error with font loading -- HTTP 400 bad request error

Recommended Posts


Hi Cliff,


I'm not a developer, but my research shows that 400 errors are a temporary disconnect between the browser and the website or data source.  It could be as simple as a cache issue.  My recommendation is to clear any cache plugin, and if you don't have one, clear the browser's cache.  The request sent by your browser to the server is essentially malformed, which can result from an incomplete request, such as an interruption of some kind, ultimately resulting in the call upon the server being incomplete. Since the font is called from yet another server, it seems possible that the call could be coming from your server to Google's -- which indicates it may be cached, at least to me.


Worst case, it can't hurt to clear a cache.


See this for additional reference: http://www.checkupdown.com/status/E400.html


Let me know if this helps.

The font you selected is not on google webfonts.

Ok, so a 400 error is just from the way the font picker works, looking for the font on Google even if it's a font without the * G next to it in the font picker. Thanks.

      Hi guys!
      I'm using the following typography configuration in Pagelines Settings:
      <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans" rel="stylesheet">
      font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif;
      But Lato is still being loaded according to Google Page Speed. Do you know how I can prevent Lato from being loaded if I'm not using it?

      I use Adobe's Fonts.com for specific branded fonts for our site, and it's working nicely on Chrome and Firefox. However, the fonts all default in Safari. Is there anything I need to look at?

      I'm currently staging a site: http://www.staging1.w-edigest.org/?page_id=84&preview=true
      I couldn't get the fonts to 'take' on the Site Settings > Typography page and then found this message in the Google developer view: Font from origin 'http://www.w-edigest.org' has been blocked from loading by Cross-Origin Resource Sharing policy: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://www.staging1.w-edigest.org' is therefore not allowed access.
      How & where do I fix this? 
      Thank you!

      I have an icon font that I have purchased from Fontastic and I was wondering if I can install this in DMS? I am able to generate the icon font in Fontastic and can set character mapping. Each icon has it's own class (e.g. icon-edit-comment).
      Is there a tutorial that I can follow on how to do this? I tried the approach in adding a [CHILD THEME] folder with a fonts folder inside but I was unable to get anything to work.
      Any help / advice would be great.
