Support » Plugin: Better WordPress Minify » Did not work for my theme..issues!

    While at first I detected no trouble in the appearance or behaviour of my site, I then noticed the following:
    1. It had only minified js files, not css files, (even though both options were checked).
    2. It clashed with my theme and child theme, ignoring certain styles/rules applied. I saw the default colors of my theme instead of my own style.css. This could mean that it did some kind of minification on one of the style.css files, (?). I made sure my own style.css was chosen to load through my theme’s options, but it just ignored it despite the fact that it was checked all along!
    3. I de-activated the plugin, to see if the issue would go away, but to no avail.
    4. I deleted it, and voila..my child theme’s preferences were back..!!!
    What on earth..? I’m just GLAD I got my style.css back!
    No I wouldn’t recommended unless you really know exactly all the plugin’s in and out’s and you are a pro somehow..! I only left it at default settings, merely to try/test it out..but no, it didn’t do it!
    Most importantly, when I ran my site through Gooogle’s ‘Page Speed insights’, the speed had not really improved, it remained the same. While it stated that it saw JS minification, it did not recognise any minification in CSS, (the same ‘unminified’ files were still showing up as ‘warnings’).
    Just thought I’d report my experience/findings instead of just giving it a 1 star without much explanation!
