BUG: minified files are not being placed in the footer area

BUG: minified files are not being placed in the footer area, both js and css

  • James Morris

    Hello Ben,

    I hope you are well today.

    I've just tested Minification with relocation to the footer on my dev site and any file I've instructed Hummingbird to relocate was successfully relocated.

    Perhaps there is an issue on your site that is preventing this feature from working correctly? Are you testing this on a fresh install with minimal plugins installed? If not, would you please run a plugin conflict test to verify that there isn't a problem there?


    Best regards,

    Just want to know the "scenarios" you are testing.

    1. Are you testing sub blogs and the main blog in the multi-site environment
    2. Are you testing with domain mapping
    3. Are testing with https on a mapped domain
    4. Are you testing the use of "child themes" more than just special upfront themes.
    5. What happens when @import is used in the child theme

    So I just listed off a matrix of about 15+ scenarios to test...what are we testing....what are the scenarios that HAVE been tested and are known to work.

    Upfront themes seems to be working... in a non https environment....but there are far more theme scenarios to test. PLEASE tell me what are other scenarios that have been tested.

    Hello Ben,

    I apologize for the delay in getting back to you about this issue.

    To reply to your questions:

    I have personally tested 1-4 and I know for certain other staff have. We put every plugin through extensive testing prior to release. 5 I'm not 100% certain of as I never use @import statements. Please see the following article on why @import is bad: https://www.stevesouders.com/blog/2009/04/09/dont-use-import/

    However, throughout all of our testing, it is possible that we may have missed something. It's impossible for us to cover every possible configuration and environment. That is why we welcome bug reports from our members. :wink:

    If you believe there is a reproducible bug with Hummingbird, we'll be happy to look into this issue further using our standard troubleshooting methods.

    First, could you please run a plugin conflict test as outlined in the following article? This will eliminate the possibility of a conflict with another plugin. https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/using-wpmu-dev/getting-support/

    If that does not lead to a solution, could you please enable WP_DEBUG and provide us with the output of your debug.log file?

    To enable WP_DEBUG, change the following line in your wp-config.php file:

    define('WP_DEBUG', false);

    To this:

    // Enable WP_DEBUG mode
    define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
    // Enable Debug logging to the /wp-content/debug.log file
    define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );
    // Disable display of errors and warnings
    define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false );
    @ini_set( 'display_errors', 0 );

    After you've visited the pages that are causing you problems, please go to wp-content/ on your server via FTP and download the debug.log file to your local computer. Then, open that file with a text editor like notepad (Windows), GEdit (Linux), or TextEdit (Mac). You can then paste the contents of that file at http://pastebin.com/ and share the URL of the pasted output with us so we can examine it further.

    I look forward to seeing the results of your tests.

    Best regards,

    James Morris
