How to disable Google fonts?


Thanks for a great theme.

IS it possible to disable Google fonts in Hiero theme?



Do you want to use other fonts? Other then Google Fonts? or what you mean by disabling Google Fonts?

Best Regards,


Yes, i would like to use any of the standard fonts.
I don’t like to give Google a ping for each page load.

Would it be hard to change?



You can use this Custom CSS to change the fonts to standard fonts:

h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, ul, ol, li, p, a {
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif !important;

Add the above CSS to your Child Theme’s style.css or in case you haven’t setup a Child Theme already, then you can also use this plugin to add the CSS to it:

Csaba, thanks for quick reply.

I will try out your solution, but im afraid the googleapi links will still be loaded on each page?

I wish theme designers would make the google dependence in their themes an option.

On a side note, most wp themes will break when accessing from within China as their great firewall will block anything google.



I didn’t see any call to google api after changing fonts, just make sure you don’t use a Google Fonts plugin or font set somewhere else.
