I used different fonts then yolas. They look great on my Mac but the old fonts are still on my pc when I go to the website. Is there a delay in publishing it to the web? I didn't like yolas fonts so I copied and pasted text to yolas text widget. It seemed to work so what might be wrong?

Hello John,

The fonts in Yola are websafe fonts that should display correctly across all browsers. The problem with other fonts that you can import is that they sometimes display incorrectly on different browsers.

Would you be able to share your site URL with us so I can ask our coding team to see if they could possibly see what is wrong?

Many thanks for working with us on this.

Hello John

Unfortunately, when using custom fonts - they tend not to be browser friendly which explains why they may show up inconsistently in IE. Here's a list of Web friendly fonts.

The best way around this is to create a image with your desired text font.

I hope that helps!
