    As per the Forum Welcome, please post your own topic.

    I am using 0.9.3 and all of the options you list are not available. What version are you using?

    I don't get any options about where to place the JS on the page, it only displays before </head> and the other options are JS, async and defer.

    Generally when I load JS files it usually works best if you use the non-blocking JS method. That way the page can continue to load and onload and oncomplete work correctly for JS that's embedded on the page.

    @almooj-craig: These options appear when you change from auto to manual in

    General Settings -> Minify -> Minify Mode

    @VenturaVan: Some general info about blocking vs non-blocking scripts is here.

    That article didn't provide enough info for me to resolve minification issues, or fully explain all those settings, but it's a start.

    Thanks for the explanation. I have always just used the auto mode, so I didn't spot those other options.

    I should also mention that when you use the non-blocking JS method that you might need to rewrite some of the other plugins js because the jquery will get loaded after any js that's in the page.
