Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations Is in Beta Stage  

What does it do?

This mod is designed to automatically merge and minify all CSS and Javascript on the board and cache the result. This helps reduce requests to the server and reduces bandwidth usage.

Installation
  1. Upload contents of upload folder to forum
  2. Create a folder named 'cache' in the forum
  3. Make sure the web server has the appropriate permissions to write to the cache folder
  4. Import product-combineit.xml into vBulletin
  5. Edit options under vBulletin options to reflect how you want the mod to act and to activate it

Notes

This may not work with highly customized CSS or Javascript. If the script can't write to the cache folder this mod will not function. If you find problems with the order a particular script is executing in, add it's filename as a stop word and it'll load as usual.

This does not work.

As the person above I have just a small css file, missing all of the relevant css, and no call to cache in the source.

Funny thing is all those giving praise I went to your sites and none have it working.

Also the javascript in the member.php is disabled, so no tabs are displayed. Even if I disable very function in the vb settings. I'm not a developer for that I really can't measure any speed increase.
Felt speed increase=0
But I wish it would, so keep on working on it.

but there is no such file in page source !

can you give optimum settings?
The optimal settings are in the screenshot. I'll take a look at your forum a little later and see if I can work out what might be creating an issue.

If you'd like to show me your settings I'd love to see if I can work out what the issue is for you. It's not exactly meant to be the most novice of mods.

The speed increase from the mod is meant to be aimed at first time visitors more so than repeat visitors who would always have those files cached. It also aims to reduce bandwidth on those files in the first place with minifying them. If you'd like to compare you can always install the firefox page speed mod google provides and test it from there. The motivation for this mod was googles recent public expression that they are rewarding pages that load faster, and one of their recommendations is to limit and minify the javascript/css on page, and combine them into fewer files, of which this mod does.

FWIW, I just updated the version to now allow people to only minify CSS in case there are too many Javascript issues.

For those of you who want to see an example forum www.menewsha.com though CSS is the only one being minified right now while I make some modifications.

I thought it was supposed to merge the css as well as minify.
