Support » Plugin: Wordpress Assets manager, dequeue scripts, dequeue styles » Assets Manager versus Plugin Organizer

    Hello,

    thanks for contributing your plugin for free.

    Situation:
    If I use the plugin “Plugin Organizer”, I can control per page, post type, plugin filter or globally, which plugin should be “activated”. So if I “deactivate” a plugin for a specific page, the corresponding JS and CSS files will be excluded from this page too.

    Question:
    Do you know a reason, why I should use your plugin “Assets Manager” anyway?

    Thanks in advance,
    Ralf.

  • I think the most significant difference would be that a plugin control does not give you control over what scripts and styles your theme loads, where as this asset manager appears to offer control of the them’s assets as well. I haven’t tried either yet, mind you, but control of all assets does seem important to me. The theme I use loads several which are not needed on every page/post.

    Hi CParris,

    thanks for your response and yes, you’re right 🙂
    The theme assets can’t be controlled by the “Plugin Organizer”.

    Another point is the ability to control the load of several JS or CSS files of a single plugin, like WooCommerce. So a fine tuning of a page is possible this way.

    Sometimes you have to “talk” about things to get a better understanding.
    Thanks a lot for your efforts.

    Sincerely,
    Ralf.

    Hello @zim68 and @cparris! You’re both right =) Thank you for the constructively discussion!

    By the way, did you tried our Clearfy plugin?

    Hello Alexander,

    thanks for your response.

    By the way, did you tried our Clearfy plugin?

    Yes indeed, that’s the plugin I use.
    But I decided to post my question here, because it’s an aspect of the “Assets Manager” plugin, which is a part of the “Clearfy” plugin. (I know, you know that 😀 )

    Thanks again for the good work,
    Ralf.

    I wasn’t sure I needed all the features of Clearfy, and since I’m trying to keep my installation lean, I opted for trying Assets Manager instead. Yesterday I put it through its paces. It works very well! I had to enable my Admin bar in WordPress so I could use Assets Manager on the frontend. This allowed me to use the “Current URL” setting to enable CSS and Javascript for a specific page. Enabling the bar was a worthwhile change because this plugin’s methodology for turning assets on and off was swift and efficient. So, thank you very much for creating this great plugin!

    That said, I think the description for Assets Manager should be edited here: “That’s why we created the WP Asset CleanUp plugin (Gonzales), …”. I suspect it was written this way for SEO, but to humans it implies you are taking credit for creating two plugins which were not developed by Webcraftic (but that share the same core function): WP Asset CleanUp by Gabriel Livan and Gonzales by Tomasz Dobrzynski. I’m sure this was not Webcraftic’s intention, and fixing it puts you in a better light, which might outweigh the SEO benefit in the long run.

    @zim68, thanks for using it!

    If you have some questions or suggestions feel free to contact.

    @cparris yes it was done for better SEO and fast start. I hear your point of view and partially agree with it. The description will change with future updates.
