[Resolved] Home page corrupted

    some questions to start off with;
    = what theme are you using?
    = did you also have this issue with the previous version of autoptimize, or are you a new user?
    = does the problem persist if you check the option to only search for CSS in the head?
    = can you provide me with the URL of your site, so I can have a look at the CSS?

    kind regards,

    forgot one question; what browser did you observe the CSS breakage in?

    Thanks for the quick reply! I am really happy that Autoptimize support is secured for the future.

    – I am using the theme “Slash” from Dream-Theme (http://themeforest.net/item/slash-wp/701905)
    – Version 1.4 worked okay for me and I now reverted back to this version.
    – I have to admit that I did not try that.
    – I checked it in Safari, Chrome and Firefox. The result in all three browsers is identical.

    What might help: I noticed that the home page looks okay as long as I am logged in as admin. The problem only occurs when I am logged out from the WP backend.

    Thanks for your help!

    P.S. It’s past midnight over here. I will try the “serach for CSS in only the head” tomorrow.

    We’re in the same timezone (I’m in Belgium), so ping me here when you’re going to re-enable 1.5 so I can check what is going on in the CSS (or even javascript)?

    I see I introduced a small bug in /wp-content/plugins/autoptimize/classes/autoptimizeStyles.php in the getcontent-function which just might be the reason for the regression (although I would be surprised).

    Line 326 now reads:
    $this-> nt = '';

    but should instead be
    $this->restofcontent = '';

    Can you change this when re-applying 1.5? There were some other small changes in autoptimizeStyles.php, most of which were for convering background-images to data-URI’s, but I suppose you’re not using those?
    If the problem persists, I’d like to compare the CSS at that point with the 1.4-one I have in a browser tab now.

    I also took a look at your site, comparing HTML & CSS for HP versus other pages (which aren’t broken, correct?). I suspect the problem is related to the fact that the CSS for #holder is defined 2 times on the HP, once for the generic #holder and once for the HP specifically. The HP-specific CSS for the holder-div resets the padding from the default “14px 0 63px 287px;” to “0 !important” and if that reset is not honored, the main div indeed moves 287 pixels right.

    It would make sense for the CSS that is specific for #holder div on the HP, to be defined as “#holder.static” or “#holder.h” (the static- and h-classes are added to the holder-div in the HP HTML but not on other pages) instead of just “#holder”? This small change might (but then again might not) solve the problem with the newer version of Autoptimize.

    Hope this helps! 🙂

    Hi Frank,

    my site is now online, using v1.5. I have applied the change to autoptimizeStyles.php and also tried to search for CSS in only the head, but the problem persists.

    Hope the CSS will tell you something. 😉 Please let me know when I can revert back to v1.4.

    Thanks a lot for your support!

    Forgot to mention that the layout is responsive to the screen size. Try and change the with of your browser window and you’ll see what I mean. At a smaller screen size the menu is replaced by a mobile version and the text box moves from right to left. At an even smaller screen size the mobile menu is getting smaller an the box disappears.

    The latter one works fine, but the other two views have offset issues. And yes, v1.5 works fine for all other pages and I am not using URIs for images.

    Can you for testing purposes in autoptimizeStyles.php on line 323 change title (back) into head;

    $this->content = str_replace('</title>','</title><link type="text/css" media="'.$media.'" href="'.$url.'" rel="stylesheet" />',$this->content);

    to see if that solves the problem? this -at first sight- seems the only change that might cause the regression. feel free to roll back to 1.4 if it does not work after that (i’ll dive into the CSS which I have in a tab) later tonight/ tomorrow).

    Two replacements, right? I did that, but with no success. So I’ll roll back to 1.4 for the moment.

    Man, that’s almost real time. I never experienced such a swift response before. Cool!

    If you still haven’t rolled back, I’ll post some other small changes in a minute to do “near real time” bugfixing 🙂

    1. line 323 change should be:
    $this->content = str_replace('</head>','<link type="text/css" media="'.$media.'" href="'.$url.'" rel="stylesheet" /></head>',$this->content);

    2. if that doesn’t help, change that back into:
    $this->content = str_replace('</title>','</title><link type="text/css" media="'.$media.'" href="'.$url.'" rel="stylesheet" />',$this->content);

    and put line 286 in comments, uncommenting the same code on line 299.

    3. if that does not help, put 299 back in comments and uncomment 286 and go to line 310;

    $this->content = preg_replace('#%%IEHACK%%(.*)%%IEHACK%%#Usie','stripslashes(base64_decode("$1"))',$this->content);

    and change it into
    $this->content = preg_replace('#%%IEHACK%%(.*)%%IEHACK%%#Usie','base64_decode("$1")',$this->content);

    If that does not help either the problem is not in autoptimizeStyles.php (meaning I’ll just have to dig deeper).

    Yippee! 🙂

    The first advise fixed it. I apparently did a mistake when editing line 323. Now I pasted in the code you suggested and it works.

    A very BIG thank you!

    Plugin Author Frank Goossens


    very happy it works that way!

    I made that change because of issue with the Twenty Twelve theme, but in that case I’ll just have to look for another solution.

    Greetings from neighboring Belgium,

    Marked as “works” 🙂
