I really appreciate the opportunity to clarify here. I’ve made a screencast showing you a method of never loading fonts from external sources on the front end of the site. You can view that screencast here:
I’ve also added your vote and comment to this feedback post on our site: https://feedback.givewp.com/feature-requests/p/global-option-for-font-loading
That feature request has not seen a lot of votes, but I agree it would be handy to have a site-wide setting for disabling those fonts. Vote and comment there.
As for a consent policy, I’d highly recommend that you add a note to your privacy page included by default in WordPress. You can see it at example.com/wp-admin/options-privacy.php?tab=policyguide (replacing example.com with your site URL)
Given the workaround above, you’d only need to gain consent from logged-in users for connecting to that font server, but you could also add it to the front end if you prefer to use the Donor Dashboard and other features of GiveWP that load fonts from external resources.
I do think our response in the support forum could have been more clear, and I appreciate the opportunity to clarify. Hopefully this clarification can earn back some of the stars you left off of your rating!
At the moment you have to pay if you use google fonts without strict consent. Until then Google Fonts are not allowed to load completely.
I’m using the Legacy form ONLY.
I’m using KadenceWP Theme. Kadence Theme is set to “Load google fonts locally”.
This is loaded when GiveWP is active:
<link rel=’stylesheet’ id=’kadence-givewp-iframe-fonts-css’ href=’https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans%3Aregular%2C700%2C600%7CInter%3A700%2C600&display=swap&ver=6.0.1′ media=’all’ />
When I deactivate Give Plugin, Google Fonts is no longer loading.
First, I reached out to the KadenceWP theme team to figure out why their setting for loading Google Fonts locally was not respecting that GiveWP font, and they were able to pinpoint the issue, and look to have a release very soon that will resolve that!
Next, thanks for the revised review! I really appreciate it.
Have a great day.
Thanks for the video!
This helped to disable Google Fonts in a single form:
Go to settings of GiveWP
Edit target form
Go to Visual Appearance -> Primary Font and choose “User’s System Font”
