Google Fonts | GF not used, but still show up

Hi everyone,

I know this issued has been covered a couple of times here, but I still can’t solve the issue - and it is important, since we are currently facing a wave of cease-and-desist letters in Germany.

The page is still loading the Google Font ‘Baskervville’ from Google direct. And I can’t find the reason why. It is not used on the web-site.

I have

  • cleared all unused fonts
  • scanned the complette .css - file for ‘Baskervville’
  • used Chrome Developer Tools
    and still I can’t find it.

Does anyone have any idea, where else I can search for this bloody font?

Many thanks,
and kind regards,

Hi Holgar, it looks like Baskerville is linked directly in your <head>;

<link rel="stylesheet" href="" media="all">
<script type="text/javascript">WebFont.load({  google: {    families: ["Baskervville:regular"]  }});</script>

Most likely due to-

  • a Font reference in your site settings
  • custom code in your Site or Page <head>

Start there. If you still can’t find it, then things get interesting. Let me know.

I’m curious about your cease-and-desist issue, is that related to the GDPR changes I’m hearing of? If @caliph 's post is accurate, then you’re in for a big project. The modern web doesn’t understand borders.

Your site also requests fonts from SendInBlue, another Google Font which is OpenSans, etc. It would be difficult to guarantee EU-only content for the site. You might try to find a proxy solution. If this is a problem that needs solved, I’m certain there’s a smart German tech team solving it.
