Support » Theme: CoverNews » Slow Website Speed : Fonts file causing increase page load time

  • Today i ran a analysis of my website: [ redundant link removed ] on gtmetrix.com

    One of the thing which caught my attention was Fonts file whose size are quite small(in few kbs) were taking a long time to load.

    When cross checking with PageSpeed Insights, it showed i can save aprorox 200m/s on each font file.
    Font files are :

    https://knowledgespear.com/wp-content/themes/covernews/assets/font-awesome-v5/webfonts/fa-brands-400.woff2
    https://knowledgespear.com/wp-content/themes/covernews/assets/font-awesome-v5/webfonts/fa-regular-400.woff2
    https://knowledgespear.com/wp-content/themes/covernews/assets/font-awesome-v5/webfonts/fa-solid-900.woff2

    Can anybody suggest some tips to improve my loading time (current:4.7s) and PageSpeed Score(current:61) by making these fonts files load faster?

    Hey!
    I was facing the same error. It can be solved by using the Asset Cleaner Plugin. Open settings, click on local fonts and preload these specified fonts causing your web slower.
