    Just upgraded to 2.11.1. I can see the testimonials being output in the source code of my website, but simply aren't displaying. What am I missing here?

    Thx

    Can you clear your browser cache to reset the CSS file?

    See FAQ 75.

    OK, figured it out. I am using the CDN settings in WP Super Cache. The URL for the CSS file is being rewritten from

    http://www.shiptrackaddin.com/wp-content/plugins/testimonials-widget/testimonials-widget.css

    to

    http://cdn.shiptrackaddin.com/wp-content/plugins/testimonials-widget/testimonials-widget.css

    The 'cdn.' is actually redirecting the request to Cloudfront. I verified that the CSS file is available, so I'm not clear what is happening. When I turn off the CDN, the testimonials come back.

    Would the different path affect your plugin?

    Is the CDN CSS the latest?

    No. CSS files are set with a far future expires date, which Cloudfront is honoring. Also, I was using a custom plugin that strips query parameters from scripts and styles, so file versioning would not bust the cache.

    I sent a purge request to Cloudfront for that CSS file, but stopping the plugin from stripping query parameters seems to be what fixed this issue. I was able to turn the CDN feature of WPSC back on. Thanks for your help with this.

    I'm glad you were able to figure this out. I've run into similar issues regarding CDNs before. However, it passed by me on this round.
