I’m trying to get the most of server + wordpress performance and these days I’m heavily playing with it as one can read from my past few articles 😉
Today I’ve come across three other plugins which in many cases could be beneficial and bring a good performance increase in wordpress, this are:
- WP-Minify – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-minify/
- HeadJS Loader – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/headjs-loader/
- Scripts Gzip – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/scripts-gzip/
WP-Minify – does combine all JS and CSS script into one consolidated compressed script or style as well removes any duplicate script resources and hence could have positive impact on performance
Script Gzip – merges and compresses the CSS and JS links on page, the plugin does not have caching functionality. The plugin doesn’t have much configuration options which I find as a good thing
To find out what works best for you its a best practice if the website speed load time is tested after loading each of the plugins and with all of them enabled and configured, finally for best results just leave only the plugins or a combination of them which gives the lowest page responce times.
