If you’ve spent much time trying to speed up your website, you’ve probably come across the term “minify” — but you may not know what it means or how to do it. In this guide, we’ll show how to minify your code to help your site run faster and get better speed test results.
What does minifying mean?
How do you minify code in WordPress?
If you use WordPress, you haven’t written all the code for your site yourself. In fact, many WordPress users don’t know how to write code at all. So how can you minify code you haven’t written? Thankfully you can use a plugin to help. Many themes have minify tools built into them, so check first to see if your theme offers this ability and only use a plugin if it doesn’t.
