Merge & Minify & Refresh

Compatible since version 2.1.0

Very Important Note

Do not use this plugin while developing your website, else you will end up chnaging options and not seeing the effect on your website.

First things first, we need to make sure to Merge and Minify Wyzi Theme CSS and JS files. We have tested many plugins out there in the market, and we found that this plugin:

Merge + Minify + Refresh

is the best free plugin that works perfectly with Wyzi Theme or deliver minified and merged CSS and JS without affecting CSS and javascript file.

This plugin is not a required plugin in WYZI theme, but you can add this plugin to your theme installation.

This plugin will have a huge effect on the number of requests your website makes to load, causing your pages to load much faster. What is so nice about this plugin also, is that it auto-refreshes when needed.

You can find this plugin configuration in SettingsMerge + Minify + Refresh Settings.

We recommend not to change any of its default settings.
