Overview

Speedster by Fooman

• Combines multiple Javascript and CSS files into a single Javascript file and single CSS file, to enable faster page load times
• Reduces the total size of files to be loaded as well as the number of HTTP requests, for empty and primed caches
• Fully automated once installed, with automatic versioning when Javascript/CSS files are updated
• Compresses files without requiring gzip support on your server
• Creates far future expire headers for the combined Javascript and CSS files
• Multi store capable
• Uses the Minify library by Steve Clay (released under a BSD license)

Fooman Speedster is now controlled by an advanced self testing framework. You can only enable Speedster once the configuration has been set up correctly and all self tests run successfully.

Note that the self test does not include testing for existing Javascript errors on your site - it's still important to do this separately before installing Fooman Speedster (see below for details).

Important - Before you Install Fooman Speedster

Please ensure you read and understand all installation and troubleshooting instructions
Ask your Magento developer to install the extension if you don't understand something in the instructions. If you do not follow all steps in the installation and troubleshooting instructions, the installation of Fooman Speedster could fail and generate errors on your site.

Always install Fooman Speedster first on your test site, before installing it on your live site
If any errors occur, it is far preferable to complete our troubleshooting instructions on your test site so your live site will remain unaffected.

Always test for existing Javascript errors on your site before installing Fooman Speedster
Fooman Speedster relies on all Javascript on your store being completely error free. If your store contains existing Javascript errors, these will be magnified when installing Speedster and could cause issues with your store's frontend. The Speedster self test does not include testing for existing Javascript errors on your site. It is important to do this separately before installing Fooman Speedster (you can test with http://jslint.com). If there any existing Javascript errors are identified on your site, ensure these are completely fixed before installing Fooman Speedster.

Ensure your site meets all system requirements (see below)

We provide Fooman Speedster as a free extension to the Magento community. Please be fair to us and do not post negative reviews for errors which can be avoided by following the installation and troubleshooting instructions (these are comprehensive and cover 95% of all issues reported to us since 2008). Unfortunately the majority of recent negative reviews that have been published via Magento Connect describe errors where either system requirements were not met, or instructions were not followed correctly. Please take care to follow all instructions correctly, and if you believe you have found a genuine error, contact us to report it in the first instance rather than leaving a negative review via Magento Connect. Thank you.

We wish you a successful installation and hope that you are impressed by the results Fooman Speedster can deliver on your store.

System Requirements - Is Fooman Speedster right for my Store?

System Requirements
Fooman Speedster works out of the box using an Apache platform run on Linux. In addition:
• Mod_rewrite (a standard Apache module installed by default on most Linux servers) must be enabled
• .htaccess must be supported
• CSS images must be available under the same domain as the store

Note: Several developers have also successfully installed Fooman Speedster on different platforms by adapting the installation process. For further reading see the ISAPI2 and Nginx threads.

Risk of Javascript Errors
Fooman Speedster has been tested with the default Magento themes and successfully installed on tens of thousands of Magento stores since 2008. However, there is always a risk that minifying and combining Javascript files can produce Javascript errors. We do not recommend using Fooman Speedster without thorough testing on a test site if:
• Your store already contains minified files
• Significant Javascript customisation work has been done on your store and the added non-default Javascript files do not follow best practice Javascript (you can test with http://jslint.com/)
• Your store uses Jquery (or has extensions installed which use Jquery) - although a workaround is provided in the instructions, almost 100% of reported errors are from stores which also use Jquery

Speedster Advanced
Fooman Speedster Advanced uses an advanced caching strategy which combines, compresses and caches JS and CSS files. Click here to see if this extension is right for your store.

Feel free to report any suspected bugs with the extension, however please note that we are unable to provide individual support or troubleshooting advice via our support email address - see our general FAQ for more details.

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by FOOMAN

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 186 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Stopped working after upgrade It was working fine when we were on Mengto CE v1.4.0. We upgraded to Magento CE v1.8.0. It stopped working. Some of my frontend lacked css and backend lacked js which kept it frozen. I was not able to navigate. Just able to log-in to the admin and thats it. For which, I commented the adminhtml block rewrite in config.xml. It was posted as a solution in one of the reviews here. I verifed all file-folder permissions and after running self-test, its obviously failing as it is not able to rewrite block. But it is not getting enabled. It would be a great help if you provide some solution to this. March 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works as advertised Works just fine! My site speed increased by 10%!!! February 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of my go to speed up extensions Great extension with amazing support for a free extension. If you follow the provided docs, this works perfectly every time. I think this is also the best documentend free extension out there. If you're having trouble installing it, make sure to read all the documentation. I've had inaccesible backends too, but I always found that I just didn't read the documentation well enough and hadd missed some little things like file permissions. February 7, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by MY backend was gone After i installed the extension, my back-end was all gone. All left was links showing where to go so i found the system>magento connect and uninstalled it. Thanks god that i did not need to restore. The backend was like before after uninstall. I dont know how to make it work or it just does not work with latest version of magento. January 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly recommended extension Our current CE 1.8.1 installation runs with a highly detailed theme. The home page (uncached) tooks whopping 12 seconds to load! The load time decreases dramatically to 2.3 seconds with this extension. Pls. make sure to follow the detailed instructions! December 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It works! 70% improvement!! I used FTP to install, since many users say it doesn't work with Magento Connect. By reading the comments I was not sure this was going to work. But if you follow the instructions at http://cdn.fooman.co.nz/media/custom/upload/TheUltimateGuidetoInstallingMagentoExtensions.pdf it works perfectly. It reduced by 70% the loading times for my store. Right on! Thanks! I really wonder whether everyone followed the instructions... December 6, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by This function is ready in core magento I see this functionality is supported ready in core of magento in System => configuration => Advance => Developer I think the core function should be better November 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big difference developing a shop on a cheap server using Magento version 1.7.0.2 After installing. Average load time dropped from 3,6 seconds to 1,5 seconds. November 18, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unable to get this working Have tried to add this onto our magento store to improve performance, sadly all it did was cause issues with the site. It looks as though it may be causing problems with the css as the site is rendering without any formatting. Had to remove again, therefore of no use. Your mileage may vary, but keep you magento connect backend open to reverse the install in case ot doesnt work for you November 7, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Avoid this module This module gives you headaches instead of small js and css files. Files that cannot be read, includes that won't work. You'd be better off merging the files yourself. November 5, 2013

Hey there,

I tried installing the Extension via FTP by uploading the unzipped folder (fooman_speedster-3.0.0) to magento root directory, but nothing happens. Do I have to switch Speedster on or do anything?

Hi,

After installing the extension via FTP, all my other menus in the admin page becomes unclickable--there is no response when I click the menus. However after disabling the extension via editing the xml file and manually cleared the cache, everything is back to normal.

Any help would be appreciated

Cheers
Alex
