Set allow origin flag for fonts

Set allow origin flag for fonts

When putting fonts on a server to host them and use them somewhere else (eg. a cdn subdomain) they won't be loaded without the right Access-Control-Allow-Origin header.

To set that you can use the following lines in ether a .htaccess file for Apache or the nginx config:

# Apache config
<FilesMatch ".(eot|ttf|otf|woff)">
	Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"

# nginx config
if ($filename ~* ^.*?\.(eot)|(ttf)|(woff)$){
	add_header Access-Control-Allow-Origin *;

Test if they can be loaded with the following console command:

$ curl -I

Which should give a result like the following:

# Result
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: Apache
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *
