  • Why does WordPress require so many separate stylesheets and JavaScript files? I understand that it is modular and different pages might require different stylesheets, but can’t they be merged before transmission from the server?

    I know some plugins do this, but only to a small extent. They always miss half or more of the stylesheets that get sent as individual files thereby increasing the number of requests per page view.

    If there wasn’t a limitation within WordPress I assume plugins would be successful in merging static resources. Anyone know what the problem is?
