    Hello,
    Is minify enabled on Auto? If so, please switch to Manual minify and add JS and CSS files manually and in proper order.

    It is already enabled on manual mode. I have also added Js and CSS files manually earlier. now what should i do?
    Is there any time period after that minified CSS file auto update?
    please guide me about this because it occurs twice and thrice in a week?

    Hello,
    Is that CSS file added to minify manually? If Manual mode is active then you might need to put the CSS files in proper order. Or simply remove that file from CSS file management:

    currently i don,t know about that file because i have purged the cache. what is the proper order and proper pattern for CSS file management ?
    now what should i do to prevent this issue in future?
    1) when i purge the cache, then a new minified CSS file shows. should i have to add this file in css file management to minify as well or not?
    2) is this issue occurs due to server response or not?
    3) is there any settings so that if cache minified file is not properly updated, then it will auto update the file again?
    4) please guide me about proper order. from where i can check that it is properly ordered or not?

    please suggest me about these four things?

    Hello,
    Without being able to see the issue or the file, I can only advise you to remove all JS and CSS files of the theme that you are currently using from minify.
    i.e /wp-content/themes/Yourtheme/style.css

    you are saying that in the minify section, i should delete all the files. currently 325 css files links are added in css minify section.
    should i remove all these files?
    Should i remain enable manual mode?
    please guide me?

    Hello,
    As said in previous posts, CSS files must be added to minify manually and in proper order. NOw Manual minify can be tricky so you need to proceed with care. Try to exclude all your theme JS and CSS files from minifying (Just don’t add them manually).
    As every website is different I can not give you the “correct” order of your files as I can not see those files.
    Alternatively, I can offer you our Pro support. You can contact us via plugin Performance>Support and choose plugin configuration solution.

    Hi, if i exclude all of those files from manual minfied section, then on page speed insights they will give warnings to eliminate rendering of those theme files, then what should i do with those theme files?

    should i remove these theme js files
    1) wp-content/themes/creative_system/js/less.js
    2) wp-content/themes/creative_system/js/ga.js

    and these css files
    1) https://www.creativesystems.com/wp-content/themes/creative_system/style.css?ver=4.7.4
    2) https://www.creativesystems.com/wp-content/themes/creative_system/style.css?ver=4.9.2
    3) https://www.creativesystems.com/wp-content/themes/creative_system/style.css?ver=4.9.4
    4) https://www.creativesystems.com/wp-content/themes/creative_system/genericons/genericons.css?ver=3.0.2
    5) https://www.creativesystems.com/wp-content/themes/creative_system/style.css?ver=5.1.1
    6) wp-content/themes/creative_system/bootstrap/css/bootstrap.css
    7) wp-content/themes/creative_system/css/owl.carousel.css
    8) wp-content/themes/creative_system/css/animations.css
    9) wp-content/themes/creative_system/css/colorbox.css
    10) wp-content/themes/creative_system/css/component.css
    11) wp-content/themes/creative_system/css/styles.css

    the 11th number file is main css file of the website. should i need to exclude all those css and js files that are mentioned above or main css file from manual minify section.

    one more question, plugins Css files and cache minified files should be added in manual minified section or not?

    please guide me as soon as possible?

    i have one question more. please see the source code
    view-source:https://www.creativesystems.com/
