  • Site - site specific settings set on Page Designs item, field Styles/Scripts optimizing enabled (section: Assets Optimization)

  • Theme - theme specific settings set on a theme item, field Mode (section: Theme)
    • available options: On, Off, Inherit from System, Inherit from Site
  • Result - outcome of configuration set. YES indicates assets will be processed.
