    I am using the Google font Open Sans on all my Enfold websites (not hosted locally but from Google’s CDN).
    It’s the only font I use for the whole website.

    But I see that this font is also always loaded:

    – If I am correct then Entypo-fontello is the deafult font from the Enfold theme?
    – Can I delete or prevent Entypo-fontello to be loaded?
    – Or can I change the Enfold deafult font in to another font?

    In case the Google font Open Sans can not be downloaded from Google’s CDN, does that mean Enfold is using Entypo-fontello has a failback font and uses this font instead of Open Sans when there is an issue with loading Open Sans?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Alwin,

    Thanks for contacting us!

    Entypo-fontello are the default icon fonts used in Enfold. Social icons, navigation and scroll to top arrows are using entypo-fontello fonts. In case Open Sans cannot be downloaded from Google’s CDN, fallback font families Helvetica or Arial would be used instead.

    I hope that helps :)



    Hello Yigit,

    “Entypo-fontello are the default icon fonts used in Enfold”… haha, now I understand why this file is always loaded, and can’t be turned of :)

    Has for the fallback fonts; you say these are Helvetica or Arial. But why these 2 fonts are fallback? Is that something that Google fonts sets up, or is it an Enfold setting that results in these 2 fonts being used as fallback?

    In WP-Rocket I can preload wp-content/themes/enfold/config-templatebuilder/avia-template-builder/assets/fonts/entypo-fontello.woff2
    Do you think that is a good idea, or would it just slow down the first rendering of the site?



    Thank you for your patience, the fallback fonts Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif were chosen by the Dev Team because they are the standard fallback fonts used the in WordPress core.
    Preloading entypo-fontello with WP-Rocket is probably a good idea because your visitors will eventually need to load it, but if you are tring to get the fastest first load time then don’t, but your visitors will eventually need to load it anyways.

    Best regards,


    Thanks for expaling wehere the fallback fonts are coming from :)

    I wil do some test with and without preloading entypo-fontello.

    You can close this topic now,\.
