There are three JS Minification Levels available: Remove Whitespaces, Simple Code Optimization, Advanced Code Optimization. Please find more details about minification levels here.
With enabled Ignore *.min.js Files option already minified JS files (usually contains “min” in the URL) will be skipped during minification.
Minification Source - You can select the File URL option, in case you want to exclude possible file encoding issues.
Click Run Optimization Process.
Set the option to ‘Yes’ to enable CSS code minification. During the minification process all unnecessary characters like new lines, comments and others will be accurately removed without affecting your source code.
Works the same way as the CSS Minification. Extra white spaces, comments, and formatting will be cleaned off the HTML code.
Add Timestamp To URLs of All CSS/JS Files setting adds timestamp to all JS and CSS files to make browser automatically update cached values once they are changed. Useful with high HTTP cache lifetime values.
Large images often increase page loading time. The extension allows optimizing images without losing the quality.
Usually, store owners or admins don`t have enough permissions to install software on the server. So it`s time to contact hosting company or system administrator.
Enable the Automatically Optimize Product Images option to compress on the fly all product images generated by Magento.
Command For Optimization setting allows to set the level of JPG image optimization: 100% / 90% / 80% quality. It is possible to find the necessary correlation between image quality and image weight.
In this tab you can control all errors happening during optimization via the option Write Minification Errors To Log File.
The log file is situated here: MAGENTO_ROOT/var/log/system.log.
To optimize images stored in skin and media folders you need to enter your server via ssh, open Magento root directory and run the command:
php -f shell/amoptimization.php -- optimize
