Too many fonts are loaded and option to overcome it.

Recommended Posts

Hello, I believe that other users also notice that squarespace load too many fonts than what it configured and show on "fonts on my site".

The only trick that I’ve found to override it- is using adobe typekit.

So now my site loads only the font and style that I set to it (two fonts).

The build in option to use typekit in squarespace uses javascript.

Now days (for few years) there is an option that adobe offer for typekit users to use the kit as css (inject to html or @import).

I’ve tried it and it does make things quicker and with better results on website speed tests as google insight and others.

But here is the problem – after few hours of disabling js of typekit – squarespace again started to load lot of fonts for no reason.

So, what I want to ask from squarespace is simple – first stop to load unnecessary fonts that aren’t shown in site style as fonts in site.

The second thing is to replace javascript of typekit with css loading of typekit.

Where I can ask officially these features?
