I'm sorry that you ran into trouble with this. A 403 error usually means that the domain name of your website isn't include in the listing on your kit.
To add domains, go to http://typekit.com and launch your Kit Editor. Click Kit Settings in the upper right corner and add your domain to the domains field, then save your settings.
When you're done, republish your kit. The fonts will be available within a few minutes of republishing.
If that doesn't resolve the 403 error, would you share the URL of your website so I can take a look? If you don't want to post it in the forums, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
the domains have been correctly listed in the kit for months. i have republished many times. as i mentioned, the font is loading correctly on the page, but the 403 is still showing.
hi - just checking in as I have not heard from you. i believe this issue is affecting proper loading of other elements on my home page, so I would need to get this worked out as soon as possible.
thanks again for your help!
How do I get typekit to work on localhost?
Forgive me if this is information you already know. Just want to cover all the bases.
Typekit can be used locally. However there are some necessary steps that if left out, will cause the fonts not to render. In order to use Typekit locally, you've got to:
1. Be running a local server when testing your site in the browser. You can tell if you're running a local server by the URL of the local site. If it starts with: file:// then you are just viewing the local file in a browser and not running it from a local server.
If the local URL starts with: http:// then you're running a local server.
2. The domain of your local server has to be part of the domain list in your Kit. So, if your local server uses: localhost, you'll need to add this to your Kit's domains. If the local server uses something else, that will have to be listed in the domains list.
3. Make sure to republish the kit after adding/updating any domains, fonts, etc.
I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any further questions.
