    Hi,

    I need this becasue of the following reasons:
    1- Page speed
    2- Most importantly the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)

    I’ve tried to add the following code in child-theme functions.php that I’ve found in another topic from years ago on your website but it didn’t work:

    function custom_remove_styles() {
    global $wp_styles;
    wp_dequeue_style('font-roboto');
    wp_dequeue_style('font-open-sans');
    }
    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'custom_remove_styles' ,131);

    My question is:
    1) How can I remove/dequeue fonts.googleapis.com with functions.php?
    2) Do I need to make changes in css (or other places) when using custom fonts?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    XStore Control Panel -> Custom fonts, after you upload fonts you may select them in the list of Typography fonts (Theme Options -> Typography) -> http://prntscr.com/vobjsf , and so on. So that the uploaded font will be loaded locally.

    Hi,

    I’ve already tried that but that doesn’t remove or dequeue the fonts.googleapis.com from the header https://prnt.sc/KAqnrePIJsPQ
    https://prnt.sc/ygftLlFgetmS

    I want to remove it completely.
    Regards

    Hi ,

    Thanks for your answers!

    By adding the following code to child functions.php it disabled google fonts.
    add_filter( 'elementor/frontend/print_google_fonts', '__return_false' );
