    Hello,

    I am using special heading set to “Heading Style Classic (centered, italic)” but, rather than using the actual italic weight for the font, it is just slanting the letters in a “faux italics.”

    The first image on this page the special heading: http://capstone-vision.flywheelsites.com/

    This is what the font is supposed to look like in italics: https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Droid+Serif

    Is there a way to actually set this heading to actually be Droid Serif Italic? Thank you!

    Hey Kirstie,

    Thank you for using Enfold.

    Please try to add the italic version as a separate font.

    Thanks for the response. I decided to use Droid Serif because it was already installed with Enfold and I wanted to avoid any custom code for this website. Is there a reason why the italic weight is not already installed? I am having the same problem with bold in Droid Sans. Are all of the fonts that come pre-loaded with Enfold only available in regular weight?

    Hi,

    It’s not working because the specific font style or weight is not included in the theme’s Droid Serif font

    Best regards,

    Are there any fonts that come installed with Enfold that have the actual italic and bold weights included?

    I did decide to add my own fonts to the functions.php. I am not using a child theme, so when the theme updates, will I have to add the code back into the functions.php?

    Hi MattJensenMarketing,

    Yes, you will have to put the code there again after every update. I strongly recommend using a child theme.

    If you need further assistance please let us know.

    I have set up a child theme, but every time I try to install it, the site shuts down with an “HTTP 500” error.

    The problem is with the functions.php file, because when I upload a blank functions.php, it works. But, in order to get the fonts I want, I need to add them to my functions.php. This is what my functions.php file looks like when I get the error:

    <?php
    
    /*
    * Add your own functions here. You can also copy some of the theme functions into this file. 
    * WordPress will use those functions instead of the original functions then.
    */
    
    add_filter( 'avf_google_heading_font', 'avia_add_heading_font');
    function avia_add_heading_font($fonts)
    {
    $fonts['Merriweather'] = 'Merriweather:400,400i,700,700i';
    $fonts['Merriweather Sans'] = 'Merriweather Sans:300,300i,700,700i';
    return $fonts;
    }
    
    add_filter( 'avf_google_content_font', 'avia_add_content_font');
    function avia_add_content_font($fonts)
    {
    $fonts['Merriweather'] = 'Merriweather:400,400i,700,700i';
    $fonts['Merriweather Sans'] = 'Merriweather Sans:300,300i,700,700i';
    return $fonts;
    }

    Do you see anything here that would cause the site to crash? Thank you!

    Hi,

    I added the code/filter above but I can’t reproduce the error. Is there any existing filter in the theme files?

    Best regards,

    I was able to figure out what the problem was. I hadn’t deleted the filter from the parent Enfold file, so they must have been conflicting. Thanks for your help with this! This topic can now be closed.
