Support » Themes and Templates » Removing Open Sans from Twenty Twelve Theme

  • I was playing with GTMetrix and a test site I have running a child theme of Twenty Twelve. I noticed in the Timeline that it was calling not only my fonts from Google but Open Sans (I hadn’t read enough to know Open Sans is a “feature” of the new theme).

    Since I didn’t want to use it, I thought I’d remove it, and found (in functions.php) the following note:

    * To disable in a child theme, use wp_dequeue_style()
    	 * function mytheme_dequeue_fonts() {
    	 *     wp_dequeue_style( 'twentytwelve-fonts' );
    	 * }
    	 * add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'mytheme_dequeue_fonts', 11 );

    So I un-commented it and put php stuff around it, put it in functions.php (I already had one from registering an extra menu).

    It removed Open Sans–page looks good, no call for Open Sans in the Timeline any more. Small problem: no backend to the site displays! Is it all in Open Sans, or what?

    I removed the dequeue stuff from functions.php, and all is well. But I really don’t want to be calling fonts I am not using.
