One of best plugin (for me). Check my pingdom result: [Link redacted] tools.pingdom.com

Awesome plugin and support
By ,

This plugin is very easy to install and works very well on my sites. It does not break the layout like some other plugins did, but you might need some tweaking in the options to get best results. The plugin developer is extremely knowledgeable though and offers great support. I only wish it did not take that many ressources to rebuild the files after a cache deletion.

Great plugin, one step only from being perfect!

I wish I could inline "above the fold CSS" for several pages. So far I used http://jonassebastianohlsson.com/criticalpathcssgenerator/ but my website uses 3-4 different templates, meaning different above the fold css for every template. The tool you suggested although it does great job it can only have one output. For any page I choose it, it does a good job but only for the respective pages of the same template.

I also have sent you an email asking you if i can become a beta tester of your addons. I'm really interested in the second option "A settings-page to configure “above-the-fold”-CSS for specific pages". However I haven't received an answer yet.

Compact, works well

I've been using this with ZenCache. The only thing I've run in to is that the cache can get large over time, so I manually clear it periodically (I believe this may have to do with the Jetpack "related posts" plugin).

Terribly slowed my site down.

Plugin really slowed my site down. It was taken ages to get from one page to another. Once uninstalled everything works fine. Google page rank got higher though. I will test it in the future with different websites but it didn't do anything good at the moment.

Superb plugin. Very easy to configure

Significant reduction in load times

When combined with WP Supercache, Autoptimize reduced page load times on two of my websites to less than 3 seconds. Very impressed!

Being a newbie, I have been burned SEVERAL times by plugins. Both free and paid. Especially when it comes to support. Not so in the case of Autoptimize and the plugin author Frank.

Up until recently, I had been using a different plugin that essentially did that same thing. For a newbie, it was difficult to set up and use. Suddenly being thrust into needing to make a "professional" site, I did some searching and came across AO. I tried it out and found that not only was it easy to install and configure, but out of the box it gave me better speed scores across the board. Gtmetrix, Pingdom, etc. All of them.

And the support is incredible. Frank is obviously VERY knowledgeable. And he was very patient with me as a newbie who knows just enough to be dangerous. Each an every issue I have come across (and, by the way, the issues were with the plugins I was using...NOT his), he has gone out of his way to help me out.

If Frank ever decides to do a paid version of this plugin, I will be the first in line to give him some money for it.

Thanks Frank!
