Autoptimize Plugin Review 


WordPress Plugin


Frank Goossens


What Can this Do for Your WordPress Website?

The Autoptimize plugin allows your WordPress website to run more efficiently and hopefully faster.  While caching plugins such as WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache focus on page and object caching, Autoptimize optimizes your css and javascript.  While I’ve had good results using this plugin, it may take you a while to find just the right settings.  Also, while it does help in most cases, there may be some situations where your speed results don’t really change.


Installation and initial setup of the plugin is very easy.  However, you’ll probably have to experiment and tweak the settings to get your best results.

Pros and Cons:


  • Free Version in the WordPress Repository
  • Improves Speed and Performance
  • Compatible with Caching Plugins


  • Not Always a Dramatic Improvement in Speed
  • May Have to Experiment to Find the Best Settings for Your Website

Conclusion and Recommendation:

I use Autoptimize on all of my WordPress websites.  I do find that my website performance is improved with the css and javascript optimization from this plugin.  While it may not solve all performance issues, I am impressed with the development and results you get with Autoptimize.
