Font files do not appear in DXC assets folder

  • Updated

This article describes an issue where font files are not loading from the assets folder in DXC. CSS, JS, and images load fine but not fonts. The issue is with .woff, .woff2, and .eot files.

The resolution is to add the MIME types to the static content section of the web.config. For example:

<remove fileExtension=".eot" />
<mimeMap fileExtension=".eot" mimeType="application/" />
<remove fileExtension=".ttf" />
<mimeMap fileExtension=".ttf" mimeType="application/x-font-ttf" />
<remove fileExtension=".ttc" />
<mimeMap fileExtension=".ttc" mimeType="application/x-font-ttf" />
<remove fileExtension=".otf" />
<mimeMap fileExtension=".otf" mimeType="font/opentype" />
<remove fileExtension=".woff" />
<mimeMap fileExtension=".woff" mimeType="application/font-woff" />
<remove fileExtension=".woff2" />
<mimeMap fileExtension=".woff2" mimeType="application/x-font-woff" />
