Thank you for a easy set up plugin. Been trying to minify and combine using W3 Total Cache for a while and gave up with its minify function. I am not saying W3 Total Cache is a bad plugin, it is not. This plugin just makes the job far easier for minifying & combining.
There is still work to do to identity those styles & scripts that need excluding. I don't know if this can be made easier by some how allowing the plugin to list the styles & scripts, and then checking those styles & scripts to not include after you've identified the excluders.
I've been trying to use the minify feature of the W3 Total Cache plugin and struggled with it for years. Had to manually exclude many scripts and styles (particularly those related to WooCommerce and GravityForms) to prevent the minification from breaking my website.
Then I tried AssetsMinify and it pretty much simply worked. I did have some small issues getting it to pick up all of my CSS and JS assets, but that was minor and the most important thing is that the resulting combined/minified .css and .js did work.
The code of the plugin is easy to understand and well-written.
Uncheck Compress styles and delete your caches and reload the page if this isn't working for you. I'd suggest to the author this is unchecked by default upon install to prevent negative reviews!
Works great and does not fail the Remove query strings from static resources test on GTMetrix like Better WP minify!
sticks to the essential and works.
When I couldn't get W3 Total Cache minify to work (it broke by theme) I installed this one. At first, AssetsMinify did the same, so I deselected "minify style" and it worked perfectly! It makes it really easy for non-tech-savvy users (like myself) to make it work.
Does exactly what it says.
I would like a bit more customization, but that's far from an issue.
Sorry, but this plugin broke my theme.
Here's the error when trying to access any page on my website:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING or '(' in /home/XXXXXX/public_html/wp-content/plugins/assetsminify/AssetsMinifyInit.php on line 6
Probably the best minify plugin I've ever tried.
Minification + combination done by this plugin works perfectly. It's done in a very sensible way, using async attributes on the generated script tags to speed up page display, placing the script tag correctly on header and/or footer without asking you if it should, because it does not need to. Well done!
Does what it should. Thanks for this nice plugin.
