Thanks coop, I will try that
however if any of you've been checking my progress this last weekend you will note that everything is now uncompressed again, and scores are down accordingly - the CDN (Parallel downloading thing) is not active. This is because of unrelated (really stupid!) error on my behalf like going to update/delete one module and deleting them all, meant to backup copy them all first before only deleting/updating the Forum (stupid stupid Suzy!)
it is now rebuilt, just to show that every cloud does have a silver lining; it turns out that because of the work I did re-factoring the CSS for this post I was quickly able to update it for the modules that had changed, i.e. those that I didn't want to update
the remaining errors are non-CSS related but mean I'll need time to get back that 93 score as I have a module clash now and need to work with the files uncombined until I work through the issues.. did I tell you I was stupid.. I will try the compressor when I get back to only JS left to tidy up
the other good news about this "forced update" is that I now know which of the core modules are modified namely the Rich Text Editor and the User Login Bar (you do forget over time if you've changed something in earlier versions, I only change something I've no intention of updating or need non-tech users mean RT Editor is a requirement) - so I have separated them even further, and took copies as soon as they were reconfigured - .. unfortunately the "Fake" CDN module is one of them, while I had it working before it to ease the parallel downloading issue it no longer works with my updated image cacher, so I presume there some trade off there, and with all the images being DataURI's I'm not sure if it will needed any more anyway.. we'll see what happens when I finish the Forum and re-compress
and another good thing.. the server where this site is hosted needs to become a multisite install for another related project so it would have required a bit of shuffling around anyway, so that's done now too..
seems fate intended me to "get familiar" with the inner working of the site for more reason than one ;)
Anyway I just wanted to let you know in case anyone's looking at the site and thinking "what's she on!" .. I will recombine and minimise all files again as soon as I've re-themed/optimised the Forum.. which was the only thing I had left to do anyway!
