I was just looking at your video on composite files and minification
I can see that CSS and JS files can be both minified and set to create composite files, I assume the later means the JS files and CSS files are concatenated into two separate files to reduce the number of file for download.
But under the server settings on the performance tab it says:
"Important note regarding minification settings.
If minification settings are changed when composite files are enabled, you must first save the minification settings by clicking Save and then increment the version number. This will issue new composite files using the new minification settings."
I assume I can initially enable composite files as well as enabling CSS and JS minification and then click 'save'.
If I ever wanted to switch minification off and leave composite files enabled, I'd need to:
o Disable 'Minify CSS' and/or 'Minify JS'
o Hit Save
o Click the 'Increment Version' button whilst leaving
I assume I would need to repeat this procedure if the CSS or JS is changed?
Though, I can't imagine needing changing those files myself.
Would this need to be done if the site was upgraded to a later DNN version?
Is it possible and if so would it be good practice to minify and composite a custom module's JS and CSS files in the same way?
For example by putting those files in a subdirectory under DNN's JS and CSS files (where ever they may be).
