Cause


ShortPoint is using fonts with extension woff2 which are by default not supported in IIS and hence they get blocked by your SharePoint server.


Resolution


We need to enable .woff2 mime extension in IIS for your website;


Step 1: Navigate to Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and go to Mime Types



Step 2: Add Mime Type extension for .woff2



Click on Add and provide following value in new Mime Type filter;


Fine name extension: .woff2

MIME Type: application/x-font-woff


That's it. You do not need to reset your IIS. 



Thank you for your attention!
