Some fonts are missing from a webpage.

Posted

The fonts on wireclub.com aren't rendering correctly. Arial, Courier New, Georgia, Times New Roman, Trebuchet, Lucida Sans, and Comic Sans MS are meant to show on the page, but they're all showing with the same sans serif typeface, rather than the intended variety. If it isn't the same, it is close enough to the Lucida Sans one, but not close enough to the others. I had to add the missing fonts with the msttcorefonts package on my PC. What do I do to fix it here?

Hi

I must admit that I do not come across this kind of thing very often. Looking at other websites on my phone, I can see that Firefox for Android does display different typefaces, but not for this site.

I can only think that the designers of the site have specified that this typefaces should not be displayed in on a mobile device.

Question owner

The fonts didn't display correctly on my PC, running Linux, either, until I specifically installed the missing fonts. Unlike some pages do, on this page the fonts used do not automatically download to be displayed if missing, but need to be present already on the computer and won't show correctly if missing.

It doesn't display correctly, even if I choose the request desktop site option. It does not seem to be a bandwidth or processing power saving measure, or the like, as far as I can tell. I feel that if it were, that the mobile version would likely not show the option to choose your font, in the chat options, as it would be confusing to see no apparent change, but it does show that option.

Viewing the page source, I do see references to the typefaces that should be displaying, but are not showing. I expect if they were installed on my tablet, they'd show correctly, but I don't know how to do that.
