    This plugin can not be compared and are not the same.

    You must mean my plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-criticalcss/

    Regarding it..

    Mine can be more advanced and take a bit more work to setup, though it was actually the 1st one created to solve the problem for WordPress.

    WP CriticalCSS does allow fallback per term and post, as well as globally per post type/taxomnomy and does not require the API.

    One thing I do not believe autoptimize-criticalcss has is it can store CSS by the wordpress template, and not the post itself, so you save a lot of processing by reusing a generated CSS output.

    My plugin is standalone and relies on no other plugin, but it does integrate with wp-rocket.

    Regarding rocket-async-css, it is a better CSS minification plugin to replace the abilities of wp-rocket but does require wp-rocket.

    If you have further specific questions, I am happy to answer.

    Yes sorry about that.

    Many thanks for the answers.

    Regarding rocket-async-css, it is a better CSS minification plugin to replace the abilities of wp-rocket but does require wp-rocket.

    A better? It asyncs css not minify?

    Can I have concatenate and minify on while using this together with criticalcss.com API?

    Does it support following plugins:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/powered-cache/
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/fast-velocity-minify/

    It does async loading and minify. You can not minify only and not use concat. However there is a filter to disable the minify if needed.

    All my plugins are designed to work together.

    And no, I have not specifically integrated it with cache plugins others than rocket and what I maintain. Has not been a huge need yet.

    Ok, your plugin do? So should I keep minify and concat in wp rocket or not? Though the plugin only async.

    Understandable!

    Can I have concatenate and minify on while using this together with criticalcss.com API? Does this work with criticalcss plugin? and does it cater and work for mobile as well if two separated cache files are using and using different styles for mobile and desktop. Based on web standards and media queries. Wonder so that criticalcss does not break any responsiveness.

    Yes, if you disable minify setting it will disable my plugin as it “replaces” wp-rockets minify. It will ignore any concat setting and do it anyways.

    my critical css works perfectly fine with this and wp-rocket. Will work in mobile too, though problems should be directed at criticalcss.com support first.

    Ok but you say I can have everything enable in WP rocket all is then good and how it should be, right?

    Ok good, but it disabled the critical css pre-build in wp-rocket then or?

    wp-rocket critical css does not work with my critical css plugin

    Ok just leave that box empty then.

    Anyhow does this plugin work without wp rocket it does right?

    Adding critical css would solve the:

    Prioritize visible content
    Your page requires additional network round trips to render the above-the-fold content. For best performance, reduce the amount of HTML needed to render above-the-fold content.

    Or am I wrong here?

    Yes, critical css is supposed to solve the above the fold/blocking css error though you can still get it reported in some cases.

    Of course, great thanks Derrick!

    But this function breaks the site to async css. Is it combining all inline css and create a file of it? Tried it out on staging which breaks most styling parts. Both from theme and customize css.

    Yes it merges inline css as well in the order it is outputted with all other CSS.

    Ok I think I know why it breaks since parent style.css overrides it. Due to wordpress and theme css selectors hierarchy. Which makes the site look strange since this css file then becomes secondary and not first in order. Like it is when inlining in wordpress css.
