I'm trying to upload a non-copywrited font to Yola Header on my page. My friend can do this easily with the same font on Yola but I cannot. It states font has uploaded and all okay, but after selecting save, it stays on the old font? Please help..

Hi Dan,

From your post I gather you are able to upload the file and then see the text in the drop down menu in the Sitebuilder is this correct? Does the font appear when you select it and then simply isn't retained after saving?

Have you talked through the steps with your friend to see any differences in the process?

There's no option in the drop down menu after I upload it, but it has definitely uploaded and definitely the right format (TTF).. I read about similar problems on here? Can anybody help?

Hi Dan,

My only other thought would be if it was a style specific error. Can you try following the same steps with the same style your friend has and see if it works then?

Hello Dan,

I'm wondering if I have understood you correctly?

Did you upload the Font onto your computer or into the File manager of your site?
A Font on your computer won't show up in your sitebuilder.
If you have uploaded a font to your file manager of a site then it won't appear on your drop down list of fonts. It isn't accessed this way. Only the Yola supplied fonts appear in the font drop down menu.

You need to invoke it's use with some code and have it in a CSS style sheet. There is a tutorial here for uploading and installing custom fonts using Squirrel Fonts. http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/usi...
Another easier option is to use Google web fonts.
