Strange typekit behavior on Windows browsers


(Stephen) #1

We use a Typekit font on our main site and I was attempting to replicate it on our Discourse install.

Using the adobe-supplied javascript and the below code to switch the font in:

body {
    font-family: "Adelle Sans";
}

On Chrome/Safari from my mac it works fine, but under Windows the font always falls back to the default serif font.

Any ideas why this might be? The same kit is fine on our main site and works on Mac/PC without issue.

We need more info. What browser did you test on Windows? Chrome/FF/IE? Have you checked the “network” console of your browser to see if the fonts were properly loading?

i have the same issue on my mac it’s all fine…i tested it on chrome/safari/firefox but in windows chrome/IE it’s not working properly

We don’t currently have a Dev instance of discourse to spend time testing this, so stripped type kit from our pages. It’s a shame, but just couldn’t be prioritised.

You can press f12 and see if there were any errors in the browser console. Likely bugs in the provided JavaScript from Adobe, particularly if it worked on Chrome and Safari on the Mac.
