  • Do you have a timeline for the Critical CSS feature that I’ve seen mentioned last January across a number of the LiteSpeed channels?

  • Hello,

    There is option in WordPress admin -> Litespeed cache -> Settings -> Tuning -> Critical CSS Rules (make sure that you are using advanced view to see the tuning tab).

    I’ve very aware of that, that is for me to input Critical CSS into. That for one is very limited. The feature is not automatically generated like the title says.

    This has been discussed on LiteSpeed forums and Slack before. LiteSpeed have said it’s in the development plan. Now i’m curious of the timeframe and what features this will have.

    It really needs to be advanced enough to crawl every page generate critical CSS for each page, analyses this CSS into page types if multiple pages have matching critical CSS then you can deliver the same critical CSS from storage “this prevents saving multiple copies of the same css in the database, which would be a problem on very large sites with many pages”. If a page has different Critical CSS this will need to be stored separately in the database. You could also merge critical CSS if it’s within a % of the other critical CSS with only a few extra lines of CSS.

    I already have such a system created in NodeJS for internal use but it would be great for this to be built into LiteSpeed Cache plugin, many of the other caching plugins already do this.

    Right?! I LOVE my LSWS & LSC. Hell, LSC is one of the Best IDEAS, much less implementations, for a Site Speed Op3imization plugin anywhere! W3TC can suck my balls (even though it is pretty darn bad ass for those who want to spend countless hours Learning what everything is BEFORE you wisely choose the correct settings ((or combination thereof, I should say)).

    Everyone knows WP-Rocket is by far the “easiest” ((That’s not true at all … neither True Nor Factual)) & guess what it does as of the last major version release? Yup, that’s right … automatic generation AND Injection of CPCSS.

    Now, I like Jonas Ohlsson Aden as much as anyone, he’s Genuinely cool ass dude who built a dope ass service … services, actually… Premium & Free. I was a premium customer who was happy with Every penny I spent with him & Hammer to (((Here is where it gets … inconvenient… COMBINE the web service with the Other plugin to combine it with Other Other plugins … just to get a SINGLE CPCSS, which doesn’t account for more than that One page from which it was taken and others like it, just not totally different post/post/customposttypes.

    so yeah, I’m with Joe.

    I … I think … I love you??!!??

    That’s some really great news! Lisa should write about CP-CSS & what things will be like after we have it in LSC! I always look forward to seeing her new posts. Great stuff.

    Thank YOU, Litespeed, keep up all that #KickAss, eh?
