Inconsistent GZIP via webpagetest.org (4 posts)

    My site is set up and, for me at least, serving text/html content using GZIP. However when I test the site on http://www.webpagetest.org it reports that while the page is gzipped neither the combined JS or CSS files are. Link to report:


    And from another location:

    I'm not sure if it's a problem with their test, but I'm worried that my set up is somehow not optimising content for all users.

    Any help/thoughts much appreciated.

    It is referring to other objects in your page which are not compressed.

    Thanks for the reply, but the problem is that I have gzip ON for HTML, CSS and JS.

    All non-cached pages are rendered with gzipped components (js/css), but the page cache is storing pages without gzipped components. The pages themselves are served with gzip.

    When the page cache rebuilds itself automatically it always does so without gzipped JS/CSS.

    The problem is that W3TC is not building the gzipped page cache correctly.

    Any help appreciated.

    CSS/JS compression is handled by your browser cache settings. If you're having issues with HTML not being compressed for pages W3TC handles please submit a bug submission form from the support tab of the plugin.
