    Hi All,

    I'm having a similar problem to others it seems yet I've not managed to locate the solution in the forum here.

    I've attempted to smush all my images, however I've got the site in a different domain to the site domain.

    Is there anyway around making smush it able to locate the images?

    Hi @Craig

    Are the images in the media library? They have to be in the media library for WP Smush.it to smush them.

    As replied elsewhere in these forum threads the Smush.it plugin does a check that the image URL provided from WordPress is within the same exact domain as the site home URL. If like many others you host your images via a sub-domain like http://images.mysite.com or even use a remote Content Delivery Network (CDN) then Smush.it will not work well for you.

    A solution is to roll back to version 1.6.5.
