Gzip compression

#1

When checking my site for gzip compression on gtmetrix.com, I noticed that the desktop version is enabled. After the running the mobile version, its not enabled. Is there something i need to do to get the gzip enabled on the mobile version. Thanks

It may depend on the request headers. Maybe they don’t report that compression is supported. Can you post the page url in question?

This is the mobile version: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/www.zippyjot.com/EoFHWfYe

This the desktop version. You’ll notice this is where its showing gzip is enabled.

All’s good. It’s using Brotli compression. Noted as only “br”.

Some info: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/Content-Encoding#Directives
More info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brotli

But GTM probably doesn’t know what content-encoding: br is, as it’s relatively new tech.
