just wondering....
playing around with the 2.1rc3 template and noticed that there's a ton of minified_BLABLA.css files

seems a bit excessive to me

download from the github but those files aren't in the download, so they were created afterwards? is that something to do with the minify setting in admin or did I screw something up (most likely  :laugh: )


2.1 uses a lot of .js.   Minimizing .js saves quite a lot of bandwidth.  Fortunately, there are some good auto-minimizing apps out there.  2.1 uses such an auto-minimizer.  So yes, most are dynamically built.

You can disable the auto-minimization if needed, e.g., when debugging .js., under Admin | Configuration | Features and Options | General.

Address the process rather than the outcome.  Then, the outcome becomes more likely.   - Fripp
