How to host fonts locally

I followed these instructions to put Lato in the font folder under my main folder, then added the code to CSS in hcild theme.

However, I see that the font is still being pulled front Google. How can I fix this?

Hi There,

Thank you for writing in, but why do you want to do that? X and PRO offer you the Google Fonts (Theme Options > Typography). You can also request Google Fonts by just adding an @import statement on your child theme style.css file (

But If you really need to host the Google fonts, get all the font files and follow the guide provided here.


Good morning,
I want to host the Google fonts so that the site loads more quickly.

Hi there,

I’m not sure how you implemented it, but I’m sure the instructions provided in this URL are correct. Please provide your site’s URL where you implemented this.

But I don’t see any point doing this, the browser still needs to download the font to render it, either from your site or from Google. Personally, I prefer it to be hosted it in google since it acts like CDN and Cloud hosting which obviously faster than self-hosted files.


and here’s why:

This worked but I see that it is now pulling from Google and from my CDN. How do I get it to not pull from Google?

There is no option for that in X and Pro. It could be possible with custom development but that would be outside the scope of our support.

Thank you for understanding.
