    Thank you for all your help so far. I love this theme and am excited to create my best work yet because of all of you.

    I need help with W3 Total Cache. I’ve set it up with minimal settings. I would love to do whatever it is you did to the demo site. When I load my site, in Pingdom Tools all my css files are being loaded separately. If I auto minify all of the css is lost. How would I go about combining all the css. Also, I am using a child theme.

    When I go with the minimal settings for the minify and just have the js on, I loose some functionality. Right now I notice that my blog preview buttons no longer show the next thumbnail. I love this feature and would like to keep it. I think I am having trouble because of how the theme is set up for every possibility but I could also be missing something.

    The browser is also searching for an empty/non-exsistent style.css.

    Here are links to my 3 altered settings on W3 Total Cache and website performance:





    Thank you for your time and knowledge.



    Hey! I have never used w3 total cache so I cant really help a lot here.

    The live server uses a combination of wp supercache and better-wp-minify:

    Those 2 in combination should work without problems, maybe you might like to test them instead of w3 total cache :)


    Thank you Kriesi. These are a great solution. I am having trouble getting better minify to put css in the header.

    I’ve put the following handles in the minify script options for placement in the header:








    I’ve check the database and all the handles are loading into the table correctly.

    I am wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that I am using a child theme. Have you ever ran into this problem?

    Side note:

    I added the main css files to my child folder and called them in the theme function.

    Thank you for your help!



    Hi Bethany,

    I’ve not used the minify plugin mentioned but you would need to look through the documentation for the plugin if something isn’t working correctly.
