Autoptimize is our preferred plugin for reducing page size and improving load time, we use it right here on SiteOrigin.com. By default, Autoptimize excludes the WordPress uploads folder in its concatenation and minification processes. The SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle stores its stylesheets in the uploads folder. This means that up until now, Widgets Bundle generated stylesheets haven’t been concatenation and minified by Autoptimize. In our latest release of the Widgets Bundle, version
1.15.6 we’ve added a filter which prevents the exclusion of the
/uploads/siteorigin-widgets/ folder, ensuring Widgets Bundle stylesheets are concatenation and minified. If you’re using Autoptimize, you’ll already be taking advantage of this enhancement. If not, we recommend you give it a try.
