[resolved] No more separate CDN's for JS/CSS/Images? (4 posts)

    Is there any way to add this functionality back? We should be able to load them all from different subdomains to avoid max simultaneous request limits.

    Hi Jetlej;
    Although I understand you miss that functionality, it got removed because I consider it to be non-core functionality of the plugin and because I needed to simplify both the code & the backend UI.

    The good thing off course is that by aggregating CSS & JS, the amount of requests will go down substantially, with by default 1 JS and 3 CSS (media all, screen and print) files remaining. So moving those 4 to one and the same cookie-less domain (http://autoptimized.yoursite.com/) will allow you stay below the limit of 6 which is what most modern browsers seem to have as maximum simultaneous connections?

    hope this helps,

    Hey Frank,

    Ah yes that make sense for CSS and JS! But what about images? The old version let me re-write those URL's too and often times that puts me over 6 requests.

    That indeed is not possible with Autoptimize any more (except for background images in CSS), but there other plugins that do a much better job at that. I use WP Super Cache for page caching and that one has great CDN-support for example.
