Does CDN work with vbulletin?

I was just recently told that my site could use some optimization.

I now started looking into a CDN for the site.

If i got cdn from http://www.maxcdn.com/ , would that work with vbulletin or would it cause issues?

I am willing try anything to make my forum speed increase.

All it does in theory is deliver static content based on the users location, hoping it is closer.

The only optimization work you need is image compression. A CDN won't do that.

Here's your performance: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140827_XR_1D9/

Load items 20-24 are killing you. Example:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It can be almost 1mb smaller and not lose any visible quality: Optimize images


This test is only valid if that's your site in your signature there.


Who told you you need optimization? Someone who is selling such services? They are either woefully uninformed, or straight up lying to you.

Fix the bloated images and you're set.

If your site is optimized you don't really need a CDN. If your site is not optimized, a CDN really doesn't do squat for you.

Sweet. Nice job.

He doesn't need a CDN, he needs to take 4mb off his page load by optimizing those massive images.

It most certainly should shave some time off the load time.

If you do all of them as the link I gave you does for you, I predict we're talking seconds, not milliseconds.

Probably at least four seconds.

Yes and for each image, click "analyze jpeg" then select the smallest one out of the three that will come up.

Example:

Call #20 Optimized


Do this for each one you see in the first link.
