[resolved] [Plugin: W3 Total Cache] Line Break Removal Breaks Comments Vote Plugin (4 posts)

    Just want to inform everyone that I think the Line Break Removal feature can make the Comments Vote plugin not work. I have test it with and without it to check. I am not sure why but I hope maybe there is an answer and other people will not be surprised by this. Do not remove line breaks and the plugin will work normally so it should not be a big deal. Just curious why it will not work. Is it a Javascript or AJAX issue?

    Anyway, will maybe change to Comment Rating plugin soon. Hope there will not be any problems with that.

    Plugins with inline code that is not properly escaped or syntactically incorrect with whitespace removed will break. Often developers use the line break to avoid an additional semicolon for example - not a practice I recommend.

    You may want to notify the author the the plugin does not stand up well to minification.

    Hi Frederick,

    Thank you for your expert knowledge. Although I am not familiar enough to check the code of this plugin, I think maybe you are correct. We do not plan on using this plugin too much longer.

    I wonder if the plugin author has explored this issue at all?
