It appears that whenever we we get a bad speed score, the Combine CSS/JS is either a D or a C. However, whenever we get a good speed score, we get a B or A in that same category.
We get A’s in all other categories and we DO have a CDN although the speed tests does not recognize it in the score.
Our page speed would be very good but for the CSS/JS compress problems.
We have tried an assortment of compressors/combiners. We have received mixed and inconsistent results and no compressor seems to work.
When we tried finalizer, every time we would do a test and get a C, our speed would be slow and jomcomment error would appear in the CSS/JS results. In fact, we disabled jomcomment and the site went white with no content. WE put jomcomment back on and the site reappeared.
We tried JA Compress since our template is also Joomla Art.
Nope, still high speeds and errors with CSS/JS but great scores for the other categories.
So, do any compressor work? With joomla?
The very last test is:
The errors are:
Combine static CSS and JS files: 50/100

P.S. we even excluded those programs such as ajax, jom comment from the JA Compress and received the exact same results.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
