    Hi everybody
    I need to use the “&display=swap” URL parameter on the Google fonts request, as are described on https://www.tezify.com/how-to/font_display_for_google_fonts/

    So, on my DOM, where it says:
    <link rel='stylesheet' id='fluida-googlefonts-css' href='//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans%7COpen+Sans+Condensed300%7COpen+Sans%3A400%7COpen+Sans+Condensed%3A300%2C300%7COpen+Sans%3A700%7COpen+Sans%3A300&ver=1.3.0' type='text/css' media='all' />

    Need it says something like:
    <link rel='stylesheet' id='fluida-googlefonts-css' href='//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans%7COpen+Sans+Condensed300%7COpen+Sans%3A400%7COpen+Sans+Condensed%3A300%2C300%7COpen+Sans%3A700%7COpen+Sans%3A300&#038&display=swap;ver=1.3.0' type='text/css' media='all' />

    Maybe I could modify the functions that are in includes/styles.php to not use an external plugin, but I don´t know how. Any idea?

    // Enqueue google fonts with subsets separately
    	foreach( $gfonts as $i => $gfont ):
    		if ( strpos( $gfont, "&" ) === false):
    		   // do nothing
    		else:
    			wp_enqueue_style( 'fluida-googlefont' . $i, '//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=' . $gfont, null, _CRYOUT_THEME_VERSION );
    			unset( $gfonts[$i] );
    			unset( $roots[$i] );
    		endif;
    	endforeach;
    
    	// Merged google fonts
    	if ( count( $gfonts ) > 0 ):
    		wp_enqueue_style( 'fluida-googlefonts', '//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=' . implode( "|" , array_unique( array_merge( $roots, $gfonts ) ) ), null, _CRYOUT_THEME_VERSION );
    	endif;

    Well, I managed to do it by myself, even though I’m not a programmer. It would be nice to add it in future updates.
    Thanks in advance!

    You can also try using the Google font identifier field to define the font name and append &display=swap to that name.

    So if I am reading and groking the instructions correctly, if I want to use “Jost” from the Google Font library, I would change the dropdown to Custom and enter Jost&display=swap into the text box?

    Just making sure I’m looking in the right direction – just finished migrating to Fluida from another theme and made all the tweaks except for my typography and noted the themes do not include the display=swap when running PageSpeed

    John, yes that’s almost correct, although you also need to include the font weights with the identifier (to force the theme to load that font family separately and keep the display=swap parameter), eg:
    Jost:100,200,300,400,500,600,700,800,900&display=swap
