Support » Plugin: Autoptimize » Very good plugin! Suggestion: option for JS minify in both header and footer

  • Hello,

    First of all: this plugin rocks! Take a look which works with this powerful configuration:

    1. WP Engine hosting
    2. MaxCDN content delivery network
    3. Autoptimize combine/minify

    Page load time: 511 ms (Tested from Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

    Second: I also have a suggestion for improvement of the AUTOPTIMIZE plugin.

    As far as I know there’s no option for Javascript files to be both combined/minified in the header and footer of the website. If you want to keep the header scripts in the header and the footer scripts in the footer, it’s not possible.

    The only solution the plugin offers is to place the minified file in the head or the footer.

    Why not create an option that allows one to create 2 minified JS files. One for the header scripts, placed in the header, and one for the footer, placed in the footer.

    Bedankt Rick! I’ll add your suggestion to my “to be looked into”-list 😉

    Hello Futtta,

    Did you already look at the option for improvement I suggested?

    I’m sure that if you build it, your Autoptimize plugin becomes the best and most popular JS/CSS combine and minify plugin for WordPress.

    Trust me I tried them all 😉 W3 Total Cache offers the best combine and minify options, but this plugin is not allowed at the best WordPress hosting platform out there: WP Engine.

    still on my (extensive) wish-list Rick. so many ideas, so little time …

    if you’re into that kind of thing I’d be happy to receive/ review/ apply patches with your improvements 🙂
