    Great plugin, but I found that the Frontend optimisation really screwed up my site. It quite literally changed everything from the nav, to text, images, CSS and JS. Some images disappeared and others changed, general layout and 80% of the text CSS changed to for the worse.

    Luckily I got it all back by unticking every in the Frontend Optimisation. But is there some plain English SIMPLE documentation/videos for this area you’d recommend please, that could could give a bit more info about how to use this, …for people who are not code writer/developers? This would be useful.

    Happy to send screenshots of what it looked like with Frontend optimisation activated.

    It is recommended that you check your website after each optimization you enable or disable to pinpoint exactly what went wrong.

    Since your layout has been damaged, I would suspect HTML minification and CSS combination. Check your theme and see if it has such options included in it. Although it is not something they should do, theme providers often include things like minification, combination and even lazy load in them. I can’t provide a simple documentation for every possible case and combination of techniques. That’s why we have them on toggles and we support exclude lists. For example, on my personal site, I’ve excluded an A/B comparisson slider from lazy loading because it doesn’t work that well with it.

    Thank you for your reply, it was very helpful.
