    Please Add option to automatic deletion of cache! The cache size is so big after while. It must be handled somehow. Otherwise its useless plugin for many people..

    Hey @pavelcech; automatic cache purging is a bad idea for multiple reasons, most of which are touched upon in the FAQ and in this blogpost about canary’s and coal-mines.

    Moreover cache size problems are generally easily fixed by;

    * not aggregating inline JS (default off)
    * not aggregating inline CSS (default on)
    * excluding wp-content/cache and wp-content/uploads from CSS optimization as that’s where some themes/ plugins store non-static CSS that can bust the cache (default in new installs since 2.3.3)

    In AO 2.4 (which is in beta) we will also “listen” for page caches purging their own cache, upon which AO will clear its own cache as well.

    hope this clarifies,
    frank

    In the Autoptimize settings page. make sure “advanced settings” are visible (button near the top-right corner) and then scroll down to “CSS options” and at the bottom of those you’ll see “Exclude CSS from Autoptimize:” which is a comma-separated list. There’s more info in the FAQ about how to exclude as well by the way 🙂
