But Script Merge offers more than just merging and compressing files. It also adds support for WebP, data URIs (using images not as separate files, but as data-streams within CSS), HTML-compression and third party minification-libraries.
The backend-options allow you to be extremely flexible: You can exclude specific CSS- and JS-files, but also exclude specific pages (components, Menu-Items).
This is one of the most powerful tools you will need to optimize your Joomla! site.
Note: If you encounter any issue with this plugin, go to Joomla's Plugin Manager and moved this system plugin to the end of the system plugins.

Took me from over 30s down to under 3s
Up and running just by enabling it. I found it easy to tweak the plugin settings, some trial and error as the temlate uses less compliler so I would recommend that for some template providers that the template css is excluded.
All in all, very easy to use.
This plugin is well written with the flexibility to be useful where I want it and how I want it used. It will require a little tweaking as per the sites needs but does the job very well when done.
Massive improvements in pagespeed results from 60/100 to 99/100 and Yslow results from 50/100 to 91/100 when used in combination with server mod_deflate enabled and htaccess setup correctly to utilise Gzip compression.
Support was not needed at anytime as the plugin is self explanatory by mousing over the options.
This plugin is the icing on the cake to speed up your site.
Well done to the developer and thank you for such a thoughtful and useful plugin.
Google page speed go's up from 54 to 99 score!!!
Hello this is the best optimazation plugin for joomla out there!!!
I just adjusted/improved the plugin and put that version on there forum. it now compress js and css verry good. and i added 7 options to the plugin so you can now 1: reverse order js/css combined files. 2: put defer on or of. 3: exlude defer for specific pages. 4: choose which compression code you like to use. 5: minify css. 6: minify js. 7: position js where ever you like. The adjusted plugin and component you can download from the yireo forum: Scripmerge extended nonvalid css and js(SOLVED)
It is not yet a official release because the want to test it first. Be quick Dont miss it.
what is the problem !
This is the review-section of the JED, not a support-forum. If you need support, it's best to click on the support-button. To answer your question, there is no backend-page because this component does not need one.
If you require support, it's best to post at our support forum. A bad review is not something we can fix.
