- Combine background images in a sprite
- Minify (Compress) and gzip aggregated files
- Exclude individual files or files from extensions that do not aggregate well
- Fixed PHP warnings when either Combine Js/CSS is disabled
- Add ability to add items to multi-select exclude options
- Improved support for popular editors
- Significantly improved the 'Optimize CSS Delivery' option
- If 'url rewriting' is set on auto (default), plugin will detect support and automatically select Yes or No so this check is not made on every download
- Scripts with 'document.write' will only be excluded by default if they are in the body of the page.
- Other minor improvements
Well I thought I'd try it again and I thought I'd just go silly and enable nearly all of the options (combining & minify CSS/JS, place JS at the end etc) and they all worked apart from Minify HTML (which I've since found out was another extension forcing responsive when it didn't need to, so Minify HTML is now working).
I was further impressed when I enabled the plugin to include other extensions (which in my experience is a common thing which breaks these performance extensions) and that worked out of the box, no tweaking, no excluding extensions (and I have a number installed)!
Since then I've bought the Pro version (which at the time of my review is only $5) and enabled the Pro features (which I also highly recommend) and they worked as well.
I did submit a ticket to the devs asking a couple of questions and they were answered within a day and all my questions were answered.
So yes, I can definitely recommend this extension.
The previous site was done years ago and had a very low metrics.
We decided to use the Pro version as it is only $5.
Out of the box the plugin has improved our page loading time by 23%.
We had a question about the use of the tool and got a response within hours of our request.
This plugin is amazing and it will improve your site's performance.
I purchased the plugin (only $5 paid version) and I had a few small issues. All due to my website was a mess.
And every time I´ve been given an OUTSTANDING support. Explaining step by step, where my web failures were and how I had to fix it.
Honestly, I've been very pleased with the purchase and with the friendly and expert attention I received.
I give 5 stars because there was no more!
So we were happy to buy Pro version and test it. And really it worth every cents we put in it.
Pro Automatic settings work like a charm and it is now much more easy to get a very optimized joomla website !
Thank you for so nice work. Keep going.
Though being a UK-based site, we had to install an EU Cookies law script. This was tricky to get to work with JCH Optimize, but the support the provider gave was incredible, helpful, and fixed our minor problem.
A superb result. If you want to save time, I suggest, choose the Pro version.
I would like to say, the support is absolutely incredible. Whenever you post a ticket the support is just there to help you.
Thanks to the team of JCH OPTIMIZE, you rock.
My advice is, do buy the PRO-version and you won't regret it.
And I only am using it with the "average" setting, as I have many extensions that had to be excluded.
But the result is really awesome and my page loads way faster!
I really have to add that the technical support is top notch and very responsive!
Thanks to them for that and keep up the good work!
Gives your site great speed boost. My site scores 25% more points on GTMetrix if JHC Optimize is enabled.
Samuel offers top notch support, he answered every ticked within a couple of hours.
I suggest PRO version, it has more features.
Note: Not being JS and PHP savvy, I found a site backup was my best friend.
