I want to share with you my test on yellow tab tools and show that it creates warning that fonts are too large.

They suggest using woff2 or better compression to be not overweight

Maybe you can do something about it. Maybe it's not worth attention

Hi @redpillersi,

This doesn't have any relation to the wpDiscuz plugin. The plugin just uses the Font Awesome library.

Hi @redpillersi,

yes, wpDiscuz just uses the woff as it is supported by many browsers. Many browsers don't support the woff2:

More information you can find here:

Hope other browsers will support woff2 in the near future because they're faster
