Remove Query Strings From Static Resources


This plugin will remove query strings from static resources like CSS & JS files, and will improve your speed scores in services like PageSpeed, YSlow, Pingdoom and GTmetrix.

Resources with a “?” or “&” in the URL are not cached by some proxy caching servers, and moving the query string and encode the parameters into the URL will increase your WordPress site performance significant.


Did not work


Exactly the same GTmetrix "Remove query strings from static resources" errors as before I installed the plugin.

Didn't Work for Site


Would be great if it worked for me but it must be conflicting with the theme or another plugin because it doesnt' strip the query strings and it also made my site load slower. I had a score of 67 in pingdom with plugin activated but without it, I get a 79 with no other changes made.
