Fontello : How to load and use fonts?

Problem :

You have downloaded the Fontello fonts that you wanted and now you want to get the fonts to display on your webpage. How to call the fonts?

Solution :

  1. A typical Fontello font zip file should have directory structure that look like this : fontello unzipped file directory structure

  2. Load the CSS file for the pages you want to use the fonts. For example, on this website. I would load the CSS file on the header section like this :

      <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="">

    The fontello.css file should be the default CSS file to load and it handles everything from there.

    NOTE : adjust the include path(href) to suit your website structure.

  3. To invoke the font, you can use class="fontello-icon-NAME" in the place where you want the font to appear. For example, in this page Like Us On Facebook widget, the Facebook Fontello font is called by :

      <i class="fontello-icon-facebook></i>

Hope this simple tutorial can be useful to you.
