Text Flickering on Pageload

Hi guys,

Getting a weird flickering effect on the text whenever I change pages which is driving me crazy.


The site like flickers to the templated font on the nav, before loading the correct font.

See below GIF of my issue.

Here is my site Read-Only:


Hi @ShaquilleCoulter

Thanks for posting and welcome to the Forums. This is a commonly asked question on the forums. In the future, please be sure to search for existing threads before creating a new one. :slight_smile:

This issue is called FOUT (Flash of Unstyled Text) and you can read more on this here: https://webdesign.tutsplus.com/articles/quick-tip-avoid-fout-by-adding-a-web-font-preloader--webdesign-8287 1

You can fix this by adding a bit of custom code to your site — Dave explains this more here: Flash of unstyled text - fallback fonts loads initially then switches to google font

Alternatively, you can try downloading the Google font, then uploading it to your site as a custom font.

I hope this helps!

Thanks Brando. Appreciate you taking the time to reply. I did have a quick google but nothing that worked came up. Either way, cheers!
