Hummingbird Gzip minify not working

Have couple of issues to look regarding the plugin:

1) Hummingbirds Gzip compression is working partially, only text/html appears disabled, rest is working correctly.

2) Once Asset Optimziation is enabled under Hummingbird > Asset Optimzation. The files aren't getting minified on checking the source code. All the files doesnt get minified.

3) 3 images are still showing as not optimized under Performance Test in the plugin. Looking to optimze the remaining images.

Please check the chat notes for more info.

    Hi Eddy,

    Hope you're doing well.

    1) Hummingbirds Gzip compression is working partially, only text/html appears disabled, rest is working correctly.

    Hummingbird enables GZIP compression by adding the .htaccess rules that enable these, however, some hosts have these options predefined and don't allow the changes to be made via .httaccess rules, and this is usually the case when one rule is not working while others are.
    Please get in touch with your hosting provider and check with them if they are defining HTML compression from their end.

    2) Once Asset Optimziation is enabled under Hummingbird > Asset Optimzation. The files aren't getting minified on checking the source code. All the files doesnt get minified.

    From your staging site it seems that you're using a nulled version of the theme that's a year old, and nulled themes usually come with some unwanted code so I would suggest starting with getting a newest version of the theme from the developers before debugging anything further.
    Nulled themes can cause different kind of issues in both site functionality, and more importantly its security.

    3) 3 images are still showing as not optimized under Performance Test in the plugin. Looking to optimze the remaining images.

    First two images, logo_black.png and close_side_menu.png, are the images provided by your theme and are not accessible from the Media Library for Smush to optimize them from there.
    Even if you optimize those two they will be replaced with non-optimized versions when you update your theme, so it's best to get in touch with your theme developer and ask them to use optimize images in theme files.

    The last one (demo1-logo-light) is a strange one, it's some kind of a logo that's being loaded behind your logo, I'm not sure what's the actual use of this image?
    Report is shown because the image is 403x190 while the image holder is only 127x60.
    So even though the image is optimized, it's way larger then its holder and speed tests report that as an issue.
    If you do need this image then you should upload a smaller one to fit the holder and use that instead, or if the image is not used at all (since it's hidden below original logo) you should remove it from loading on that page.

    Best regards,
    Predrag
