I'm using the Advanced BBcode Box 3 extension. Don't know how to implement that.thecoalman wrote: ↑Thu Jul 11, 2019 11:40 amOn Windows machine the font would need to be installed to be available for all applications, some applications may have their own library of fonts that are not installed and only available to that application.
If this is for web page this is special case because you provide a URL in the CSS to the file for download so a browser/machine that does not have the font can display it. The file can be served from your site or linked to external site like Google which has font service.
Googles service give you option to download or link directly to their files. Do a search for CSS web fonts.

To me it looks like you probably just used
[font=cursive][/font]in the message, and ABBC3's action in that case is to simply reflect "whatever you specified" as a font-family property in a style directly applied to a span, e.g.
[font=Satisfy][/font]in ABBC3, so that CSS ends up with "font-family:Satisfy".
I'd consider hosting that resource myself so users of my board wouldn't be exposed to Google tracking referers.
Fair enough, and understood. It's just not very "web-savvy" of you when you achieve such high technical marks in so many other areas.
<head>section, same as if you were trying to include any other new style sheet:
Code: Select all
<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Satisfy&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">
And you got the answer there.
The bottom line is, as you have been told, either you have to add the font to your board or the user has to have it installed and the only way that you can guarantee that is to install it on your board.
Then I suggest that you post your request in the "Wanted" forum.
fallbackfont which any user should have already installed in their PCs.
