FOR ELGG 1.7 SUPPORT, DOWNLOAD VERSION 0.2
Why install Minify?
Performance. Minify will noticeably improve the page load time of practically every page on your Elgg-powered site. Better performance means higher user satisfaction.
How do I get Minify working on my Elgg-powered site?
Just drop it in your mod directory and enable it from the admin panel like any other plugin. No special settings; no tricky customizations; no complicated build process. Feel free to verify that it is working (and see the true impact for your site) by using an inspector like firebug.
Will Minify increase my server's CPU usage?
Not by any appreciable amount if you have Elgg's simplecache turned on. This is because the minification will only have to happen one time. Simplecache stores the crunched versions in static files on your server. Therefore, subsequent requests for the js/css will pull the stored versions, and Minify will not have to execute again. Let me put it this way -- it took you longer to read the question this explanation was written to address than it will take Minify to crunch your files for you.
Will Minify harm my source files?
Absolutely not. Minify crunches your files in memory "on-the-fly" so the source files are left intact.
"This speed up my side, big thanks for your work, fantastic :)"
"Holy Crap!!! This makes a bunch of stuff run a lot quicker, feels like a I just completed a massive upgrade. Wicked!!!"
"Many thanks Evan... this works [like] a treat!"
Now works ONLY with Elgg 1.8. Versions for 1.7 and below are no longer supported.
@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...
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 ?
@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
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 !?
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
