Default Answered: Font Error

I am new to the forums so I sincerely apologise if I have posted this in the wrong place or breached forum etiquette in any way.

My issue is that I have set my default post font to Century Gothic on the user options page. However, the font that shows up in my posts is not Century Gothic. I know this because Century Gothic is my favourite font, and it is sans-serif, yet a serif font is shown instead (which I believe to be Book Antiqua).

I have double checked that I haven't accidentally saved my font as Book Antiqua. It appears that Book Antiqua is displaying for both itself and Century Gothic.

^ Yes you're right, both of them are the same. Century Gothic as somehow been replaced with Book Antiqua. I hope an admin or mod can sort it so that you can use your favourite font but if you don't like book antiqua then I guess it's best to change which font is being used as your default for now.

It doesn't appear to be an issue with your account but an issue with that font going to the wrong file. If this was a pack add-on for vbulliten (which it may well be) then there may not be anything anyone can do

Thanks for your help NedOwl. I hope they can fix it. I'll go and find myself another nice sans-serif for the meantime.

I don't know if they fixed it yet, but it's appearing as Century Gothic now, at least on my screen. I hope it's fixed for you too.

Default Re: Font Error

I just tried a different browser. It appears to be sans-serif in IE and serif in FF. However, the sans-serif font displaying in IE is still not Century Gothic due to the double-story lower case 'a' (it should be single-story in CG).

A note though, when you're doing a Quick Reply, it should just show up as a basic font, and in black. But once you post, it should take you to your settings. (Like for me, once I post, it's in Purple-colored Georgia)

In my post one of the 'testing this font' lines is in the antiqua book font and the other is in century gothic... You see the problem? They're both the same.

They're definitely the same on Safari on my iPad and they were on Chrome on my MacBook Pro when I actually posted that message.

Screenshot of what it looks like to me (sorry for the length on screenshot but the full website of photo bucket takes too long to edit on this and the app doesn't have a crop function) :-
