Support » Plugin: Max Mega Menu » font-display: swap and &display=swap

    Hi,

    Would it be possible to add font-display: swap and &display=swap where applicable to gain better Google Page Speed scores?

    Currently Google Page Speed complains about the default font in Mega Menu and FOIT. I am also using another Google font named Architects Daughter but it is the SourceSansPro font that I would like to optimise.

    Many thanks

    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    Please check the bottom of this page for the code needed to add “display=swap” to the google fonts URL:

    Thank you Tom, apologies for not looking through the documentation first.

    I did have a thorough look through the settings options but could not find anything.

    Steve.

    Hi Steve,

    No problem – I added it after you asked 🙂

    Thanks Tom,

    Just one more question (apologies as I have only just had a chance to test this fully), I have added the snippet to my functions.php but when running a Google page speed test and looking at the Desktop results I can see the font files for the Google font sourcesanpro are triggering an opportunity. I think this is because the font does not have font-display: swap in the css like the Google Example:

    @font-face {
      font-family: 'Pacifico';
      font-style: normal;
      font-weight: 400;
      src: local('Pacifico Regular'), local('Pacifico-Regular'), url(https://fonts.gstatic.com/s/pacifico/v12/FwZY7-Qmy14u9lezJ-6H6MmBp0u-.woff2) format('woff2');
      font-display: swap;
    }

    Might it be possible to add this to all the font variations? This would at least improve things from that perspective.

    I hope I am not being picky but I am trying to prepare the site as best as I can for the up and coming changes where Google will use core web vitals as a ranking factor.

    Thanks again.

    Steve.
