Broke things
By ,

Nice thought and sorely needed. However, all images and animations went and it caused a fatal error.

It only sped my site up by 1 point in the speed tests so I can live with not having it.

Shame as its a great idea. Unfortunately with so many different themes and different server, one size can't fit all.

Great plugin done right all the way
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is one of those plugins that makes a developer smile. Just enough options to handle many scenarios but not so many as to confuse. This is a must have for SEO and page speed freaks. It does a much better job, IMO, than Better WordPress Minify and WP-HTML-Compression combined, and all from one lightweight plugin.

Futtta also gives insightful, timely support, which is why this gets 5 stars all day.

Great results on a back-end bloated, bogged-down, site.
By , for WP 3.8.1

I am not tech code knowledgeable. I was terrified to try this plugin.

I was worried about crazy irreparable damage: the plugin can be undone by uninstalling and emptying the cache. (I don't know how to "empty the cache" - except in my browser). Seems straight forward and easy.

I was anticipating a GUI with a multitude of options that I would not understand : there are 4 simple options offered. And an "Advanced Options" screen I never even looked at.

I use and try out far too many plugins - but it all gets me what I want ultimately. This leads to a clogged, slowing, unstable site. Now my site screams again. Stellar!

No question that this plugin made a huge impact on my site's performance.

Thank you for a powerful plugin, simple interface and attention to support questions - which is where I got the confidence to try it out.

GREAT

Thank you it works great!

Maybe you can clarify how to deal with caching best way.
Can site function good without any caching plugin,
or what simple caching plugin goes best with Autoptimize ?

Best Minify Plugin Ever
By , for WP 3.8.1

I feel like I have tried all of them that are available, every single one ended up breaking my site in errors. Either the CSS got messed up, or JavaScripts stopped functioning, which might have been user error... but still!

Enter Autoptimize, I've completely minified my site and the developer doesn't want anything for it, no pro version, just free code :)

Thank you Frank! I hope you make more plug-ins!
I'm definitely a fan!

Works and is easy to use.

Supercharge your site with this plugin. Easy to use.
I'm using it with woocommerce. This plugin in conjunction with wp fast cache loads my site with 30 plugins in only 2 seconds, according to gt metrix.
Do yourself a favor and install it today

Awesome
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin is awesome and behaves smartly.
It takes some time to make sure it's working with your website - especially on JS files
but after that it rolls. So it's a very iterative process

Make sure to check the autoptimize cache directory, otherwise you can end up with thousands of files (some JS tweaking required)

It really speeds up your website and compress more files than BWP Minify

Finally futtta, the plugin author provides amazing and comprehensive support!
