    • re: Gantry template. There is no /fonts folder. Where does one put the .eot and .ttf files? where does one add code?

    • Sam,
      My take on this is that you install all the fonts in /templates/yourtemplate/fonts, even if the folder doesn't exist yet. Install the default weight/style names for each font,
      i.e.
      fontname.eot
      fontname-bold.eot
      fontname-italic.eot
      fontname-bolditalic.eot

      Even though you only list "fontname.eot" as the font name, I believe when you select bold/italic/etc., the renderer will look for the appropriate weight/style and use it, if installed.

      Until we hear from an "expert", that's the route I'm going today.

    • Hey Kat,
      Any updates to this inquiry?

      Kat, I think I have a similar question.
      I have a converted font that has regular, bold, italic and bold-italic; .eot and .ttf files.
      I would like to use the one family, but have access to the four alternate styles.

      Can you give me an example of how this would need to be incorporated in to Modulus on J!2.5 with Gantry 3.2.17?

      Thank you.

    • Can't you just use:

      font-family: yourcustomfont, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;

      ...Whenever you need to use that specific font?

    • Hey Prim,
      Thanks for the response, but I don't entirely know how @fontface fonts work in Joomla 2.5 or how they relate to use in the RT template.

      Many of us here just looking for a step-by-step walk-through that includes installing variations (bold, italic, etc.) for application to the template as well as the content (mainbody) areas.

      Fonts go in the /template/fonts folder, I know that.
      But do I need all of them, .ttf, .eot, .svg. .woff?
      Should I install the unedited .css file that came with the .fontface download package?
      If yes, does that get added to the template.css file under the /* fonts */ heading?

      So many questions, I know. How about a Gantry Font-Manager plug-in. (I'd pay for that.)
