- How do you generate the critical CSS
To generate the critical CSS we use the awesome “critical” npm module
by Addy Osmani. The Eliminate render-blocking CSS service takes care of generating
the critical CSS for all of your pages and different screen sizes, plus caching
and delivering the above the fold styling in an efficient way.
- What if the generated critical CSS isn’t working for my page
Sometimes the generated CSS is not covering 100% of your above the fold content.
That can be caused of lazy-loading elements, fading transitions, odd
device-sizes etc. To perfectly adjust the inlined CSS to your needs you can use
the “Additional CSS” text area on the settings page. All CSS you include there
will be added to the generated critical styles.
- How do I use the premium service
