Google Fonts loaded by Web Font Loader are loaded asynchronously and therefore hard to improve. After tweaking Super Stealth for CAOS, it was about time that OMGF received a premium companion to play with. Introducing: OMGF Pro.
Being a ‘web designer’ (or web developer) is like being a surgeon, or a mechanic.
Not many people can critically assess your work. As long as the heart is beating, or the engine is running, most people have no choice but to assume you did a good job.
With this post I hope to change that. Consider this my attempt to set a bar and educate people of what makes a good web designer.
Since v2.1.0 OMGF sports a nifty new feature called Auto Detect. This feature allows OMGF to automatically find the fonts your theme is using. Together with the ‘remove Google Fonts‘ feature, OMGF makes it incredible easy to boost WordPress’ performance.
Now you little detectives must want to know how we can be sure that OMGF has detected all the fonts! Today I’ll show you how to setup OMGF’s Auto-detect feature and confirm that all fonts have been captured.
After a lot of research (a few months!) I managed to implement an efficient way to do it. Version 1.9.0 contains an experimental option to remove any Google Fonts that are enqueued in your WordPress blog.
But, for those where it doesn’t work, or for those that want to have full control, I provided an alternative: a complete guide on how to remove Google Fonts from your WordPress Theme.
