[resolved] can't disable custom css (3 posts)

    The interface seems to hint that it's going to modify the theme's css for you, but instead, it generates a dynamic css file and links to it - whether you want to use it or not as long as jetpack is enabled.

    This is adding full seconds to my site's load time, which is absurd.
    echo it in the page or use a rewrite so it's at least cacheable.

    I want to use Jetpack, but if I can't disable the custom css module, it's worthless.

    Rest assured, this custom stylesheet is cached.
    However, you can always disable the Custom CSS module by going to the Jetpack menu, and clicking on "Learn More" in the Custom CSS module. A "Deactivate" button will appear, and you will be able to disable the module.

    it might be cached in the db, but it still affects the load time significantly - even after having loaded a few times, testing on pingdom showed an additional server wait time of nearly 1s.

    That's a relief, though, about being able to disable it. I had clicked on "learn more" before, but the "deactivate" button had eluded me. It's a bit counterintuitive.
