No Minify files = no style site (7 posts)

    I just noticed there are no styles at all in my site, so I went to empty cache to reupload minify files but there is none.

    I have 0 of 0 files, so I cant upload anything.

    As I was in admin mode all the time I did not see the error until someone told me. If I deactivate minify, the style comes back.

    The problem is that the style is not the latest one, so the style is not uploading.

    I already deleted the style from the cdn, purge, re upload and the same. The updated style is not going up.

    How can I fix this ?

    Thanks.

    Still looking into this, if I activate minify, there are no files to upload. Any advice is really appreciated.

    I don't know if this applies, but see my post about automatic minifying errors:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-w3-total-cache-important-parsing-found-with-automatic-minify
    (btw, I meant to say *Important* parsing error found with automatic minify)
    In the minifying process, incorrect .js code was generated. You'll see what I mean in my post. Good luck!

    For certain users, W3TC refuses to add the "gzip" extension to minified js and css files. For example W3TC outputs a file named "styles.css." (note the . at the end) instead of "styles.css.gzip". Since certain browsers (notably IE) can't read these compressed files without the "gzip" extension at the end, websites are unstyled and without javascript functionality.

    For some reason this problem does not affect all users so YMMV but it has been around since about 9.1.X. I have a feeling this is a server related issue (different versions of PHP, module access, etc).

    Here's a hack fix although I don't recommend it since you will likely have to redo it with every update. I recommend disabling minify instead: http://kenntwas.de/2011/tips/tools-allgemein/english-version-wordpress-get-w3tc-0-9-2-1-running-with-minify-and-gzip-compression/

    Here's a short history of the W3TC minify GZIP bug:

    Same here, styles are gone when Minify is enabled in W3TC.

    Workaround: Disable Minify in W3TC and install WP Minify instead. This works.

    I will continue working on minify, it's the most challenging feature to keep working because all other minify plugins are missing core functionality that helps people, so I appreciate your patience.
