Load Google fonts using https

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
At present any Google fonts loaded via the template are loaded using http which means that on https enabled sites you get the mixed content warning in Chrome.

Is it possible for you to switch to loading Google Fonts via https instead?

we use :
<link href=" // rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

none word about http !
but sure, we have to update this section of code according to new rules.

Hi Paul

I'm actually not sure now if it was the Helix template loading them as I disabled them from the Template Style config but that line was still showing up. Could have been caching, I suppose.

In the end I just disabled the Typo settings in the template style and adding the call to the fonts over https myself in the custom.css file but it's useful to know which files i should edit, thanks.

Yes, you have to :
1) Disable all google fonts switchers
2) Clear CMS cache as well

We have a problem where the fonts aren't showing up as we set them in SP PB (v3.03) with Helix3 (v2.4).
Finally I had to change line 954 from file plugins\system\core\helix3.php :
$doc->addStylesheet('//' . $output);
to :
$doc->addStylesheet('' . $output);
Ofcourse, when updating the template this will be overwritten...
Is there any solution ?
Kind regards,
