    Hi Rod,

    I could notice the issue when I enable Smush CDN. However, on giving a closer look site loads fine, with Smush CDN when the "Under Construction plugin is disabled.

    Smush CDN to work fine requires the homepage to load fine, instead of coming soon page which is loading 503 header response. Seems like the conflict is more with Smush CDN, and the Under Contstruction plugin, and the homepage loads fine when I disable the mentioned "under Construction" plugin.

    However, I could notice the following error in the console, Smush CDN is enabled:

    Failed parsing 'srcset' attribute value since its 'w' descriptor is invalid.
    Dropped srcset candidate "<URL>"

    I'm checking with our developers to see whether there is any further improvements that could be done. Will keep you updated once I get further feedback regarding this from the developer asap.
