So it would seem

So it would seem that smush is not working, either that or one of the cacheing or CDN things I have set up are showing old content but for example, I just made a new post and attached a gallery and upon checking, the images are still from 3-9MB and well over the 2000 max dimensions I set. The fact that the gallery displays the full images in the preview is another problem entirely but mainly I just don't understand why the images were not smushed in the operation I performed today.
