Nice work GLWS
I am interested in using this plugin but was wondering if it has the following features which I am also looking for as part of the plugin.
1) Ability on a page/post to specify an override to re-enable a script for that page so in effect we could dequeue across the site but not dequeue on specific pages.
2) The ability to do the same thing for the admin area as many of the front end enqueued scripts are not required by the backend and cause the admin area to be very slow.
If these options are available or if you could add them quickly then I would look at buying this plugin and also for future client sites.
Thank you for browsing the plugin and providing valuable feedback. I like this idea very much and have already started working on it. I can update the progress by next two days. The ability to ‘exclude’ pages or posts will be added for dequeued items.
The backend dequeue option can also be added, but that will be too risky if someone dequeues main core files accidentally. Even the JS file which is used by this plugin itself could be dequeued, thereby malfunctioning the plugin. It will be like cutting a branch on tree on which we are sitting. But I will give it a try with some restricted options. Thanks once again for valuable input.
Thanks for the quick reply and starting on the additions. Regarding the admin area, I fully agree with you that this could be really bad if used incorrectly but maybe you look at this as a separate plugin (would be happy to pay again) so that those who know what they are doing can use it as an addition to your current plugin. The way around the backend becoming unaccessible which is the risk is that you either have a separate URL that is displayed on the settings page for your plugin that the user goes to and it disables the backend dequeue or you have it that if you pass a parameter on any URL it looks for a secret key (random when the plugin is first created) that if correct causes the dequeue for the backend to turn off. For example www.aaa.com?dequeue-disable=234jhu2dh2AS
Thank you for purchasing the plugin. Your feedback has been very helpful in improving it’s functionality. I am able to add ‘exclude’ options per dequeue list item (including post and pages). If it goes fine, I will release an update very soon.
The idea of separate plugin for back-end seems good as it will be a direct approach without conflicting front end functionality. I will look into this too once the front-end features are done. Thanks once again.
The backend scripts dequeuer is available for sale now. https://codecanyon.net/item/scripts-dequeuer-backend/17656921
Hey Saurabh – I am interested in trying this out but is there anyway I can pretest the benefits of dequeuing on the site speed of my website i.e. i dont want to pay for this and not see any benefit.
also, your ahref on “message box at http://codecanyon.net/user/saurabhsharma, or comment on the item comments ” has the comma included which is resulting in a 404
Thanks for browsing the plugin. You can check site speed on any online checker like pagespeed tests or GTMetrix. Then subtract the file size and load time of files (which you wish to dequeue) from the total load time and total page size. That shall give you an approximate idea about how much your site will improve.
You can also check by manually dequeuing those files in theme’s functions.php using some code snippet. But above method will work fine too.
P.S. Thank you for reporting the broken link. I will correct it.
Can this be used on the admin side of WP also ?
We have alot of plugins that use various versions of FontAwesome and Jquery that we would like to reduce to a single instance of each being called.
Thank you for browsing the plugin. I am working on a separate plugin for admin dequeue feature. It will be available in few days depending upon approval time. Hope to see you as buyer of that plugin.
The backend dequeue plugin is available now. Please check out at https://codecanyon.net/item/scripts-dequeuer-backend/17656921
Hello that benefits me this plugin, I use wp rocket on my website.
Thank you for browsing the plugin. WP Rocket is a caching plugin, which gives many features for site optimization. But it doesn’t have dequeue option for scripts and stylesheets. Scripts Dequeuer is another tool in the field of site optimization. It will work seamlessly with caching plugins too.
I am interested in both of your plugins (for Frontend and Backend). I know this might be a hard question to answer but can you give me some examples of what type of performance increases you are seeing after applying your plugin?
Thank you for browsing the plugin. I have created a demo site for showing plugin performance. Check out the following links:
1. Page with redundant CSS files and multiple instances of jQuery:
2. Page optimized using Scripts Dequeuer frontend.:
Comparison of performance improvement:
The main difference will be seen in “Serve resources from a consistent URL”. You can see that it improved from F(32) to A(100).
Screenshot of redundant files: http://prntscr.com/cdy6xt
Screenshot of main improvement: http://prntscr.com/cdy72n
This is one example case. Files may be different on your site, depending upon number of plugins, and the files added by current theme. Improvements are significant only if redundant files are more in number.
Hi, just bought and installed Scripts Dequeuer but doesn’t detect ANY scripts!
I suspect it has something to do with https
Can you help please? The site’s at: https://thestatemanagementstory.org
Can you let me know what URLs are being added for the detection process? OR you have kept it as default? If you can send me your site URL and login details at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com, I will check and fix it.
What makes this plugin different from Plugin Organizer on wp.org? (I can see your interface is much better.)
Plugin Organizer can selectively disable plugin on front end and back end. But the interface isn’t good compared to yours. I’m interested to see how your plugin will grow time to time. Perhaps I’ll buy one soon.
Thank you for consideration.
I’m using WP Rocket with cdn from keycdn. My css/js files are served from keycdn. Is there any compatibility concern I should consider?
In that case, once the CSS and JS files are dequeued, you will need to update the cache/resources so that previous instance is removed. It works with caching plugins and CDN without any issue.
this frontend also look good, does the plugin will let us know which script or css had a same name? do they had sorting for much easier to find it? someone who work with alot of themes and plugin might be difficult for them to find it which script or css that cause redundant, because they need select that manually right? this plugin had potential.. but not sure if I see something like this before in free section wordpress plugin.. maybe this one is different?
The plugin will list script handle name, source and it’s dependencies. Right now there is no sorting option for the generated table. You will need to use browser’s Search feature (Ctrl + f) or scroll manually to check files. Sometimes, handle name may be different, and even the source file may be different. So you need to find out which one to disable. The plugin will only list them.
As a precautionary measure, the plugin highlights some files with red background. These are the files on which other files are dependent. You can force dequeue these files too using Plugin settings option.
I can not confirm if a free plugin with similar feature is available. But at the time of creating this plugin there was no such plugin in free or premium repos.
