    The only thing that i don’t figure out now is a message that appears all the time: “Recently an error occurred while creating the CSS / JS minify cache: Some files were unavailable, please check the settings to ensure the site is working as intended”. But when i chack my site i don’t find any issue. the site is

    Thanks very much for your reply.

    In the minifying process, incorrect .js code was generated. You’ll see what I mean in my post. Good luck!
