Install CDN enabler
Next, go to your WordPress website dashboard – on the plugins tab.
Install CDN enabler. GO to the plugin settings.
Copy and paste in the Site’s Edge address to the CDN URL field.
Make sure you added the correct protocol – HTTP or HTTPS.
Ignore the KeyCDN fields as we are not using them. Save changes.

Let’s check our site if the CDN is working.
Right-click and inspect our website shortcode.
As you can see, the site’s edge address from StackPath is now used on the site.
Broken Styling After Activation
If your website appears to have a broken styling after you’ve activated the CDN, it could be a plugin error. Some plugin scripts might not be compatible being served from the CDN server.
I recommend that you exclude your plugins folder.
On the exclusions field, add a comma and then plugins and hit save.
