    Hi, Until recently my blog opened showing the correct font with no problem. Suddenly it seems to start with one font and then jump to the correct one. Any ideas? Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    In a chat about something else I was advised that it might depend on my broadband speed. I haven’t changed the equipment or anything but this is a possible explanation. Thanks.

    When we recently added free Google fonts to all sites across WordPress.com, we changed the way web fonts are loaded. On slower connections, we used to show a blank page before the content loaded – now, we display the content in the theme’s default font first, so no one sees a blank page. We realize this means that there may be a flash of a different font before the page finishes loading, but we think overall this is better for folks on slower connections than seeing a blank screen.

    This CSS snippet should return your site to the previous behaviour on loading:

    .wf-loading body {
      visibility: hidden;
    }

    Let me know how it goes.

    Thank you, Kathryn. I’m sorry to be so ignorant but I don’t know what to do with the CSS snippet! Could you elucidate? Thanks.

    You would open up the Customizer and add it in the CSS panel, where you’ve already added this snippet earlier:

    #post .sleeve {
    	border-top: none;
    }
