Webfonts missing after update (with resolution)
Have seen others with this or a very similar issue. After updating either Wordpress (4.9.6) and/or Laytheme (2.5.5) today, my Webfonts disappeared from my site.
I noticed after reverting to a backup, that the /fonts folder inside (public_html/wp-content/themes/lay/) from my files has been wiped. Strangely, this can't be added back in saying that it already exists.
A resolution for this is to:
Make a new fonts folder (with a different name) and add files back into:
Update the link tag in Webfonts > Font manager
Admins, do you know what the cause of this is?
I do not have that issue but will check with Armin what could be the problem.
hey your webfont files shouldn't be in your theme folder.
when you add a .woff webfont in "Lay Options" -> "Webfonts", they are uploaded to your "uploads" folder.
Everytime you update lay theme, your whole "lay" folder is replaced, deleting all changes you have made to files in there.
Thank you for looking into this.
The font file types (purchased from and supplied from Optimo) are EOT and SVG. Would this affect things at all?
Thanks for pointing out the placement of the files, I'll move soon. Weirdly, this is the first update where I've noticed the issue happening.
please convert the font to woff:
to be able to upload it via "lay options" -> "webfonts"
