Boost SiteOrigin Plugin Performance with Autoptimize

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.

    Hi Andrew,
    Thanks for the update!
    I have been using both SiteOrigin and Autoptimize in my blog as they are both great plugins. I look forward to further speed improvements and collaborations with other plugins as well :).

    Is This Plugin Included in Site origin Theme or We have to Download it?

      Hi Praveen, thanks for posting. It’s a separate plugin. Looks like you’re already using it on the site linked in your comment. All the best :)
