[resolved] fa_lite_ico.png crashes pagespeed (7 posts)

    hi!

    i like your plugin. it's great! but i've noticed that something in it slowes down my pageloadspeed massively.
    pingdom and firebug told me that it must be the "fa_lite_ico.png"...that hits two requests: first to cdnsmall.codeflavors.com (404!) second to codeflavors.com ...sometimes it takes about 300ms, somtimes up to 6s to load a 16x16 pic.
    how can i change that to be served from my own plugin-folders...i know it's there.
    and...: no, i do NOT want to remove it! it's your support and it should stay there. but i want it to be loaded more quickly....pleeeeaaase!

    best regards and many thanks for your work!

    oookay...it seems developers changed the mirror for this icon. ok: the new mirror is slightly faster then the one befor..but: now we have another more request and TWO redirects (with one of them slow as before) to serve that mini-icon.
    so...still the question: why cant we serve that icon from the own wp-plugin folder??

    Hi,

    Sorry for the trouble caused by this, it wasn't intended. Please try version 2.5.3, it also allows you to completely remove the credits from the front-end and the image is self hosted (see Settings page). Again, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this.
