Read: 6 mins. If you care about optimizing your website's performance to improve its search engine ranking, one of the things to evaluate is the number or size of fonts in use. The Avada Theme used by this site is wonderful but also very bloated. I went to create a Custom Icon Font with just the images the site needs to speed up the time it takes to load this site. However, I unexpectedly ran into an issue of the icons disappearing from the Classic Editor (TinyMCE) toolbar. This post details the problem and the workaround I implemented.
