    As per the Forum Welcome, please post your own topic.

    I am using 0.9.3 and all of the options you list are not available. What version are you using?

    I don’t get any options about where to place the JS on the page, it only displays before </head> and the other options are JS, async and defer.

    Generally when I load JS files it usually works best if you use the non-blocking JS method. That way the page can continue to load and onload and oncomplete work correctly for JS that’s embedded on the page.


    Esmi. isn’t this my own topic? What are you saying?

    My comment was meant for those who are trying to hijack your topic. 🙂

    @almooj-craig: These options appear when you change from auto to manual in

    General Settings -> Minify -> Minify Mode

    @venturavan: Some general info about blocking vs non-blocking scripts is here.

    That article didn’t provide enough info for me to resolve minification issues, or fully explain all those settings, but it’s a start.



    Thanks for the explanation. I have always just used the auto mode, so I didn’t spot those other options.

    I should also mention that when you use the non-blocking JS method that you might need to rewrite some of the other plugins js because the jquery will get loaded after any js that’s in the page.
