Support » Plugin: Breeze - WordPress Cache Plugin » It’s basically Autoptimize, but worse…

  • I was expecting a lot more from the Breeze cache to be honest. A poor performance by Cloudways.

    Still many simple bugs which need to be ironed out, seems like plugin is not tested before new editions are released.

    The plugin is based off autoptimize plugin, yet has only a fraction of the original plugin features, with some very basic features missing…

    Cons

    – Combined JS files are loaded in head as render blocking, no option to load in footer or even to add defer/async tags
    – since the last update, when in the admin area, in the top bar the ‘Purge All Cache’ link doesn’t work.
    – When combining JS files, only selective scripts are combined.
    – Combining of JS files can often result in 2 or more combined files, whilst it does reduce the number of external requests, why not combine into 1 file like so many other plugins can?

    When you raise issues with support, you get fobbed off to have a look at documentation, even when you’ve clearly specified exactly what the issue is. I did eventually get a response though that told me to manually combine javascript files the plugin did not catch… wow. I’ll just uninstall and use a plugin which works. Thanks.

    Very disappointed.

    My advice: just stick with Autoptimize and use a second plugin to handle varnish purging if you have it enabled.

    Hi @pthomson87
    Thank you for your review. I am sorry that Breeze plugin falls short of your expectations.
    We are working on the “Purge All Cache” link issue and it might get fixed in the coming release. As far as the issues with the JS file combining are concerned, we are looking into them and the future releases will fix the problems.
    We do test each version before realizing it to the community. I strongly recommend you to check out the change log to see what issues are fixed in each release. As mentioned earlier, JS file combining will be improved in the upcoming releases.
