[Plugin: W3 Total Cache] Gzip and Expire Headers With Amazon CloudFront
First of all: I’m really blown away by this plugin. It’s like having several great plugins all in one. And so far it works great on multiple sites.
My only problem — and it’s not so much a problem as a last detail to be refined — is that after installing and configuring W3 Total Cache I *almost* receive straight As from YSlow.. except for an E in “compress components for gzip” and and F for “Add Expires headers.”
After a little research, it appears that this has something to do with using Amazon CloudFront for my CDN. I don’t know how to address the “Add Expires headers” bit, but I found this guide for enabling gzip for Amazon Content:
But I’d rather have this all managed by W3 Total Cache.
So my question is: Are you planning on addressing the issues of gzip and entity tags with Amazon CloudFront anytime soon? I would assume it’s already in your road map, I’m just wondering if I should attempt the above linked process for enabling gzip on my sites or wait for an upcoming update of W3 Total Cache.
Also, please correct me if I’ve misunderstood anything here (which is quite possible).
Thank you again for this awesome plugin.
