How to Optimise Google Font Loading

in Rife Posts: 78
Hi Guys - Hope your well

I am seeing a site load time issue with google fonts being loaded either multiple times or just taking up way too much time - see pingdom link here and screenshot

I have now done every optimisation I know but need to get these fonts loading faster. I am using the same fonts for the whole site

I started looking at the CSS files but there are a many and I dont know where to make any changes

Do you have a recommended way to load these fonts in a combined way or faster for your theme

Thanks a lot :)

    Hey there:-)

    On your place, I wouldn't waste time on such optimizations, as it hardly gives anything back in return.

    Anyway, Autopimize plugin( https://wordpress.org/plugins/autoptimize/ ) has the option to group all google fonts used on the site and make only one request instead of many. However, I am not sure, if a number of requested files from google will go down in the end.

    Anyway, just be sure to disable theme optimization for it if you will use plugin Appearance → Customize → Miscellaneous Settings → Optimization → Use the web-font loading script if you will try to sue this plugin.

    With kind regards.
