default font "flicker"

  • Author

    I customized the theme with a different font type (Minion Pro) from the original script-style font type. Unfortunately whenever the page loads there is a flicker effect where the title is shown in default font for half a second before it is shown in the custom-selected one.

    How can I fix this so the default font does not appear at all?

    Hi Mark,

    This tends to occur with font changing plugins because the base font style remains the same. It might just be a matter of load order. So, you could try adding the following style in the Additional CSS section of the Customizer:

    #header .site-title {
      font-family: 'minion-pro-1', serif;

    I hope this helps. Let us know if there is anything else.



    You are the best. Worked like a charm. Thank you!

    Glad that helped, Mark! You’re welcome.



    Hi everyone,
    The same thing occurs and the problem still remains even after the additional CSS.
    Thanks for your help if you guys have any tips.

    Please note the CSS needed for your site will be likely different than the CSS provided to the previous user, since I assume it’s not the same font.

    You will need to customize the previously provided CSS to match the font you are using.




    Hi and thank you for your time and your answer.
    Indeed I’ve tried additional CSS customized with the front I use but the problem was still remaining. Then WP support fixed it adding .wf-loading { display: none; }
    Thanks again!
