I'm having an issue rendering a font within the CMS. I have just copied css files from my non secure to my secure side and the only issue I'm having is I cannot get one of my fonts to displaying text correctly in the CMS. It publishes out correctly. Everything else that is in that same css is working fine in both the CMS and live, its just that one font. I have verified the font's location in the secure side and the path I have is correct. I have my css file linked to an include.

    Sounds as though your browser may be blocking the font from loading. Generally, this occurs when the page requesting the file is secure, but the file itself is not.

    Is this font coming from an external source by chance? If so, check the URL to see if it starts with http://. If it does, change it to // to make it scheme-relative so the font can be loaded over SSL as well.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks I figured out my issue. I didn't have the fonts folder in the secure side in the cms. It was just on the server. Thanks for your assistance.
