About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by GossamerThreads

GTspeed 3 5 78 78
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
Harika bir eklenti mükemmel site performans testini F den C ye çevirdi.. August 17, 2014
Great Plugin Hello all , I used this plugin in my store , and it is working perfectly And Really Thank you to this guys . If you face a issues like this : jpegoptim is not executable Then use below command to optimize images easily in System-> Configurations . Find GTspeed in left coloumn and click on that .....and use below command . {{base_dir}}/lib/gtspeed/<OS>elf32<OS> It increase 25% speed of my site . Thanks again to this guys and Happy coding . Thank you so much . June 16, 2014
Great on Magento 1.7 but not on the newest releases I tested this extension on different shops and it used to work like a charm - strangely it had better results on shared hosting than on vps. Beside the bug conveniently fixed by pgulikers a few reviews down here, on Magento 1.9 it messes up even with the basic template so the css and js unification does not work. It's a pity this extension is not supported anymore. June 13, 2014
Works as described I just installed and there was no problem. Thank you May 20, 2014
not recommended I installed this updated, but google didn't give me even a point more in speedtest. Also, althouh there are known bugs, no one fixes it and it crashes layout. March 18, 2014
The best optimization extension every things like if your configuration is correct March 3, 2014
CSS files not found There seems to be a bug in version 1.1.3 in regard to loading CSS-files. Simple fix: at line 121 of app/code/community/GT/Speed/Block/Page/Html/Head.php replace: : Mage::getBaseDir() .$designPackage->getSkinUrl( $name, array( ) ); with: : $designPackage->getSkinUrl( $name, array( ) ); February 19, 2014
NO USE AT ALL No use at all...website disfigures after installing this plugin....wastage of time January 29, 2014
Useless Glad I had a backup made and the best it's option is UNISTALL. Sorry. January 12, 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,
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.

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
