Sydney 2 - very slow

Dear team,
I try to make my website with Sydeny 2 faster with plugins and image optimisation - but it does not help.

And: I cannot deactivate Google Fonts - I try it with plugins and codes - but it is not possible for me to deactivete them. I already stored the fonts on webspace and insert the code for using this webspace fonts…

Are you able to help me?

  • proposal to make it faster
  • proposal to disconnect Google fonts?

Thaks so much!
Best regards

Hi Simon,

Thank you for reaching out to us here. I am happy to help with your queries.

AFAIK, theme is not a single aspect that slows down your website. Plugins and other third-party scripts may also potentially slows down your website as well. To deal with this, I’d recommend checking this documentation.

I am not sure whether it is possible to do in the future versions of Sydney Pro. Because some our users may still use Google Fonts.

However, you can exclude Google Fonts from your website, by adding this PHP snippet to a child theme’s functions. Or use Code Snippets plugin in case you aren’t running a child theme.

    function sydney_pro_child_remove_google_fonts() {

       wp_dequeue_style( 'sydney-google-fonts' );

    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'sydney_pro_child_remove_google_fonts', 99999 );
