Support » Plugin: Swift Performance Lite » SWIFT and CLOUDFLARE minify together

    Hello,
    thanks for great great plugin.
    I use Cloudflare and installed your plugin. Should I disable Cloudflares Minification (JS, CSS, HTML) or should I leave it on for best performance? Does the minification works together with SWIFT?
    There are different opinions on the web using a caching plugin AND Cloudflare.
    Thanks

  • for example WP Rocket recommends to leave it ON

    I’ve never read WP Rockets documentation, but I am doubtful they say leave both minifying options on (cloudflare + wpr) I suppose it is possible for them to compliment each other but that is usually not the normal. You should pick one or the other to do the minifying. I would suggest turning cloudflare’s minify off. I have dozens of sites running Swift Performance and on cloudflare and I see the best performance when we minify at the source and then let cloudflare serve up the minified packages. You can test it to see if that works for your specific set up, but definitely only use 1 minifying service

    Hello Scottie, thanks. I had both enabled and it worked, but I will try like you said and see if SWIFT alone or Cloudflare alone does better results.

    Just for information, from the wp rocket website:
    “Cloudflare can perform the minification process of CSS and JS files as well as WP Rocket, but there is one extra thing that WP Rocket does, and it is called concatenation. This means that WP Rocket combines files into little groups for better compatibility and performance, and that is one useful feature that is not included in Cloudflare.
    We recommend you activate minification in Cloudflare as well as WP Rocket in order to get the best results.”
