Our company's site is painfully slow. Using google developers page speed insights, our site was getting a score of 51/100 with suggestions to enable compression, minify js/css, as well as to eliminate render blocking js.
I searched and installed the W3 Super Cache plugin which increased the score to 84/100, which was a nice improvement but then crashed the site. So I'm back to trying other plugins, but am seeing very little improvements.
I did edit my .htaccess file to include, " AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/xml text/css" which improved my score to 65/100.
I've also added these other plugins, " WP-HTML-Compression, & Quick Cache" which seemed to have no affect on score. I've also tried "Dependency Minification" plugin, but it has a conflict with my "tab slider", and "gravity forms placeholder" plugins.
What do you guys use that is effective and stable?
