Recommended Posts

My fonts in Google Chrome (rel 37) give me the following problem (see photo)

Any advice on how to fix would be appreciated

I am on a Mac: using Chrome (rel 37) and Suitcase 5

Thanks

Hi,

 

I am not sure what you're referring to, is the font used in the image above a custom font you have added or one of the default fonts used in DMS ?

If you look below the text "Hello World" you will see the characters that look like "symbols" - these should look like normal characters (like A, B, C...)

 

I am guessing that this is a Web Font issue. I only get this font problem in Chrome. PL DMS renders find in Safari and Firefox.

 

So, maybe is a Google Web Font issue. And I have seen a lot of Google Forum discussions about Font Rendering problems.

 

Is there an Extension for Chrome that PL Developers use? If so, what is it. That may solve my issue.

 

Thanks!

We need to know what font you're using, is this a custom font you have added yourself or one you have selected through the options in DMS via the Typography options panel ?

 

Also, can you provide a link to the site in question please, so we can see it first hand.

Thanks for your fast reply!

 

I am not using custom fonts - and I have not made any changes in the DMS Typography (not sure that is found actually :)

 

As soon as I installed DMS on the site, I got the font problem as shown above in the Jpeg in my initial post.

I am not having any font rendering issue when I view your site in Chrome - https://cloudup.com/c4IjAsRCB-F

 

Do you have any extensions installed ? If so, please disable them and see if this resolves the issue. Also, disable the cache plugin you have installed, as we do not provide support to users who have these plugins active.

I recommend you follow the instructions of the cache plugins and only use them when your site has been finalised. Otherwise, you will encounter issues.

I restarted Chrome with Extensions off and I get the font problem on my other PL site as well (ajgo.org)

 

So I believe that this is more of a Chrome Issue - and I will pursue this with Google.

 

DO YOU use any Font Extensions in Chrome? If so, which one(s)

 

Thanks for you help - we can consider this topic closed SUCCESSFULLY

As far as I can tell your issue is caused by having the cache plugin installed. You also have an error which you can see in your site header here - https://cloudup.com/cqBRwr_B407

 

For some reason this appears to be coming from your script link for your font - https://cloudup.com/cYvzzFMzPJq

 

I recommend you disable all active plugins and see if this resolves the '> from your header, if it does then it is likely going to resolve your issue. As far a I can tell this is related to the cache plugin and that is also why you're unable to see your fonts correctly, yet I am. Please do not use cache plugins, unless your sites receive high traffic and make sure they're configured correctly.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
