Release Notes:

Now works ONLY with Elgg 1.8.  Versions for 1.7 and below are no longer supported.

  • ghumanz

    Is that possible to minify HTML too with this plugin.....

  • Hekolo

    Working great on my Elgg 1.8.01 installation! Recommended!

  • ToddP

    I'm new to Elgg, but this plugin is EXCELLENT!

  • Tom

    We installed and indeed, at first, site was quicker. But then after one day...slow...slow. Disabling this minify and boom... quick again...  Any ideas what this might be ???

  • Cash

    You only want minify on if simplecache is turned on. If not, it is running minify on every page load.

  • rbruhn

    Not sure why, but this actually slows my site down. I have simple cache enabled. I see the minified files and about 40k being saved in YSlow. Not sure why but definitely slower.


  • Stumpy

    Hey thanks for the great plugin, it's really apprecited.  recomended!

  • Nikolay

    When I turn on the minfy plugin ajax query 'ajax/view/js/languages?language=en' response too long (more then 4 times slower if minify is turned off).

    What should I do to increase it's speed? Mybe it's connected with ?

  • rohonupe99

    when this plugin in enabled, you cannot click on any of the dropdown menus in the administration area (useres, statistics, utilities, etc...)

  • rohonupe99

    TinyMCE features do not show when Minify is enabled

  • Cochise

    Im not see any of these bugs, but the site becomes slower.

    The page load increase from 6-15 secs to 40-50 secs

  • Tom

    Strange minify does not work.... anybody has a clue why it does not for some and seems to work for others?

  • opencook

    im looking for some basic plugin which my elgg really needs. now im reading page number 34 of 35 and found my first needed plugin! great thing. in every other project i make this. but elgg is to complex to realise it self....thanks

  • Ron Wallace

    Anyone know if this minify .3 is suppose to work with elgg 1.8.8?  It appears to slow our site down. For almost all pages a white page appears between every elgg page.

  • Sparky

    Getting a bit stuck - unzipped, uploaded to mod directory, activated - brings up a 404? Any ideas?

  • Miks101

    This plugin increased my cpu load by 3 times!! Had to delete it.....

  • SDBradio

    @miks101 agreed, mine also.  I'm running 1.8.8 | Plesk | Chrome Browser and this slowed every page load way down

    @Ron Wallace - same issues here.  4-5 second delay (blank white page) while navigating in between pages, refresh, etc...

    Had to delete this plugin...

  • kisssssss4ever

    I like this plugin, but please friends specially experts inform me. Is this okay or not? Because some negative comments I am reading this plugin is making sites more slower rather than faster.

    Experts leave your comments.... I do not want to install this untill I am 100% sure about this but I would love to have this plugin... Just worried and thinking shall I use or not ?


  • costakisc

    slowed my site to a crawl, seemedc like dial up speed almost


  • kisssssss4ever

    hahaha costakisc thanks for your personal experince and as you know I trust you. So better I stay away from this plugin :)

    Please try to clear up your tables from database so your site would be up and running once again.

    Take care

  • costakisc

    @kiss, thats just personal experience, everybodys site is different so you never know.  I would never put down a plugin, what works for some doesnt work for others.

    and clear up tables?  site is up and running, if you see it screwed up from time to time, its me playing around with code.  and got your pm will look into it


  • kisssssss4ever

    Here I am 100% agree costakisc with you, you are right some plugins work fine for some people and some are not. It could be due to web hosting or problems in editing somewhere in the core files. 

    To be honest this is very nice plugin a different one, I am going to try :)

  • DhrupDeScoop

    hey everybody, good mawning etc. i was gonna write up my usual 8c worth of prayers here. but then rescinded the decision and figured wat the heck ! might as well give the honor and opportunity to mister evan winslow the real developer for dissa plugin to wakey, grab hos coffee, get motivated, come here and spend some real quality time helping out his 'customers' & lolz & sorry for bothering y'all, but i do sincerely hope that evan winslow cares enough to come here and show us all how a community should be run - y'know - gpl, open source, sharing !?

  • DhrupDeScoop

    ohhhh forogot my 8 cents! dwang !

    Minify shud work well - most of the time for mist of the people.

    And.. K4E kinda said it 100% ! --
    just like everything else that you're paying @there for -
    * it depends on your server/hosting *

    e.g. server power that is way too little will likely suffer
    when we put on 'performance toys' which need extra CPU ;-)
    if your 'hosting' has whatever rules and traps about cpu usage


  • costakisc

    @dhrup absolutely, probably why mine slowed down so much, my site is just on my own personal server, my server is just for testing purposes and not to run my site live, just something for me to use as a learning experience.
