Extra performance by tuning wordpress theme files

All WordPress themes have own graphic and CSS style files. If you are using content delivery network (CDN) services for distributing static content you should edit theme files and set-up full paths to load static content from CDN not your local web server software.

Using this method you will speed up file delivery and offload some processing load – your site will perform faster and with less latency. Also, don’t forget to edit CSS and PHP files to set-up full paths – avoid doing redirects as it will decrease your blog performance and probably cause some heavy load when your site get’s in Digg or Yahoo! frontpage.
