    • I downloaded font "Motken Unicode Hor" as ttf file.
      using this generator http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface/generator I download a package and from it I upload files "motken_unicode_hor-webfont.eot", "motken_unicode_hor-webfont.ttf" to "templates/rt_crystalline_j15/fonts".
      And inside the package was a file stylesheet.css, inside it I found this:
      /* Generated by Font Squirrel (http://www.fontsquirrel.com) on February 15, 2011 */
       
       
       
      @font-face {
          font-family: 'MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode';
          src: url('motken_unicode_hor-webfont.eot?') format('eot'),
               url('motken_unicode_hor-webfont.woff') format('woff'),
               url('motken_unicode_hor-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),
               url('motken_unicode_hor-webfont.svg#webfontDiQYJZvi') format('svg');
          font-weight: normal;
          font-style: normal;
       
      }
       
       
      I add this code to template.css file:
         /* Adding Font MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode */
          @font-face {font-family: MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode;src: url(../fonts/motken_unicode_hor-webfont.eot);}
         @font-face {font-family: "MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode";src:local("MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode"), url(../fonts/motken_unicode_hor-webfont.ttf) format("truetype");}
       .font-family-MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode h1, .font-family-MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode h2.title, .font-family-MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode .rt-joomla .user legend, .font-family-MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode .rt-joomla .contact legend, .font-family-MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode .componentheading , .font-family-MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode .edit-article legend {font-family: MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;letter-spacing: normal;font-weight: normal;}
      And I add
      <option value="MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode">MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode</option>
      in templateDetails.xml file :
      <param name="font" type="chain" label="FONT_SETTINGS"  description="FONT_SETTINGS_DESC">
                      <param name="family" type="fonts" default="helvetica" label="FONT_FAMILY" description="" isbodyclass="true" setbyurl="true" setinsession="true" setbysession="true" setincookie="true" setbycookie="true">
                          <option value="MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode">MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode</option>
                          <option value="geneva">Geneva</option>
                          <option value="georgia">Georgia</option>
                          <option value="helvetica">Helvetica</option>
                          <option value="lucida">Lucida</option>
                          <option value="optima">Optima</option>
                          <option value="palatino">Palatino</option>
                          <option value="trebuchet">Trebuchet</option>
                      </param>
      Uploaded files "template.css", " templateDetails.xm".
      So every thing is done as described in this tutorial.
      But When I change the font to MotkenUnicodeHorMotkenUnicode in Settings>Font Settings>Font Family, the font doesn't really change in the front end, it still the same as before!

      Can you help me please :cry: ?

    • Hi,
      I am having some trouble loading fonts to the gantry template. I don't see a template.css or anything since I creating my own. Is there a specific place where I would add that. I want to add the Bebas font like you had using font squirrel. I'm not sure if it goes in the template.php file or somewhere else.

      Can you help please? thanks!

    • Did you check in /templates/rt_templatename_j15/css/template.css?
    • Please reply with a direct link to the issue & create a new thread for each new issue.

    • That's the thing I am not using a specific rockettheme template. I am just using the gantry framework and editing the css directly. Not sure if thats the right way to do it. But I have rt_granty_15 and inside ins a template.xml file and some php files.

      hi there,

      you are editing the css inside the gantry framework itself?
      bad idea, because you will loose ALL your changes when you update gantry.

      still not sure how you can use gantry without a gantry template?
