How do I know files are being minified or combined?

May 17, 2018

There are two ways to check:

  1. Go to any URL that is not excluded by either the “Do Not Cache Specific Pages“, “Do Not Cache Specific Post Types“, “Do Not Cache Front Page?“, or “Disable Caching Where Cookies Present?” settings. Right-click anywhere on the page and select “Inspect“. Reload the page. Click on the “Network” tab in the browser Inspector and choose either CSS or Javascript. If you see a list of files ending in “.css.php” or “.js.php” those files are minified. If you see files that look like “67507b4820af342b1252a700bc38bca4-1.css.php” those files are combined.
  2. Go to the Tools tab and enable the “Enable debug mode?” option. Place the shortcode, , in any page editor content, or <?php echo do_shortcode(''); in a PHP theme template file (I like to add it to the footer.php file in the theme), to display SmartCache debug information to logged in administrators. This debug log will describe what the plugin is doing on the page you are viewing.
