    Hi,

    WP Super Cache is great,
    but I also want to use one of the WP Minify plugins or preferably both.

    1. One "Minify" is for WP Super Cache.
    This Minify compresses the static html files that Super Cache makes and serves to users.
    Load time 3-10% faster than only using WP Super Cache.
    - http://lyncd.com/2008/11/minify-for-wordpress/
    - http://lyncd.com/wpscmin/

    2. WP Minify written by Thaya Kareeson.
    This is probably the "Minify" that people think about when "Minify" is mentioned.
    This compress JS and CSS code on a blog.
    - http://omninoggin.com/wordpress-plugins/wp-minify-wordpress-plugin/
    - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-minify/

    My question is this:
    Does anyone know if both "Minifys" are safe to use with WP Super Cache?
    I'm concerned if "WP Minify written by Thaya Kareeson" will f*** up the blog
    if installed, since this compression is not handled by WP Super Cache. Or could
    it be that this "Minify" is compressed first and then SC compresses everything? (in that case it should work...)

    Thoughts? Experiences? Anyone?

    Thanks.

    P.S: I read that "WP Minify written by Thaya Kareeson" is being or has been integrated into "W3 Total Cache".
    But anyway I'm sticking with SC because my blogs don't go over 1000 posts/pages, and some tests I've read
    shows that they are almost the same in regards to page load speed, "W3" might use a bit less CPU usage. :croc:

    I went to wp total cache because it has the edge over the others in therm of total performance optimization


    Plus, install, activate and ready to go :D?


    Have a nice day

    Heh. Total cache vs. super cache is like a religious war. Minify works with super cache but in my experience it broke some themes and not others. I think it also broke wordtube.

    For my work Total Cache works fine. Haven't had time to experiment a bit more.

    FROM THEIR FAQ:

    How do I know my blog is being cached?

    Enable debugging in the plugin settings page and load the log file in a new browser tab. Then view your blog while logged in and logged out. You should see activity in the log. View the source of any page on your site. When a page is first created, you'll see the text "Dynamic page generated in XXXX seconds." and "Cached page generated by WP-Super-Cache on YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS" at the end of the source code. On reload, a cached page will show the same timestamp so wait a few seconds before checking. In legacy caching mode, if you have compression enabled, the text "Compression = gzip" will be added. If compression is disabled and the page is served as a static html file, the text "super cache" will be added. The only other way to check if your cached file was served by PHP script or from the static cache is by looking at the HTTP headers. PHP cached pages will have the header "WP-Super-Cache: Served supercache file from PHP". Legacy cached files will have the header, "WP-Super-Cache: Served legacy cache file". I used the Live HTTP Headers extension for Firefox to examine the headers. You should also check your cache directory in wp-content/cache/supercache/hostname/ for static cache files. If the plugin rules are missing from your .htaccess file, the plugin will attempt to serve the super cached page if it's found. The header "WP-Super-Cache: Served supercache file from PHP" if this happens.

    I can recommend combo WP super cache + Autoptimize. It's less buggy than wp minify. And results are better than w3 total cache
