Frontend Optimizations in SG Optimizer

Minify HTML, JS, CSS and combine Google Fonts

Enabling all these features will greatly improve the loading speeds of your site by removing all unnecessary characters from your CSS and JS files as well as the HTML output of your site. The plugin will also combine all Google Fonts requests used on your website into one. That will reduce the websites’ pages actual size and improve the loading time of your pages.

You can also exclude particular files from the different optimizations if necessary.

Combine CSS and JS files

Combining CSS and JS files will reduce the requests made towards your website and thus improve its loading speed. The plugin will keep the scripts and styles in their original location after the combination for best compatibility with other plugins.

Combining JavaScript files may cause issues with scripts that require certain order of execution. This is why we advise you to check the frontend of your website after you enable this optimization.

Remove Query Strings From Static Resources

The standard functionality of the WordPress script loading process is to append a version of the script that’s loaded. Removing those version parameters improve the caching of your pages both by a CDN that you may use and your visitors’ browsers. Note that removing the query strings will not stop these resources from being loaded anew once you make changes to them, so you should not worry about that.

Disable Emojis

By default, WordPress will load scripts to automatically detect and generate emojis in your content. Disabling this option will stop that script from loading, saving some precious time. Note, that most of the modern browsers will still convert symbols like ; ) to a smiley automatically.
