    This is an excellent plugin and has increased my page load speed. However, Yview does not recognise Shift8 as a CDN provider as yet! Hence only 4 stars at the moment. Hopefully, this will change very soon. If Yview recognises Shift8 CDN my evaluation of this plugin will go from 4 to 5 stars immediately… Definitely a must plugin to have and so easy to set up, great work!

    Thank you for the positive words! I’m happy that you see a positive difference with your site.

    I’m not sure I’m familiar with this “yview” , can you give me more information on this? Is this a speed testing service?

    Sorry, I meant Yslow which is a yahoo score based on Yahoo’s rules for high-performance websites. YSlow then scores the site against these 23 rules and gives an overall score based on the average. On gtmetrix my page speed is 95% but Yslow is only 78% because it doesn’t recognise Shift8 as a CDN Service. Hope this helps.

    Ah thanks for clarifying.

    The requirements for what Yslow considers a CDN might need to be investigated. But the static assets being offloaded to an external URL should be enough, unless Yslow maintains its own list of known CDNs and we are simply just too new for them to flag as such.

    That said ,the speed improvement beyond this is obviously unaffected. If we need to manually submit ourselves to Yslow to be considered an official CDN, I will look into this and see what needs to happen.

    Thanks again
