Gave it a go...
By , for WP 4.5.3

Hi,

Gave it a go as I was getting less than 50/100 from PageInsights complaining about minifying css and js etc, usual stuff.

Tried for hours testing either which way, no success

Then I saw the last time this plugin was updated was 2014

Nice idea though, clean GUI ;-)

AMAZING SPEED BOOSTER!

The only plugin out of many that actually does the nitty gritty that really make a difference!
NOT FOR EVERYONE! Some technical understanding of what the plugin does is required.

speed booster pack not for everyone
By , for WP 4.5.2

Even though stated at WP 4.4.3, it has worked great with 4.5.2. I combined speed booster pack with a static caching plugin and one other. And no it is now W3 total cache or the other big two. But his caching plugin rocks.
Speed Booster Pack is not for every theme. The more bells and whistles the less you should use speed booster pack IMO and from my tests. And don't mindlessly go clicking all the options, that will not work. Stick with the left side speed options and the more speed except leave unchecked disable css for mobile. I have twenty sixteen turning out insights moble of 90+ speed with 100/100 user satisfaction regularly.

While twenty sixteen does not have all the bells and whistles of other themes, Google is not measuring bells and whistles. Google is measuring page load speed.

How about GTMetrix of 97 page load 91 yslow and 0.4 load speed by reducing the junk woff font and google fonts api calls reduced the page requests on one site from 17 to 9. Less page requests means more page load speed.

So does Speed Booster Pack work. From my testing on 5 sites, I would say yes if used intelligently and in conjunction with a good static html caching plugin and one other.

The only thing the plugin author could do would to be add inclusion boxes for those misc query strings in static resources that it does not now catch and same for misc js script to defer parsing.

Seems legit

I read Speed Booster Pack is the deal, but I am afraid to test it out on my website since I read a lot of 1 star reviews.

There's a bug with this plugin and WP 4.5
By , for WP 4.5

Images on your homepage will not show up if you use this plugin on WP 4.5. Deactivating the plugin solves the problem.

Works Great
By , for WP 4.4.2

The plugin does what it says it does, and in combination with W3 Total Cache, and CloudFlare, I've seen some major speed improvements.

Actually worked wonders
By ,

I've tried so many other methods, tried all the other popular suggested plugin for minifying and caching this worked the best for me. Easy 5 stars

Unfortunately no support from author
By , for WP 4.4.2

We have seen there's no support from the author here, their website is down. Seems like a great plugin, but it conflicts with some plugins, even manages to deactivate the visibility of Revolution slider... hope you guys improve (enable) support.
