Not sure
By , for WP 4.2.2

I'm not sure how to rate this plugin. It must be of use for a lot of people, according to the ratings. But in my case page loading is much slower and with some settings the sites breaks. I tried all kinds of settings (also the advanced ones), but the site never improved.

Too Much Trouble -- Consider this Alternate Approach
By , for WP 4.2.2

The last in a long series of plugins I've tried purporting to minify and combine JS, CSS, HTML. All have ended up breaking my sites in way or another.

I ended up with a better solution: WordFence cache + MaxCDN. That combination is ultra-easy to setup and provides the best speeds I've experienced, consistently less than 1 second for a 1.3 MB home page. I don't care if the PageSpeed score or the Pingdom performance grade isn't 90%; those benchmarks are simply suggestions to improve SPEED.

Speed is the big win and I can get that easily with the caching and CDN solution mentioned. Try it out. You'll need WordFence, CDN Linker, and an account at MaxCDN. Totally worth it in my opinion.

Faster, but Google says slower on Mobiles
By , for WP 4.2.2

It's a fine plugin. It looks like it speeded up my site according to various speed tests. But Google Page Speed mobiles dropped from 70 to 56. And it says it doesn't minify Java script.

Increase Google Page Score but increases actual load time

javascript part was great, broke my css
By , for WP 3.9.2

html and javascript compression worked awesome - but once I clicked on the css checkbox - I got the white screen and wouldn't even let me in cpanel - had to get server team to remove plugin. I put plugin back and only use it for javascript and html, but I'm super bummed it won't help me with css, because I really need it !!!!
