Hummingbird Minification Recommendations

I'm receiving a poor score in "'Remove render blocking resources" with the benchmark message: "Your page has 8 blocking script resources and 17 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page."
Unfortunately, I can't determine which JS file or CSS file to combine or defer as the file names do not make any sense. (see screenshot). Can you please assist?

    Hi Christina Soliday,

    Hope all is well :slight_smile:

    The files you are seeing are the Hummingbird created files since you're using Combine option on number of your files.

    However all the files still have their original loading location and that's what's causing this many files and the report to load them after the content.
    Try moving as many files as possible to load from footer, without breaking any site functionality, and that should improve your score.

    So try going to Hummingbird > Minification panel and tweak Move to Footer option for your files, it's the third column in Advanced minification view.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Best regards,
