Blue Hat CDN
[resolved] Poor multisite support (6 posts)

    I would like to use Blue Hat CDN instead of W3TC for my Rackspace Cloud Files account. But I'm having a big problem with Multisite.

    While the plugin seems to function on Multisite, it doesn't work very well. Instead of intelligently selecting only the current subsite's media to upload to the CDN, Blue Hat CDN blindly uploads everything, including media from the other subsites.

    On the official website, it says:

    Single Site, or Multi-Site Compatible
    Works with WordPress in single or multi-site/networked setup, where each individual site can have its own Blue Hat Turbo settings.

    Does that mean the pro version fixes this problem? Or is the feature exactly the same?

    I really shouldn't have to add exclusions to every subsite to exclude every other subsite from the upload. Blue Hat CDN should just work.

    I tried the free Pro version and it has the same problem.

    Instead of filtering to just the current site's media folder, Blue Hat CDN is getting /wp-content/blogs.dir/1/, /wp-content/blogs.dir/2/, /wp-content/blogs.dir/3/, etc.

    This would almost be fine if Blue Hat CDN let me choose the CDN container. But instead, Blue Hat CDN makes its own container for each subsite, and then dumps all of the other subsites' assets into each subsites' CDN container.

    This wastes a lot of transfer time.

    This wastes a lot of CDN storage space.

    This wastes a lot of money as Blue Hat CDN is forcing me to upload and store things it should intelligently filter out.

    Was this fixed in the 1.6 update?
