    Hi there,

    I followed the GeneratePress guide to switch to local fonts for two font families on my site (Montserrat and Lato). I also followed the guide to add PHP to completely remove Google fonts from GeneratePress.

    However, when I am running a speed test at Pingdom, I am seeing 7 requests for fonts.gstatic.com and 2 requests for fonts.googleapis.com.

    Any idea what might be causing this since it seems like I have done everything correctly in the guide?

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    the Google ReCaptcha is making the requests for Roboto.
    Not sure if they offer a fix for that…

    Montserrat – looks like some of the options in the Customizer are still selecting the Google Font.

    You can try the snippet here to stop the theme from loading any google styles:

    Hey David,

    I have both of these snippets running, oddly. Is it possible that GenerateBlocks is still pulling Google Fonts?

    I am not seeing the Google request for Montserrat any more – maybe a left over in the cache?

    Roboto is being called by Recaptcha which the theme has no control over. But any chrome browser / device will have that font installed so the request shouldn’t be required.
