Support » Plugin: Fast Velocity Minify » Ecellent Plugin!

  • Hello,

    Thanks for this wonderful plugin for newbies like myself. After using it i have seen speed increases but there are still some errors that are showing up and was wondering if you can share any suggestions or recommendations on how to fix it.

    One of the primary problem that is still persisting is the the render-blocking resources and how to eliminate it? There is also the problems with fewer javascripts and how to combine them as well as how to defer parsing JavaScript to reduce blocking of page rendering.

    Any suggestions? Thank you

    Hi,

    As explained on the faqs:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/fast-velocity-minify/faq/

    The plugin is geared for developers and advanced users as a tool to optimize sites.
    Users with less technical know how can obviously still use it, but it’s a try and error process.

    Depending on the plugins and theme you use, it may not be possible to eliminate render-blocking (without causing errors) unless you hire a developer to make adjustments on oter sections of your site.

    You don’t simple eliminate render blocking.
    Render blocking exists because plugin and theme developers made them that way, and need to load in that specific order.
    A developer however, can sometimes rewrite things differently, so it can eliminate render blocking.

    FVM has a few options to eliminate render blocking, but you need to look out for errors on the page… and see if everything is working.
    If it’s not, it means your site requires render blocking and then your chance is to hire a developer to move some things around manually, so that it’s no longer necessary to be render blocking.

    External scripts such as facebook, youtube, ads, analytics, etc cannot be merged into one. Those libraries are independent from your site and if you put them there, you probably want them to be there the way they are supposed to be implemented.

    Of course, the more external scripts you include, the slower your scores will be, so you have to make sure you only include those scripts and tracking pixels which you absolutely must have.
