I am getting 404 errors for 3 css files (its a wordpress site)
the path is showing as %E2%80%A6ent instead of wp-content.
However browsers are rendering the css correctly (but the site is very slow).
Is this something I need to fix? I’d probably have to go through all the top level files and some of the plugin files in a code editor to see what has mucked up the encoding from utf-8
Can you share the URL so we can take a look?
You have a css file which @imports the 3 broken CSS files. At the top of the file here:
Try to avoid using @import to load CSS files, as the browser will only load them after the original css file is fully downloaded. Which plugin did you use to create the /cache/scripts files?
I edited that file. It had an ellipsis there. Site speed improved! The plugin was wp-supercache. Will have to see whether the problem re-occurs when it generates another script/file
Super cache will just cache the html page output, so it will be the minify plugin causing the issue. There’s still one broken link inside of that file, the 2nd @import. I would ditch the plugin and fully clear super cache, as it’s very likely the files would get flushed by the plugin in the future.
Edit I added:
Header set Connection keep-alive
as the 2nd line in htacess but it didn’t work. Is their another line needed to actvate an apache module to do this, or do I need to check with the hosting company?
