give another name. This might create conflict during font assign.

So sorry for the late reply, and thanks so much for looking into it for me. I haven’t changed domain, the 66.147…/georgeq2/ thing is the hosting allocation (hope that makes sense, and georgekarellas.com points to that. I don’t understand how I could get the font to load from georgekarellas.com as all the work I do is on 66.147…/georgeq2/ ?
I’ll delete the duplicate font. One point of note; the font loads perfectly from mobile 🙂
Sorry for taking up your time with my lack of knowledge and many thanks for your help!

Can you please keep this in your htaccess file and try ?
Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin “*”
ThanksApril 13, 2015 at 5:07 pm #4163
Please discard above code. Complete code is here.
<FilesMatch "\.(ttf|otf|eot|woff)$"> <IfModule mod_headers.c> Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*" </IfModule> </FilesMatch>April 15, 2015 at 1:00 pm #4171
I pasted that into my .htaccess and it didn’t work.April 15, 2015 at 4:27 pm #4176
In that case, can you please talk to your host and ask them to unblock woff, eot files for loading ?
ThanksApril 15, 2015 at 4:27 pm #4177
And also to allow cross domain origin.
ThanksApril 16, 2015 at 2:37 pm #4183
So the host tech told me that I had to make the relevant changes in the .htaccess file and that they don’t activate this kind of thing from their end. I told them you had made the same conclusion and that I’d put the relevant code into the htaccess and that it didn’t work.
They of course told me I needed to check the code. I’m sure it is my fault as I really know nothing about code. What I did was click the edit option on my htaccess file from my host control panel, I then pasted in the code you gave me on a new line (after the last line of previous code) and hit enter to get the cursor onto a new line. Then I saved the file.
Does that sound right to you?
Sorry for the trouble. If there’s nothing obvious wrong with what I’ve done then we’ll call it quits and I’ll just have to go without the custom font.
Thanks again for all your help

Really sorry to know about your issue. Any chance you can send me your copy of your htaccess file here ? I wanted to make sure that, you have placed the code in right place.
Or, you may also send me your wp-admin & FTP details at dnesscarkey (@@) gmail (dot) com. I will try fixing this from here.
Please don’t forget to include this thread url in email.
