Description (last modified by sabernhardt)

I have wasted an entire day trying to figure out why my Open Sans styles were not applying. This is counterproductive/suboptimal.

As it turns out, Open Sans was packed in WP back in 2014, which is fine by me. More info: #28478

However it is not immediately obvious one needs to wp_deregister_style('open-sans'); before he can register his own style.

Please, consider making an exception and make wp_register_style() automatically wp_deregister_style(X) if X equals 'open-sans'. Otherwise consider other courses of action that may prevent others from incurring in the same problem I did.

Hi and welcome to WordPress Core Trac!

When [37361] removed Open Sans from the admin, the script loader continued to register the 'open-sans' handle for any themes or plugins already using the stylesheet (ticket:36753#comment:6).

Directory searches found plugins and themes referring to an 'open-sans' style. Some of them enqueue/print the old Core stylesheet, some deregister it, and some make their own stylesheet.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
