    Before considering to purchase, I want to hear what you gotta say first.

    Tried your plugin on a Genesis Framework test site. Fast and scored A, but I noticed the mobile “hamburger” icon is not loaded/missing. After some checking out, I think you basically “repackage” each and every page and load only bare minimal (so barebone even icon is lost). I see the number of requests has been reduced to almost half… Basically “cutting corner”, so to speak.

    That’s fine. All I care is speed and lightweight, so your “cutting corner” technology may just be what I need – I wanted maximum speed/lightweight.

    My questions are: –

    1. On pages that doesn’t render properly eg. missing “hamburger menu icon”, how do I get it back – it doesn’t seem I have control over what to load, what not to load. So, what is the solution here?

    NB: Do you plan to do something like Performatter’s script manager (on admin bar) that will allow enable/disable certain scripts on all pages? Is this a good idea?

    2. Since you actually “repackage” each and every page (as witnessed in my test with several pages only- and takes a long time) – this is fine with simple small sites. However, some of my sites are full with content – thousands of posts. Isn’t this going to take forever, or likely to crash (I haven not try)?

    3. One of my biggest issue is Ads… Massive ads file are serve right on my homepage even though I purposely remove the ads widget from the homepage. Do you have a way to disable the ads script from loading on the homepage at all?

    4. I also noticed you never update the plugin, the last one was like half a year ago? Why don’t you update frequently like most major good plugin? Even WP has been update several times, how is it you don’t have to do any changes at all?

    Hi,

    Let me start answering question 4 as it is always easier to start with some good news 🙂

    Swift Team fully understand the importance of a public roadmap and informing customers. Until now improving and further developing Swift Performance needed full attention. In the past months several updates have been released, but only in beta version and therefore not visible to the public. All known bugs have been made and the UI has been improved and easier to configure.
    Swift Pro users always have access to beta versions, unlike the LITE users. Anyway, thanks for the feedback, it helps us to improve our product.

    Regarding to your other questions, there is no one fix tutorial that suits for all websites as there are thousands of different setups, themes, plugins and combinations. Without providing an URL of your website where you have some issues it’s impossible to help you here.

    May I suggest these available information helping understandig Swift settings and configuration?
