I'm seeing some strange behavior I can't explain.
I have a Web Project font kit that's loading fonts for Roboto, Bebas Neue Pro, and Merriweather.
However, I noticed in my browser's dev tools that the rendered page has the following on the html element:
<html lang="en" class="wf-proximanova-n7-active wf-proximanova-i7-active wf-proximanova-n4-active wf-proximanova-i4-active wf-active">
I know the wf-... classes are for managing fallbacks and are a way to manage FOUT issues.
What I don't understand at all is why it says "proximanova" in it when I'm not using that font at all.
Can someone shed some light on why it's loading a JS file for proxima nova fonts that I haven't requested and I'm not using? I'm a stickler for web performance and don't want to be loading anything that's not necessary — like Proxima Nova font that's not used at all.
I would include a link but I don't want it to inadvertenly start showing in google search results. Not sure how those work in this forum. If someone can confirm they're not indexed I'll gladly supply a link to a page that has the issue.
Thanks in advance!
@BillyHill You don't need to provide a link to a published website, but having the HTML file will be helpful for us to debug or see what you are seeing. I would want to see the embed code you are using as well. If you don't mind sending me more details, you can send a private message to me if you want to keep the details private.
@BillyHill I have referenced the website you provided via email and have found that a chat script included in the website is making a call to another project hosted through our service. Please see the network tab screenshots I have included. The second screenshot details the Request Initiator Chain. I suggest your team discuss with your chat vendor if this is a problem for your site and load speeds.
Thank you so much pzula!
That's exactly what I was looking for when trying to trace it back. Apparently neither Safari or Firefox show those exact details like Chrome does (which I didn't think to check with).
Very useful to know. I hope this post helps other troubleshoot any mystery font loading they may encounter.
Thanks again, you rock!
