Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus,  abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.

Good Morning,

Is it possible to use a Google font for the menu? I specify Default Font in AllWebMenus however it always seems to use the font specified in by body css style. I've tried various things to override this. If I specify a font that is not on my system in AllWebMenus, the menu does not show in preview nor on the website, e.g. 'Cantarell', Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif.

My question I think is, can I specify a css class that specifies the font and fonts size and weight to be used at run time.

Thanks
Robert

Dear Robert,

You are indeed able to use Google fonts with AllWebMenus. To do this you need to also set replacement fonts and choose something that has the same size, because the menu will most likely be displayed before the Google font is loaded, and it will not be able to change its size again after the font is loaded.

The only thing you need to be careful about, is that you should NOT use any quotes (single or otherwise) in the font list. Please try the following for example:

Cantarell, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif

If this does not work, please send me the URL so that I can check it.

Best Regards,

I'm trying to use a custom font for the navigation menu called "Neutraface Condensed Titling", which is what the logo in the top left of the page is done with. I read the two knowledgebase posts about custom fonts, but do not have the syntax correct to apparently get this font to load. Please check the URL, and see the reference to the font in the css file at:

/css/styles.css

Also, on my local PC they are viewable, but looked a bit bitmapped/jagged. Why does the font not look better? I'm feeling like I need to create images of these, so they look cleaner/clearer, but that should not be the case.

Thanks,
Alexi

Dear Alexi,

In order for your Custom Fonts to work, they must be available online so that they can be downloaded to any browser viewing your site.

This is done with Web-Fonts, such as Google Fonts. You cannot upload a custom font that you have in your PC (e.g. in Photoshop or Corel).

First of all because it is very tricky technically (and requires full access to the server) and secondly because their license would never allow this…

If you are using a Web Font, then make sure that it is properly included in your page (try it with a simple <div> that uses the font). If it works there it will also work in the menu without doing anything else.
