Boost template - where do I compress/minify css to load faster?

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Hey Paul,

Hope you are doing well. In some of your templates there is a way to easily compress css in the template manager, but I can't find it in the Boost template manager. I did find a way to compress the javascript which is great, but perhaps with the css I have to do something else? Or is it already compressed?
Site in question is: weddingpackagesnyc.com/
Thanks.

Hi Nya,

I'd add a tweaked htaccess file and see how it looks then

gtmetrix.com/reports/weddingpackagesnyc.com/xiGssFKY

You could trim the image file sizes but that is marginal

Cheers
Paul

Yeah, I am working on making the images smaller. My client has been loading huge image files. Google's report looks a little more dire than this one, haha. What do I tweak in the .htaccess file?
Thanks a million.
Love
Nya

Hi Nya,

docs.joomlabamboo.com/zen-grid-framework-4/advanced/htaccess

Some hosts have tweaked apache versions since this was posted so I would test and keep a backup of the original file

With Google some stuff I've found isn't possible unless you have mega bucks and a really fast server

If you have problems with the htaccess left us know

Rob is really good with site optimisation / server stuff
