Tutorial: Get WP Minify to Process Your JS and CSS Files

This tutorial only applies to WP Minify pre-2.0.

You should use this tutorial if you still notice some Javascript and CSS files not being processed by WP Minify after activating the plugin.


WP Minify only sees scripts and styles enqueued via the wp_enqueue_script() and wp_enqueue_style() function. So if your theme or plugin does not use these functions for printing Javascript or CSS references, then WP Minify will not include them into the Minifying process.

WP Minify WordPress Plugin

I have previously reviewed the Minify PHP application and found that the only drawback it had for a WordPress user was that it was semi-tedious to integrate with WordPress.

This plugin helps you easily integrate the Minify engine into your WordPress blog. Once enabled, this plugin will combine and compress JS and CSS files to improve page load time. Read on…

Minify (CSS and Javascript Optimizer) Review

A few days ago I read a post on Webmaster Source about Minify, ‘a PHP5 app that can combine multiple CSS or Javascript files, compress their contents (i.e. removal of unnecessary whitespace/comments), and serve the results with HTTP encoding (gzip/deflate) and headers that allow optimal client-side caching.’

Being the enthusiast that I am, I decided to implement it on my blog. This post will report my experiences integrating Minify with my WordPress blog.
