Support » Plugin: Jetpack by WordPress.com » What is jetpack using skimlinks for?
3 years, 5 months ago
during routine speed tests, I discovered skimlinks scripts are loading. By process of elimination, i discovered jetpack is the culprit.
Why? What exactly is jetpack doing to my site with skimlinks?
I also just noticed this too…
With Jetpack Comments enabled and running the URL through Google Pagespeed, under ‘Leverage browser caching’ I see:
http://s.skimresources.com/js/%5Brandomnumberhere%5D.skimlinks.js (expiration not specified)
(not sure if the [randomnumberhere] is unique to me so I’ve editted it above)
If I temporarily disable the Comments part of Jetpack that .js line doesn’t occur
Thanks both for the report.
This script was meant to be loaded on WordPress.com sites only, but made its way into the Jetpack Comment form iFrame by mistake. We’ve fixed the bug as soon as we realized our mistake a few days ago.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
thanks Jeremy 🙂
