DarkMatter can use web fonts for any website. A web font is a font design specifically for use on websites and requires a font license.
A web font is a resource that is downloaded when a guest views your website, like an image the font must download. When your page has lots of fonts and images it can become slower to load the page. When using custom web fonts, we recommend not using more that three individual fonts to keep page load times fast.
An individual font would be the typeface name (Trade Gothic) and the weight (bold). If you wanted Trade Gothic Regular, that would be a seperate font. Web Fonts are also identified by a number designating their weight (normal, bold, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900).
A web safe font is a font that is pre-installed on many operating systems making it available across browsers.
Web safe fonts have varying formats: EOT (Embedded OpenType Fonts), WOFF (The Web Open Font Format), SVG (Fonts/Shapes), TTF (TrueType Fonts a font standard developed in the late 1980s, by Apple and Microsoft).
A fallback font is a font chosen to be the back-up if a display system or browser encounters an issue with the webfont. Fallback fonts will appear if your custom web font is not appearing.
To access the Custom Fonts go to the Main Menu and click on Custom Fonts.
Adding Web Fonts
You can add web fonts from a font house or upload your own. Some of the font houses we integrate with are: Google Font, Fonts.com, Adobe Typekit, Typography.com
Upload your own Font
Click on custom font. Give your new font a name and select a Fallback font. Then click CREATE WEB FONT.
Next, upload your web font files, Click SELECT OR UPLOAD FONT FILES. You will need to upload a set of files for your font that include: EOT, WOFF, SVG, TTF.
Click PREVIEW. You should see a display of your fonts, if you don’t read troubleshooting tips.
Then PUBLISH THE WEB FONT.
If the font doesn’t appear go into pages and click CLEAR PAGE CACHE. You may also need to reupload the font files again.
