    Hi, I’m working on better Google Speed insight score. The only css file that shows for both mobile and desktop version is wp-content/plugins/ajax-search-pro/css/style.basic.css?mq=YmXPGw
    How can I change it and minify it?

    Hi,

    The best way to minify your site assets is to perhaps use an asset minification plugin. Almost every cache solutions support minification, I usually recommend Autoptimize for that. It also nicely merges multiple CSS files to make even more faster page load.

    If you use the conditional CSS loader, then it might not be possible to minify the CSS, as they are already loaded asynchronously.

    Hi,

    I think I will add an option to minify the CSS during the saving for the next release, and minify the base CSS file as well, to solve this.

    For the JS: If you disable them one-by-one and refresh the front-end where the search is visible, it will alert you if one of the scripts is required, but disabled during or before search. But in short:
    – Ploaroid JS – needed when using the polaroid layout: https://i.imgur.com/m7pOcjs.png
    – Isotope JS – needed when using the isotopic results layout: https://i.imgur.com/ezHW0V7.png
    – NoUI slider – needed when using slider option elements: https://i.imgur.com/ih3SjaW.png
    – DatePicker – needed when using a date picker: https://i.imgur.com/ljvZlZv.png
    – Chosen script – needed when using a searchable taxonomy term or custom field drop-down: https://i.imgur.com/a7PacNB.png

    These should help.

    Thanks, do you have any recommendations in general so the search will work faster?

    Hi,

    While the speed is mostly dependent on the server configuration, there are numerous ways to optimize the configuration: Documentation – Fine tuning the search configuration

    Hi,

    Yes, it does, the files should be minified by default.

    Excelent. So there’s no option for minify, it will be minified by default? Is it compatible with newest WP 4.9, 4.9.1, 4.9.2? Is it safe just to replace it manually via FTP?

    Hi!

    My mistake, it is not turned on by default, you can enable it here: https://i.imgur.com/BNkeen6.png
    After that change, the instance CSS files should be minified automatically. Do not replace anything via FTP. This is a basic minification, it is compatible with any WP version.

    I meant manual update via FTP as I had some problems while auto update

    For updates, it is okay. Just make sure to de-activate then activate the plugin after FTP updates to sync the options data with the files.
