Pretty good
By , for WP 3.7.1

The plugin works as expected, but there are a few issues:

1. A warning is generated that is_feed is called incorrectly. This is only with debug mode on, and doesn't break anything, but hopefully will be fixed in the next update. This is the only plugin (out of 13) which is giving any sort of warnings/notices.

2. The script tries to include off-site resources. But it fails, and breaks the entire css/js file causing the page to look like there is no stylesheet. You have to manually exclude these for the plugin to work. Why is there no error checking before a script is included? Can't a script be ignored if it fails to be combined & minified? I would love a checkbox to ignore third-party hosted resources

Works great, shaved 2 seconds off my load time

Works great, shaved 2 seconds off my load time.

Gave it only 4 stars though because there were two bugs in the code I had to manually fix:

1 - .js files in footer.php weren't combining - found fix in the forum

2 - external cache expiry option was not saving, had to edit manually in DB

Almost perfect!
By , for WP 3.5

it does only need to be able to fully compress the HTML on demand, for example, actual compressed version:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<!--[if lte IE 8]><html
class="ie" lang="en-US" prefix="og: http://ogp.me/ns# fb: http://ogp.me/ns/fb#"><![endif]--><html
lang="en-US" prefix="og: http://ogp.me/ns# fb: http://ogp.me/ns/fb#"><!--<![endif]--><head>

New compression:
<!DOCTYPE html><!--[if lte IE 8]><html class="ie" lang="en-US" prefix="og: http://ogp.me/ns# fb: http://ogp.me/ns/fb#"><![endif]--><html lang="en-US" prefix="og: http://ogp.me/ns# fb: http://ogp.me/ns/fb#"><!--<![endif]--><head>

Then I give you 5 stars :D

Thank you so much!
