Font Changes with HTTPS

posts: 53 Australia


I have recently found that my hoster supports https by default. All this time I've been using http like a sucker.

Anyway, I have noticed that some fonts are different when using https. It's only subtle, but definitely different.
Do you know why?

I am using Tiki 15.2 with the Shapely theme.

To see what I'm talking about, compare these pages:

Did you check the warning messages? Here is one:

Mixed Content: The page at 'https://networkdirection.net/ASA+Cluster+Design' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure stylesheet 'http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway%3A100%2C300%2C400%2C500%2C600%2C700%7COpen+Sans%3A400%2C500%2C600&ver=4.6.1'. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.

Using different a stylesheet would cause a difference in how it looks.

That explains it, thanks!

I'm not great with the web, and I'm still learning Tiki. How did you get those error messages?

I used Chrome, clicked on the Customize and control icon, selected More tools, Developers tools, and the errors are listed under Console. Other browsers probably have something similar.

Thanks! It even shows the line numbers that need fixing!
That's great tip
