    Hi. So I test my site with GTmetrix and saw the woff2 font is showing up (today) on single posts despite choosing SVG in the general settings in the customizer. Check the waterfall if you need to confirm. How to disable this?

    Hi there,

    its because of the custom menu item you have added the slideout toggle to, it will call the font not the SVG.

    Aha. Makes sense. How do I replace that with SVG?

    You could do something like this:

    Create a new custom menu item.
    Give it a custom class eg. custom-toggle
    Add this is as your menu item label:

    <span class="gp-icon icon-menu-bars"><svg viewBox="0 0 512 512" aria-hidden="true" role="img" version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" width="1em" height="1em">
    <path d="M0 96c0-13.255 10.745-24 24-24h464c13.255 0 24 10.745 24 24s-10.745 24-24 24H24c-13.255 0-24-10.745-24-24zm0 160c0-13.255 10.745-24 24-24h464c13.255 0 24 10.745 24 24s-10.745 24-24 24H24c-13.255 0-24-10.745-24-24zm0 160c0-13.255 10.745-24 24-24h464c13.255 0 24 10.745 24 24s-10.745 24-24 24H24c-13.255 0-24-10.745-24-24z"></path>
    </svg>
    </span>

    Then use this CSS to hide the dropdown toggle icon for the sub menu:

    .custom-toggle .dropdown-menu-toggle {
        display: none !important;
    }

    Thanks. It worked. How do I centre-align the icon? It seems with the removal of the dropdown icon the hamburger icon shifts to the left.

    Figured it out. padding-right:20px.

    Hi David. Checked again with gtmetrix and the font is still loading.

    Try clearing your caches – the CSS for some of the icon fonts is still be called from cached CSS.

    This is very strange because even before posting the previous comment, I flushed all cache (Litespeed cache) and I have done so several times even at the server level but the font is still showing. It goes away if I deactivate the plugin.

    Update: Solved by deleting the cache folder via FTP.

    Caches can be a right pain sometimes. Glad to hear you got it resolved.
