vBulletin with Replacement Variable: StackPath CDN Setup Guide

This tutorial assumes you have already created a site.

example.test.stackpathdns.com is an example domain, which you should replace with the one you were provided with when site was created.

Before you begin, we highly recommend you test the performance of your site using Google Page Speed or Pingdom Tools. You can test your site now and after setting up the plugin for a before and after performance comparison.

Your vBulletin is now fully using the StackPath SecureCDN.

At this time, you should perform another speed test by using Google Page Speed and Pingdom Tools.
Compare the before and after tests and note that it can take one to seven days for your site to reflect the performance improvements of a CDN. Both of these test sites also will give you SEO recommendations that you can follow.
