Custom Font Imported as a static resource doesn't show up on Community. We have selected Custom Font under Themes in community builder. When I do preview custom font is not shown. We have followed all steps in the link mentioned below https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.communities_dev.meta/communities_dev/communities_dev_customize_font.htm The CSS is as follows

@font-face {
font-family: 'TomTomFonts';
src: url('/enterprise/s/sfsites/c/resource/TomTomFonts/Gotham font/Gotham-Bold.otf') format('otf');

  • i have tried to import static resource without space in folder name but doesnt work. i also tried creating a stylesheet.css file and added it to header markup in advanced settings of community. but nothing works at all. i tried changing resource path for font as well but no luck – ABHIJIT Apr 22 '19 at 10:48
  • @sfdcfox do u have any suggestions that i can try to implement? – ABHIJIT Apr 23 '19 at 4:02
  • @ABHIJIT Unfortunately, no. The documentation looks pretty straight forward, but I simply don't know enough off the top of my head to diagnose a problem like this. Have you checked the Developer Console in the browser (F12) to see if you get any network errors? I would guess that the URL may be incorrect or the file format is not supported, or that additional configuration is necessary. – sfdcfox Apr 23 '19 at 7:28
  • @sfdcfox I dont see any errors in console. I can see that font is getting overwritten in console logs. in console log there is a whitelisted array of fonts with different font types as elements of that array.In static resource for fonts we have only otf file and format of font is OTF. do we need any other format to make it work. can it be an issue with otf format? – ABHIJIT Apr 24 '19 at 4:58

Issue is resolved after using font format file of type woff. Looks like salesforce.com doesnt support otf font format

  • This worked for me after trying to reference a .ttf file half a dozen different ways. Converted the .ttf => .woff and presto. No mention in the docs abt font file type compat. Thanks Salesforce. – uncleoptimus Nov 15 '19 at 1:13
