This plugin is meant to help clean and resolve front and back end issues when using instances of jQuery alongside the Mootools libraries. WHAT IT DOES OUT-OF-THE BOX calls jQuery and jQuery UI libraries from the Google CDN (with or without protocol) - but you can do it locally too, places jQuery libraries after MooTools calls for perfect compatibility, adds the noConflict() code alongside the jQuery library call, strips out extra jQuery and jQuery UI libraries, including the noConflict() calls added by other modules or plugins, lets you choose jQuery UI basic styling or custom theme. WHAT YOU CAN TWEAK disable MooTools libraries tentatively in the frontend, enable or disable the plugin in specific portions of the site, from template to single page, use reporting to get feedback on what the plugin engine has done, add or remove scripts and stylesheets, strip blank lines left by the modifications made to the page, prevent some libraries to be stripped out, modify the way the engine works by default (do not add or remove noConflict() code...), ... Try the new jQuery Easy Profiles for Joomla! 3+ that allows multiple configurations to work seamlessly for different parts of a site. Speed up your pages and limit your server load.

Cache Cleaner - clean cache fast with 1 click. With Cache Cleaner you can clean your cache fast and easily via a link in your Joomla! Administrator! If you are editing an article - for instance - and want to see the changes in the frontend, you first have to clean the cache. Normally this means having to go to the Joomla! Cache Manager, select all cache types and delete them. This is very annoying and requires a lot of clicks and waiting time. Cache Cleaner gives you a quick link in the top right of your Joomla! Administrator (status bar), which will clean all cache by simply clicking on it. It doesn't need to reload the page either, because it uses ajax to do this in the background. Cache Cleaner can also clean the temp (tmp) folder with just one click. See the Cache Cleaner system plugin settings for some cool extra features...

ImageRecycle is an automatic Image and PDF content optimizer for Joomla website. Your customers are waiting for your pages to load, it can takes long, especially on mobile devices. Even content is served fast by the server, slow connection can make your users leaving. People are impatient in front a slow loading website, that's the result of a recent study, 4 second loading causing 24% of visitors to leave (Source statistica.com.). Content optimization is more efficient than any other optimization tool. Joomla image optimization Images can represent from 60% to 80% of a page weight, so an optimization can accelerate your page loading by x3 or more. With an average of 25% of users that leave your website after 4 second of loading page, this is something crucial for your online business. And it's even more important on mobile devices were connection are usually slower. Reduce image and pdf, not quality The jpg, png, gif optimization algorithm is capable of reducing the image size by up to 85% (5x +), while the resulting photos are visually identical to the originals. We believe that image and pdf compression is a matter preserving the quality then reduce the size. Reducing the image and pdf size can be done using a massive compression of data and result a worsened quality. We detect already compressed media and return original files. Main features: Compress automatically new images & pdf Compress automatically existing images & PDF Run a background optimization of all your images and get notified when it's done Generate PDF report of your websites optimization Connect ImageRecycle account and sub-account from component admin Image automatic resizing Define an optimization quality images per media type Define a min-max size to optimize Optimize png, jpg, gif Define optimization quality per file type, jpg, png, gif

If async is not present and defer is present: The script is executed when the page has finished parsingIf async is present: The script is executed asynchronously with the rest of the page (the script will be executed while the page continues the parsing) Improve your page loading time by allowing javascript loading asynchronously You will see the difference with YSlow and Google Page speed ranking but your visitors will thank you for providing a speedy website. When a browser loads a webpage, it will start by loading external Javascript and CSS ressources before loading the html and render it's content. If neither async or defer is present: The script is fetched and executed immediately, before the browser continues parsing the page This will improve your global page loading time However, this is not applicable to all scripts as you want to make sure the script is loaded while some other script or inline script will call it. Usually, if your jQuery inline scripts are called within a jQuery(document).ready() declaration, you can safely load the javascript file asynchronously.

Page Cache Extended generates copies of the rendered pages and loads the entire output on further requests from the previously generated cache files. By loading the content from static files, no database queries have to be processed. This improves the loading speed greatly! This plugin is based on the core plugin "Page Cache" but was extended with useful features. You can specify which pages should be cached with the help of an exclusion list for components and URLs. It is also possible to use the list like a white list to include the selected components or URLs. The HTML code in the cached files can be minified to improve the loading speed even further. HTML comments (e.g. copyright references) can be kept in the optimized code. In addition, you can set a specific cache time independent of the global cache time which can be set in the Global Configuration. PCE saves the complete HTML output additionally already compressed in the gzip format as a separated file. If the browser of the visitor supports the gzip encoding, then the data can be returned immediately without the time consuming compression process. The plugin supports the clearing of the cache directly in the frontend by a self-defined token. Individual pages can be specifically updated by entering the token in the URL. Thus, not all cached pages need to be purged completely. Page Cache Extended, in combination with Device Specific Content (DSC), can create device-specific cache files (mobile, tablet and desktop). For this, DSC simply has to be installed additionally. PCE automatically detects the installation and uses DSC to create device-specific static files.
