How to Troubleshoot WP Minify

WP Minify is supposed to work out of the box for many cases. That being said, there will always be plugins that conflict with WP Minify because of the nature of this plugin. In this post, I will show you how to troubleshoot these issues for yourself before you have to hit the plugin support forum.

How does WP Minify Work?

When activated, the plugin does the following:

  1. WP Minify intercepts theme rendering at the get_header WordPress hook and puts everything that is echoed/outputted from the PHP code into an output buffer.
  2. WP Minify then intercepts theme rendering again at the get_footer WordPress hook to stop the output buffer.
  3. The plugin then evaluates the page content to extract all JavaScripts and stylesheets out.
  4. The minified version of these JavaScripts and stylesheets are then re-injected into the content.
  5. The page content is echoed/outputted as normal.
