JA Compress plugin, developed to provide optimization / compression of CSS and JS files, so as to speed up sites is coming up soon. It provides functionality to use two open source libraries, one is Minify and another one is SmartOptimizer

Features:

  • Choose between the two libraries to achieve the best performance.
  • Option to exclude single or multiple CSS / JS files. This is quite helpful, as not all the files like to be compressed or optimized.
  • Option to check server cache or client cache.
  • Option to choose optimization, Combine CSS files or use both options together.
  • If you are not a JAEC member or JA Developer member, use JAEC20OFF coupon code to avail $ 20 off onJAEC membership (excluding JA Voice & JA Job Board).

As you may also have observed, both the sites JA Voice and JA Job Board, have been defaced 3 times in the last 2 weeks. The reason? The Demo sites running on the same server allows superadmin login access to back-end, which allows to edit layout files (CSS & Templates) in back-end. Therefore, hacker can edit those php files and insert injection code. This made both the sites quite prone to hacking attempts. That's what has been happening for the past 2 weeks.
