Support » Plugin: Nimble Page Builder » Website fonts swap even though pre-load fonts is turned off

  • When my website first loads, it displays a different set of fonts than those that I have selected. Then they are quickly swapped out for the fonts I’ve chosen.

    I had this issue a few months ago and thought I’d figured it out. At the time, I turned off “Preload Google Fonts” in both Customizr (Advanced Options –> Website Performances) and in Nimble Builder (Site Wide Options). Although now, I can’t find Nimble Builder’s “Preload Google Fonts” option. Was it removed or moved elsewhere? Anyway, After I turned these settings off, my selected fonts seemed to load correctly at the time.

    But I am noticing that the fonts still swap when my website first loads.

    Any suggestions?

    OK thanks for reporting the problem. No suggestions for now, I need to explore this issue to understand the problem.

    Update: Upon further investigation, this issue does not seem to be caused by Nimble Builder. When I disable Nimble Builder (and all other plugins) and leave Customizr theme active, the fonts still swap. So I think it has to do with the Customizr theme.

    I think issue is related to old fonts which are somehow being saved into memory somewhere. When site first loads, it switches between multiple fonts and the menu shifts back and forth too.

    Update, part 2:

    I have tested this more and when the site first loads, it appears to choose “Impact and Palatino” from the Customizr font picker before it switches to the font I have actually chosen, which is Roboto.

    If I choose from one of the 4 sets of “Web Safe font pairs”, it seems to work fine and not swap fonts. It also seems to work fine if I choose Helvetica, Palatino Linotype, Verdana, and Times New Roman.

    It does not like the Google Font pairs and a lot of other single fonts. It has swap issues with those.

    Once I reactivate Nimble Builder, I see the same thing happening with the Nimble Builder sections. I have to choose a font like “Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif” for it not to swap. Other Nimble Builder sections that have a font like “Monserrat 300” also have the swap issue, and swap from something else first.

    It seems like the only thing Customizr and Nimble Builder will tolerate are basic boring system fonts.

    I tried disabling all plugins, installed a fresh copy of Customizr and deactivated child theme, and this issue still occurred.

    Lastly, I created a brand new WordPress install with only the Customizr theme installed (no plugins), and the font issue still occurs.

    Here is the freshly installed site:

    So I’m quite sure that this is a Customizr bug.
