bad URI(is not URI?): Gotham Bold Regular.ttf error, how to fix?

Colter Roche asked in Rails

I followed all the steps to add a fonts folder, register it with rails, and declare the @font-face in my .scss, but the same error keeps occuring. I am using rails 5.1.4, with the foundation framework for css. Please let me know what i need to do to fix this.

Could you try it without spaces in the font file name? Also I am almost sure that that /font is loaded by default already.
