QuestionsCategory: ElementorIs ‘Internal Embedding’ in Elementor A Good Idea?

asked 5 months ago

I watched (last night) your latest video on short pixel adaptive images and decided to go with it as I hadn't optimized my images and although I always pre-cut my images to less than 50kb before uploading, GT Metrix was still downgrading me (and a 3.5sec avg load time is quite long).

When I downloaded the plugin I got a message telling me there was a clash with Elementor's CSS Print Method currently set as ‘external file' under elementor settings. The plugin advised I switch it to ‘internal embedding' so that it could function. However, the only text I can find on google about this suggests internal embedding is not a good idea.

For information, I have followed quite a few of your videos and so host my website with siteground and wordpress builder elementor – exactly the combo used in the video. I tried to buy shortpixel credits through your appsumo link but they've sold out. Before I buy them at full price, I wanted to check what effect ‘internal embedding' on my CSS Print File may have on my website?

You know, I wouldn't be surprised if they have resolved this requirement already. 
Over the last month, they have pushed out several updates specifically for Elementor compatibility.

this is still happening with the AI Short Pixel plugin. Not sure it is a good idea to use switch to internal embedding. I would also like to know.
