Google Fonts


Recommended Posts

I've been pulling my hair out for 2 hours now and need some help before I go bald.

I have been able to get the Google Font 'Open Sans' working with a local version of my cubecart site (i.e. copying and pasting the html into a file and viewing it on my PC rather than live), but I cannot see that font on the live site.

I have added

<link href="http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:400,300,600,300italic,400italic,600italic,700,700italic,800,800italic" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

to the main template on my skin.

I've also change all font references in the common.css file to

font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif, Arial, Helvetica;

Why will it work as a 'non-live file', but not when it's on the website?

Note: I've changed the ' to " and added the /> at the end of the line rather than > as provided by Google to see if that would work, but neither the code from Google or my changes have made any difference.).
