Support » Plugin: Simple Custom CSS and JS » css files aren’t removed from folder

  • Resolved Rob7


    I notice whenever a css snippet is added (whether inline or external file) a new file is created in the folder uploads/custom-css-js.

    When i remove the snippet the corresponding file however isn’t deleted. Should it be? I was expecting it to be deleted so it didn’t take up unnecessary disk space.

    Also when linking to external file(s), is there a performance hit when linking to multiple external files? Would it be better if they were combined into one producing a smaller html page?

  • Hello, Eric here. Not the dev but I am about to fork it so let me say this:
    You are perfectly right.
    1) it’s a bug, but who cares about 1k disk space, seriously? plus it’s like an history for you to keep…
    2) yes there is a performance hit as any single file leads to an http request: connect, get etc. So yeah pingdom and gtmetrix do not like that.

    I would recommend to either concatenate them or install a perf cache plugin such as w3tc or fatest cache so they will concatenate and minify them for you.

    Thanks Eric, much appreciated.

    I know disk space isn’t massive, i am ocd. But the number of files will mount and the space will be much more than 1K. I also will clone dev sites, so these files will only increase. And when you backup a site in 3 different places and multiply by the number of sites we have on a server (and pay for disk space on server and backups), then it’s just something i like to keep under control, that’s all. I am control freak.

    I use WP Rocket, so hopefully, that will sort out minification etc.

    these are very good suggestions. I’ll put them on my TODO list and implement them in one of the next versions.
