We added the possibility, only for selected users, to increase the time before WordPress goes offline (default is 15 minutes). If you have special development needs just drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to creating and distribute a static copy of your site and hosts your WordPress installation, HardyPress is able to instruct the CDN servers about 301/302 redirects so they will set correct response-headers. It is therefore important to understand how redirects are detected on your WordPress site and propagated to the static version. We just added a specific doc page to describe the whole process.
We’ve recently deployed a huge update to our backend platform and now we have brand new engine that will speed-up your deploy process up to 50%… and we are working to reduce it even more. This update will also allow us to work on some cool new features and improvements in 2018, so… stay tuned!
You can now set different max-age headers for different types of files. This will allows your users to always have fresh content, continuing to leverage browser cache for static resources such as css, js, images, fonts, etc.
You can now download the static generated website as a tarball archive to use it as your wishes. On this archive you will also find a nice file named s3_website.yml that you can use to publish the static site to your own S3 bucket with the s3_website gem preserving redirects and content-type headers.
