    Google insight has flagged the stylesheet CSS @ https://cdn.jotfor.ms/css/styles/nova.css

    Asked by jarmerson on May 21, 2016 at 05:29 PM

    Google speed insights has flagged this stylesheet for lack of compression and suggests it be minified. How can this be accomplished?

    You can access the stylesheet source code of the form if you will publish the form using the full source code.

    User guide: How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    Is this what you wanted to do?

    Please let us know how we can be of further assistance.

    I understand the full source code option, however it is preferred that I use a script as I do for most of our forms. Specifically, how can we have this resource minified - it would either have to be from your end or providing an alternative to import excluding jotform reference.

    You can also import CSS from an external URL into the form using the Form Designer

    If I understand correctly, you wanted a minified version of the CSS resource  https://cdn.jotfor.ms/css/styles/nova.css ?

    Then, you can create a minified version from it and then import it to the from from an external CSS.

    As for referencing another resource CSS, I don't think it is possible if you will not use the form source code. 

    Hope this is clearer. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Hi Jonathan

    I know this is a bit of a late question in the thread, but do you mean copy the CSS in the Form Designer, minify it, and then paste it back?

    Is it possible to do something similar with the HTML?
