    So yeah, I've noticed my site has been running a little slower then usual and after asking my host for some advice they asked me the questions below. I have no idea, so I'm asking here. :)

    1) Force XF to use static files for CSS instead css.php
    2) Combine javascript
    3) Remove versioning from static files like this: /community/css.phpcss=editor_ui,moderator_bar,panel_scroller&style=6&dir=LTR&d=1358535224

    Any info is appreciated, thanks in advance!

    It sounds like they have just run Google PageSpeed test against your site.

    If you run google PageSpeed (dowload here), for each of the options they give you some advice.

    A few more performance tools are mentioned here

    Some of the most common / favorites:
    The easiest option you can do that they have mentioned is removing the versioning (I don't agree that files should be versioned for security, but if they are not, when you upgrade, unless the browser cache is cleared, user may still be using an old version of the static file). But that will require changes to the core files (not recomeded if you are planing to upgrade)

    I mentioned combing JavaScript and CSS would be an issue before I first joined (I'm an insane performance fanatic)
    XenForo Dev (Mike) gave some pretty good answers, see here:

    (And they now make better use of sprites)
