Not Solved Disappearing icons...
Not Solved
If needed, my forum is here:

Notice the highlighted sections in the following screenshot:

[Image: LFM-MissingIcon.JPG]

Notice that in the place where there should be an icon, there appears to be a hex # instead.

Now, the ONLY thing I do is log out...and now notice that the icons appear...

Now, the ONLY thing I do is log back in...and notice that the icons are still appearing properly...

I cannot recreate the problem on purpose...but as I am working around in the forum, I suddenly notice that the icons are gone again.

Sometimes this happens using the following: (non-www)

It's because the browser thinks there is a cross domain issue.

To fix it, create a .htaccess file with the following and save:

<FilesMatch "\.(ttf|otf|eot|woff)$">
  <IfModule mod_headers.c>
    Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"

Place .htaccess file wherever your custom font icon stylesheet is

ThemeFreaknet, I appreciate the level of knowledge that you have and the quality of response that you provide.

I have a .htaccess file in the root directory where the forum software is installed.  (See below if need be.)

So, if I am understanding you, I should create a new .htaccess file and place it where my custom font icon stylesheet is. 

Unfortunately I don't know where that is.

I have a standard install in

Where is the stylesheet you are referring to from there?  (I'm using the Square theme.)

Also, is there a place I can just add "www." to the setting and make the problem go away by fixing that instead?

Moved to theme support. You're probably best off finding the author of the theme, and asking them for assistance.

Tom K., I would love to go to the author for support...except it doesn't exist. tells me:

The author of the project has decided to give support on the following website (click the URL at your own risk!): »

But, that link is a dead link that goes nowhere...and as well as don't go anywhere either.

^ if you are using firefox then you can try this suggestion
Not Solved
Thanks .m.

Firefox is my main browser ... but "Firefox / Preferences / Content / Advanced and tick the box that says Allow pages to choose their own fonts" is already that's not the issue in my case.

Also, I checked Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Opera...and the problem is exhibited in all these browsers as well.

The only difference is what shows up in the missing icon space. Some show nothing...some show numbers and letters.

But again, if I fool around a bit...such as logging in or out...then the icons will usually appear properly for some undetermined period of time.

So, still looking for a solution here.

Well, I have discovered that if I disable "Search engine friendly URLs", then my icons show up properly.

I'm guessing that means my .htaccess file is causing the problem.
