Concatenate Javascript and CSS Files with WP Minify

Minimizing the number of HTTP requests is one of the easiest ways to make your website load significantly faster. WP Minify is a WordPress plugin by Thaya Kareeson that combines all Javascript and CSS files into one respective file.

WP Minfy uses the old trick of modifying the output buffer before it is sent to the user. And until all plugins and themes start using wp_enqueue_script and wp_enqueue_style, this will remain the most reliable method of doing it.

I approve this plugin.

    Well, what I wanted to say is that I downloaded and installed this plugin tonight and noticed it messed up my Thumbnail viewer plugin as well as the javascript I had in a text widget for my sidebar ads. It’s like the code disappeared. Maybe you could help me out with the implementation of this thing.

    Also, how would I know if it’s made a difference in loading times?

    Jeff, for testing the performance of your site, use these two Firefox extensions — Firebug and YSlow (an extension to Firebug).

    To detect the cause for problems, have a look at these troubleshooting tips and this list of known problems of Minify, which this plugin uses.
