i am pretty new to wordpress plugin programming and i am facing a frustrating problem:
WordPress does somehow compress the html output – it cuts linebreaks and unnessary whitespaces. thats fine so far – but it also removes some meta tags, like “description” and “keywords” . i added them directly in the themes header.php and also tried to add them via various plugins – but both dont work (wp_head() is fired in the header).
i cant explain this behaviour and cant find any documentation on this. also strange: yesterday this compression was not active and all worked fine. maybe its kind of caching system feature? but as far as i understood, caching is deactivated by default.
I am talking about this blog: http://hjacob.com/blog/
Active Plugins: Twitter Widget, iwPhone, SyntaxHighlighter
the problem also occurs when all plugins are deactivated.
Oh, i just realized that the problem is caused by my ISP – i am surfing via an UMTS connection (“surf stick”) and there seems to be a proxy which does the described compressions – probably in order to reduce load.
thanks for reading anyway 🙂
