First, happy new year and a bit late merry Christmas!
And thank you very much for such a nice plugin and all the hard work you put into it, even if you made us struggle a bit with the v3 🙂
Here are my settings with the v3
Merge and defer scripts (if I understand correctly, this basically makes the v3 behaves and optimizes like v2 of your script):
Ignore script files (if I understand correctly, this basically makes the v3 behaves and ignores the same files as v2 of your script with minor differences-see below*):
Merge render-blocking JS files in the header:
I tried all 3 usual suspects and found that I had to put /jquery.min.js no matter what, if not the page is broken and doesn’t load correctly.
But the other 2:
doesn’t have the same effect so I don’t put them in here. Maybe I should, to be sure?
I also had to exclude one CSS file because before, I think that the v2.8.9 of your plugin was merging the CSS files in order and that one CSS file was always the first, but now with v3.x.x, this file goes to the end of the list, so the page is visually broken. Is there a way to force merge order?
*And I see that from the older version, ignore list and blacklist became just one list to ignore in the v3. And there are some lines missing in the new one (from what you said that we should use if we want the v3 works as v2 in another discussion https://wordpress.org/support/topic/not-usable-anymore-3/) :
Should I also add these files to the ignore list?
So I’m basically trying to make the v3 works as the v2 (well because it was working perfectly, at least for me).
With these settings, there’s no significant page speed difference that a human being can really notice. But, google pagespeed insights and gtmetrix scores are much better.
And again, thank you very much, and happy new year!
