[tip] Reduce WordPress Bandwidth Usage! (1 post)

    I was going through my logs a while back, and noticed that a large proportion of my bandwidth is taken up by a few WordPress files, namely prototype.js and effects.js.

    I have been serving these files and a few others using GZip compression in PHP and have noticed a huge decrease in my bandwidth. Page load times are also decreased.

    If anybody is interested in adding GZip compression to javascript files, css, html, php, or an other text file I have written a short tutorial on my site: http://lonewolf-online.net/computers/knowledgebase/php_reduce-wordpress-bandwidth-usage/

    I hope this can be of use to others as well!

    Regards

    Tim
