Site Performance, Core Enhancements, SEO & Metadata, Performance, Site speed

Speed up your Joomla! website instantly with JCH Optimize. This plugin provides all the front-end optimizations you need to optimize your website download speed and is the most popular in its category on Joomla!. These optimizations are applied automatically based on the configuration of the plugin and reduces both your website page size and number of http requests, and results in lower network bandwidth requirement and faster page loading times. Web page optimizations can be a daunting, technical and complicated affair but the plugin makes it easy with preset automatic settings and robust configuration features to ensure your pages are optimized with little effort and mitigated chances of conflicts. Results vary per site but typical results are significant increased scores on Gtmetrix or PageSpeed Insights. JCH Optimize provides enhanced user experience for site visitors and can favourably affect website traffic and Google ranking.


Major Features

  • Combine and minify javascript/css files respectively
  • Provides 6 preset automatic settings for easy configuring
  • Combine select background images into sprite
  • Adds missing width/height attributes to images
  • Can defer javascript or place at end of page for optimized download

..and more!

Good documentation, except for one funny bug where the text does not display well on Firefox. So I used the Edge browser instead to read it.
