About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by GTnet

GTspeed 2.9 5 87 87
To Old All used Image Compressing Libraries are 32 Bit Executables and will not work on 64 Bit Linux. But who runs a 32 Bit Linux-Server to host Magento? February 20, 2015
Broke the site Using 1.9 version as soon as i install it crash my whole admin panel not just the site. Do not install it if you use the same version. February 4, 2015
Doesn't work with 1.9.0.1 Useless, did not work cause doesnt work on magento 1.9 November 20, 2014
Usage of GT Speed I tried to use it to optimise my website but it broke the whole layout. My Magento version is 1.8. I do not recommend the usage of it. November 18, 2014
Does not work Don't use if running 1.8 or CloudFlare. Completely broke the layout of the site. The advanced image link also returned a 404 error. This was with all options disabled. I only required the image optimisation tools so had not enabled any of the JS/CSS optimisations. Site returned to normal on unistallation. November 13, 2014
Amazing Extension There is no word I can describe how happy I'm when I found this awesome extension. Works perfect and speed up my website 40 percent. November 12, 2014
Nice. Worked for me smoothly. Just in case make backup before installing. I had some troubles with image compression, but after reading q&a solved everything. October 21, 2014
Not Good Messing all Layout don't try on live website not satisfied October 15, 2014
Simply amazing It works as described I tried with another extensions like Fooman, and just this one works perfectly, very recommended, just back up your magento site before test it if you are not sure, then when you use you will love it!. October 14, 2014
Simple yet powerful extension to speed up your store instantly ! I strongly recommend this extension if you want to reduce your page loading speed and improve your site performance. After minifying and combining the css and js, it reduces 3-4 seconds in our total page loading time. Considering the image optimization, the image compression Linux library packages (jpegoptim, gifsicle, optipng) are incompatible with the Linux version we use Linux version 2.6.32-279.el6.x86_64 (Red Hat 4.4.6-4). So make sure to update these libraries based on your Linux Version. (It seems these libraries bundled with this extension support only 32 bit). This is the same with Windows it seems. If you experience "gifsicle is not executable" make sure to check your folder and file permissions for the path (lib/gtspeed/elf32) as well as check the compatability of these image packages based on your linux version. Regarding the awful (hateful) reviews by some of the people who tried this extension below, make sure your JS and CSS follows the proper standards, if not when minifed and combined, it will break most likely. BTW kindly have some courtesy before you blame someone who provide something free and opensource and you should have a basic sense to try this (or any) 3rd party free (or paid extension) directly into your production environment. Thank you very much Gossamer for this simple and spot on extension ! September 18, 2014

Hi

Just want to say your plugin is amazing!!

The only one issue I can see is that when the Combine JavaScript Files is enabled, the java scripts dont work on the catalog page. This is strange as it works everywhere else.

Tried to ask web developers and they all tell me to ask yourselves as they find this strange too.

Your help would really be appreciated.

Hi Gossamer

I have used Gtspeed for my magento store and css/js minification works fine but css/js combining gives Network Error- 400 Bad request. I have set proper permission to files(644) and folders(755). What will be the solution for it ?

Please help.

Hi,
I tried installing GTspeed on my Magento 1.6.2, and it shows great result on my top domain. But not on the other three shops in my Magento.

All the 4 stores use the same htaccess file, but also the header expire code is working just for one store.

Can I get GTspeed to work for multi store, and all shops, and if so how?

Many thanks,
Mats

Hi there,

I get this error (General error: 2006 MySQL server has gone away) when I try to optimise my images.
I have set the correct permissions on the optimisation programs and can run them myself from SSH.

Thanks!

Hi there,

After installing this extension, I get these strange two characters at the top of every page:

]>

I believe they're coming from the following statement:

LINE 34: <!--[if <!--[if (gte IE 9) | (IEMobile)]><!-->]>

Could you please help?

Thank you

I have GT Speed working correctly with no errors. Here is the readout for the optimisation area:

Image Summary

Total Images: 4870

Not Optimized: 0

Space Savings: 744kb

So you can see it is working. Sadly on Page Speed it is reading that we could be saving significantly more space:

Optimizing the following images could reduce their size by 307.8KiB (46% reduction).

Thanks in advance.
