Disable enqueuing of Open Sans and other fonts used by WordPress from Google.
Since I use SVN update I used to just "maintain" a one-line patch that archives this, but having a plug-in is IMHO better.
Since WordPress already includes functionality for dealing with the case that OpenSanse might not be viable for some reason I really don't see why this can't be a preference in the admin interface somewhere. Why does this require this kind of hack?
this is one of the plugins that should be part of core and should be selectable in Settings.
Thank dimadin a lot! My blog responds much faster than before, behind China Fucking Great Firewall.
It is tested in wordpress 4.1.1. It works. But it would be better to solve the issue by wordpress designers. I mean they should remove those links from wordpress or keep them as default deactivated.
Thanks to the developer of this plugin.
Works like a charm.
This is an excellent little plugin. It does exactly what it says it does, with no fuss and no messing around.
This plugin is good however, I noticed if I try to load my wordpress site in Chrome (with China VPN switched on), its still slow compared to FF and Safari. Also, I still see its loading data from font.googleapis.com
Any idea why?
Being located in China, but using a host in the U.S. - getting the Google Fonts out of my pages brought an average 30 second load time down to about a 10 second load time (which is acceptable here). Could have deleted all this manually, but why bother - the plugin works with no problems.
I loved this plugin. I was having this problem initially due to the fact that the W3 Total Cache was not flushed (Make sure you do that if you have similar caching plugins) and I was getting those 8 external Lato font requests consistently from Google. Now it's working like a charm. Thanks for the hark work. My page speed has been increased :)
Great little plugin that speeds up upload time significantly in countries like China where google services are partly blocked and thoroughly screened. Previously each page upload would get paused on google translator (10s) and 'loading fonts.googleapis.com' (10s). Now each page loads in 1-3s!
