I am getting the Ensure text remains visible during webfont load message for my website in PageSpeed Insights. I have set all icons to load as SVG in the theme settings. Am I missing a trick here?

Ah yes, it’s coming from the menu-icons plugin: /wp-content/plugins/menu-icons/vendor/codeinwp/icon-picker/css/types/fontawesome-webfont.woff2?v=4.7.0
I can’t see any @font-face rule in there to add font-display: swap; I assume this is because icons are being loaded but I’m not sure. Is there some way to add swap or maybe some other technique to remove the “Ensure text remains visible during webfont load” diagnostic message?October 21, 2019 at 11:01 am #1040578

Not unless the plugin author included a filter for that which i would doubt.
Personally would be better to look at an SVG solution to display the icons, instead of loading the entire FA icon library for a couple of menu icons.
The menu item label supports HTML so you can add an img / svg directly to the label.October 21, 2019 at 11:19 am #1040591
Really appreciate the advice. I’m not much a developer and still learning. Is the type of change that requires me to set up a child theme or can I use the additional CSS field?
I found this article that seems to deal with the issue – http://eoinodwyer.com/blog/svg/adding-svg-icons-to-the-wordpress-menu/ – is this the type of thing that will work?October 21, 2019 at 1:41 pm #1040704

I tried adding a test SVG for the Facebook icon in the primary nav. Do you have any idea why it’s not working? It’s coming back with a 404 error.
I added this to the navigation label – <(img src=”https://www.mywebsite.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/facebook-f-brands.svg” alt=”Facebook Profile” )/>

That was just an example just to make sure I added the tag correctly. My website is Loadlabz.comNovember 3, 2019 at 11:55 am #1052301
