Support » Plugin: Combine CSS » How does it know when to regenerate file?

  • Resolved pha3z



    Everything seems to be fixed in v0.7. I’ve tested it with W3 Total Cache and it seems to be compatible.

    I’m curious though, if I make a change to one of my CSS files, how does the plugin know to regenerate a new combined file? In the past, I was deactivating and reactivating the plugin through the plugin page during development — but this is extremely cumbersome. I’m wondering, could you add a button to the WP Admin Bar at the top labeled “Re-combine CSS” so clicking it would dump the .dat file and force a new generation? And also what about just having an “Enabled” option that you can change from the admin bar to tell combine CSS whether to deliver the combined file or all the individual files as normal WP behavior? That would be killer!

  • p.s. Thanks for your butt-kicking work so far. 🙂 I think this plugin allows a much better way to work with WordPress, and it could be very useful for all of us who want a shift in how we work.

    Hi Jim,

    I just added a Delete CSS Cache button. I will do the same with Combine JS soon as well. I will think a little more about the Enabled option as well.



    It’s working. I’d recommend changing the wording to “Clear CSS Cache”. Delete confused me when I first saw it, because it sounds like you’re permanently removing something instead of just resetting/clearing. ‘clear’ is a well understood computer term for such things.
