In the EU leaking the visitors’ IP addresses to Google Fonts has questionable legality, and in some places it is now flat out illegal. This of course will not apply only to Google Fonts, but all CDNs. If I ensure I have “Use a CDN for Libraries” unselected on Export Settings, I expect that the site Published to Bootstrap Studio Sites would respect it and not expose visitors to leaks of personal information to 3rd parties.
I don’t see the bug. What export settings are being ignored?
If you’re using Google fonts, in Settings > Export Settings make sure Download Google Fonts IS selected.
If you’re really worried, I’d say export your website project first to a local folder and then examine the HTML to ensure there are no links to external CDNs before you publish to BSS’s servers.
I used these Export settings:
Using just the “Getting Started” template and publishing it, it loads Bootstrap CSS & JS, and jQuery from
I’ve noticed before that the export settings are ignored with publish.
This is a site of mine exported:
The same site published to the bss server with exactly the same settings (about 30 seconds later)
I think publishing to your own server follows the export settings, but not to the bss server.
I must admit, I have given up with the publish option and set up scripts to export and automatically upload to my servers.
Okay, this must be a bug unique to publishing to the BSS included hosting. I’ve never seen this when exporting websites that I upload to my paid hosting.
I saw the hosting included in the price, and confirmed the settings said they supported disabling CDN, and I rely on both of these for the product to make sense to the use-case I had in mind.
The devs typically don’t monitor the forum on weekends, but you can submit this via the bug report page and they’ll see it next week and likely respond to you.
Personally I use paid hosting because I want that level of security and discreet control over my websites, but there are some very inexpensive (and even free) hosting alternatives out there that should allow you to avoid using CDNs.
