Support » Plugin: OMGF | Host Google Fonts Locally » Slower, without some functions, no effects can be seen

  • I waited patiently for 2 weeks, hoping that something would change. It is not the same plugin anymore. There is no option to add subsets (eg Latin-Ext). In measurements on PINGDOM and GTMETRIX, a page without this plugin has 1-2 queries less and is 0.5 to 0.8 seconds faster. It’s a pity because after 3 years the plugin was uninstalled from over 30 pages. Good luck!

    Hi (again),

    Sorry to hear you don’t like the new direction OMGF has taken in v4.

    I don’t understand one thing, though. The Auto Detected fonts feature (in free or pro) never had an option to add subsets. That option was actually introduced in v4 Pro.

    If you’re referring to the ability to add additional fonts, that’ll be released in a separate (free) add-on soon. As I stated clearly in the changelog.

    About speed tests, I can’t reproduce the issues your mentioning: OMGF doesn’t add queries (I assume you mean requests?), it replaces them. And v4 does that in a way faster fashion, compared to v3. So what you’re experiencing might be a bug or some incompatibility with a theme or plugin you’re using. I don’t know and I can’t know without getting more information.

    I’ve responded to your remarks throughout the support forum, trying to be of help, but you never responded. And I can’t be of any use if your ticket just states: “It doesn’t work.”
