1) I the docs https://ghost.org/docs/concepts/config/#configuration-options, I see we can configure the image compression.
My question: As I have a big custom theme, is Ghost compress assets that are in the theme itself? I have about 45MB of pictures, and I am not sure Ghost compresses those as well.
2) On the other hand, on https://tools.pingdom.com/ we have a terrible score on the gzip side.
Suggestion: Compress components with gzip
Description: Decreasing the number of components on a page reduces the number of HTTP requests required to render the page, resulting in faster page loads. Some ways to reduce the number of components include: combine files, combine multiple scripts into one script, combine multiple CSS files into one style sheet, and use CSS Sprites and image maps.
Question: Is this related to the size of my images?
Maybe it has nothing to do. I feel it’s usually something the server is managing.
What could make my theme not gzip friendly?
Thanks for everything!
