• So, after some days with this plugin, I can’t recommend this plugin anymore.
    When I remove all filters that I had set, delete all caches and another plugin still has problems. But when I deactivate “WP Scripts & Styles Optimizer” and the other plugin works now, then something is wrong with “WP Scripts & Styles Optimizer”.

    And I had problems with another plugin too.

    After every plugin update or new installation or deletion you have to refresh the “WP Scripts & Styles Optimizer”-list. No idea why, since:

    And there are more uncomfortable things in the workflow. When I delete a plugin, the JS and CSS files of this plugin are grayed out in “WP Scripts & Styles Optimizer”. It says “Can’t find the file”. And I can’t click on the checkboxes to delete all together, I have to remove it item for item. Why these files are still in the plugin-list of “WP Scripts & Styles Optimizer”, if they do not exist anymore? Also if I refresh the list, they are still there.

    Btw. I changed the rating from 5 to 1 star, but it still shows 5 (atm).

    I’m sry, that you had problems with this plugin. Maybe you can tell me, what problems you had exactly. Has it anything to do with javascripts or css files added from these other plugins?

    And the reason why you have to refresh the list after a theme- or plugin-change is, that there could be new scripts or styles or some of them were removed. This can’t be done automatically yet, but it maybe will in future versions. But thats no reason to give it a 1 star rating, in my opinion, because it’s the normal behaviour.

    The last thing you mentioned is right. That’s not a perfect solution at the moment and could obviously be improved. Maybe you give it a second chance with the next version, that will soon be ready.

    Useful – If you do not know how to use it please don’t put 1 star

    @dpwp, are you able to know, what went wrong?

    I did not give one star for the uncomfortable refresh behavior.
    I gave this rating since this plugin has an impact on other plugins, although! no filters were set. This is unacceptable, sorry.

    As I described there:

    When I remove all filters that I had set, delete all caches and another plugin still has problems. But when I deactivate “WP Scripts & Styles Optimizer” and the other plugin works now, then something is wrong with “WP Scripts & Styles Optimizer”.

    Please read this again. Or Step by step: I set filters in your plugin for JS and CSS. I updated Toolset plugins and the views were broken. Before this all was fine, your plugin worked fine and I was really excited. Of course I could only assume, that the update, resp. the toolset plugins and so their support would be accountable. So I made a mirror website and had a lot of wasted time to provide the support with material.

    But while I did the mirror website, I could not reproduce the issue. So I rethought all, and I deactivated your plugin on the life website. And voila the issue disappeared. After some deactivating, activating, refreshing your plugin , delete filters, set filters, deleted caches etc. suddenly the problem had disappeared.

    Okay, I thought, probably the server had a hickup or something else. Then I found the next issue. A premium reviewer plugin tried to load an ajax script but ony runs in an endlees loop. Okay, sigh, I thought, I will deleted all filters in JS and CSS for this in your plugin. I did this, refreshed, no change, the same endless loop. In the next step I deleted ALL Filters that were set for JS and CSS, so no Filter existed anymore in your plugin. Again I deleted all caches (WP and browser) and? No change – the same endles loop. In my opinion I had wasted enough time now. I deacitvated your plugin and? The endless loop of the reviewers plugin had stopped and the Ajax script had loaded. I activated your plugin and the endless loop started again.

    So, I am sorry, but a plugin with this behavior, that has an impact although no filters are set is not usable. And therefore is the 1 star.

    You are apparrently the only one with a problem like this. I can’t imagine, how my plugin could have such an effect on other plugins, since it does actually nothing else than enqueue or dequeue scripts or styles under specific conditions. It don’t change the content of any JS or CSS file. So, if the file is there, where it should be, the function must be the same. Have you checked the html code, that the JS-file is enqueued at all?

    It also cannot be a JavaScript issue with my own JS files for this plugin, because they are only loaded if you’re on the global or page-specific site’s of my plugin in the backend.

    I would like to know, why you think, that the other plugin isn’t the error source? Maybe some non-wp-standards coding to enqueue their scripts? Too bad it’s a premium plugin. That makes it hard to figure out the problem, regardless of whether it’s my plugin or theirs. Is there a free version maybe?

    Get someone professional to login and fix your problem. If you think you are right then don’t use this plugin and use others.

    Sometimes premium plugin will have conflict, error cause to others plugin as well.

    Don’t always think all premium plugin is better than free donate plugin.

    Ignore this 1 star reviewer because she is inexperience

    @dpwp are you the buddy of the plugin author or why do you mean you must insult my person? You don’t know me. If you have objective arguments, it’s okay. But stop your rant like a kid.

    @hendrik:
    Again:
    I deactivate YOUR plugin and the other plugin works.
    I activate YOUR plugin and the other plugin stopped working.

    The settings in YOUR plugin are all default. So ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I understand what you’re saying, but that’s in no way a proof that my plugin is the source of the problem in this situation. I’m not saying, that it’s not possible, but it’s very unlikely in my opinion. I always stick to the wordpress standards and use wordpress’s own native functions. I also can’t imagine how my code could produce an error like this.

    It works fine with any script or style that is properly enqueued via the wp_enqueue_xxx functions.
    But if you really think a 1 star rating is justified, i have to accept it..
