Resolved! Loading Your Google Fonts Over https (SSL) Sites

I couldn’t believe how amazingly simple it was! I was searching for days and nights how to make my google fonts properly load over on my WordPress https (SSL) site.

Here’s the basic story. I’m running an e-Commerce store with a Secure Sockets Layer installed on the domain. I created the logo with “La Belle Aurore” font from Google. When customers pay for their purchase, they have to land on the cart page showing https. My logo won’t be properly showing when my customer uses IE (Internet Explorer 11) browsers or my Safari from iPhones, so I really had resolve this issue.

I’ve seen some people trying to resolve the issue by creating weird code in the .htaccess file or tweaking the .function file in WordPress theme. I’ve tried it, but none of them actually worked for me.

Ta-Dah! It was simpler than I thought. I deleted the http: part on my CSS file, and it worked like magic! So DO “//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=XXX”, NOT “http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=XXX”

@import url(//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=NAME_OF_YOUR_FONT_FAMILY);

I used “La Belle Aurore” font on my site, so here’s what I have. @import url(//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=La+Belle+Aurore); I hope this method save your time as well. Good luck!

This was pretty shocking moments when seeing the weird strange codes on my WordPress website. I was looking all over to resolve the issue and it worked for me. This could has happened because you have upload your plugin directly through FTP and didn’t go through the backend and install it proper way.

Which I did to make all this mess. I uploaded my files directly through FTP.


I had back ups files, but these weird strange characters were showing up on top of every pages I go even I replaced it with my backed up files.

If you see the similar things showing, just de-activate the plugin that causing the issue, or you can delete the plugin folder directly from your FTP. And here’s what you should do next, re-install the plugin through the WordPress backend (admin) panel. It worked like a charm.

You might still see after, but don’t go crazy. There is a good chance your browser’s cache might need to be refreshed. Hit “Reload” the browser or Shift + “Reload” and it should work fine.
