CDN and enable Scripts and images to be served externally (7 posts)

    Allow for variables to be set in admin to enable CDN usage for video or images.

    On a similar thread, why not allow other images and scripts to be loaded from a different domain to increase the number of requests allowed. A subdomain (for example) for images, one for scripts (CSS and JS) and the main content can increase requests from 2 to 6.

    CDN use is a big idea. At the moment I do this but I have to update core every time a new version of WP is released.

  2. Plugins are your friend: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cdn-tools/ for example.

    Or any of these may help: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tags/cdn

    Remember! Never update core unless it's a bug! :) It'll save you grey hairs!

    That's what I mean, this would be a great addition to core, rather than plugin based.

    I don't use this plugin anymore, I had too many problems with it.

    I have my document of changes to core for my setup, its not a problem when there's an update. It would just be nice to not have to do it.

    even adding provision for subdomain loading would be awesome. this plugin is 100% CDN based.

  5. That wouldn't work for everyone, though. Sometimes you want to run WP in a closed environment (a company's internal blog) or on your own computer while testing on an airplane.

    I'd say you should write a plugin to do what you want :) A lot of people would probably agree with you and love it.

    all internal blogs and even on mamp, or apache local can use subdomains...

    but yeah. I dont think the solution is a plugin.

    You can find this functionality in more in W3 Total Cache: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/w3-total-cache/
