A bug in how an external css file was being incorrectly processed led me to dig into the asset caching functionality of the Semiologic Cache plugin.  The purpose of asset caching is to improve website performance by reducing the number of requests for "assets" (javascript files and css files) will also reducing the size of the asset that needs to be downloaded.

Semiologic Cache has always had asset caching support but this latest bug served as a catalyst for me to dig into it and improve how it works. Well it has paid off well.  On a few sites where I installed it I was rocking all As and high 90s in the webpagetest performance scores.  The asset caching improved assets from the Semiologic theme and plugins, as well as 3rd party plugins and WordPress itself .

Semiologic Cache Version 3.8 includes:

  • Revamp of css and javascript file concatenating. Now working correctly especially footer scripts
  • Fix bug in handling of external css files only starting with url of /example.com/file/….. (no http: or https:)
  • Initial support for css compression. Seeing 10-25% file size improvements.
  • Caches flushed on WP upgrade

The plugin is part for of the Semiologic Pro package.  Those of you with current subscriptions should see the update notification in your dashboard along side the other plugins updated as part of WordPress 3.9 release compatibility.


To help manage and administer your website both Google and Bing provide a free service to help their search engines understand your website.   You can submit your sitemap, set your preferred canonical domain (www vs. non-www), set your geographic targets,  get notified of crawling errors and a variety of similar tasks a webmaster would want to perform or know about.

To access this information, you need to login into Google's and Bing's Webmaster Tools and add your site.   Both services will require that you verify you own the site your trying to manage.  This is can be accomplished by adding a specific file to your site, setting up a domain record or adding a HTML <meta> tag to your page header.  With Semiologic's Script Manager the latter is easily accomplished.   You simply go to Settings in your WordPress Dashboard, select Scripts & Meta, enter the <meta name=……. /> line provider by the Webmaster Tools, save and then verify.   That's all there is to it.  Easy and painless site verification.

Of course Script Manager has all sorts of other uses such as entering javascript code, including external css and javascript files, and adding additional html meta data to your header or footer.  The plugin also has the ability to run javascript code against an OnLoad event.  Pretty useful stuff to modify your site without needing to edit theme files.

(Note: Google does provide a couple of additional verification methods using your Google Analytics code or Google's Tag Manager)

Answer by Dexter
Hi Salvador,

Yes, you can earn money by blogging through Adsense, ClickBank, Chitika and other affiliate and pay-per-click advertising but it really takes time and effort to generate dollars.

Since your skills are into writing and typing, you may try Odesk and Elance for you to earn enough money. Today, there are lots of companies and business owners prefer to outsource writers and typists. Check out the attached links.

Hope this helps. Goodluck! :)

It is most definitely fake. Just ignore it and don’t get your identity stolen. Just remember, if it seems too good to be true, 99.999999999999999999% of the time, it is.
