With RankMath active WP-Rocket doesn't minify and optimise

  • Hi there,

    I need help with this issue. I observed that wp-rocket doesn’t minify anything so I start to investigate. After hours of trying anything I decided to deactivate all the plugins to find out if wp-rocket work. If it was only him activated, hi minifies! So I activate plugins one by one, clear cache, to see if everything it is ok and there was… RankMath.

    I cant figure out why or what makes RankMath to stop WP-Rocket to work. I need both of them. I test only with them two activated and the issue was there.

    Can you help me to debug this issue? It is only at my side or it is an incompatibility?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the response.

    I have tested your site’s page performance with Rank Math activated and deactivated and it gives the same score for minified CSS & JS on GTMetrix.
    Would you mind letting me know how you are reproducing this behavior so that I can test this further?

    I am looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    I don’t care about GTMetrix. Please watch the source code of any frontpage of my site, with both modules activated, and you can see, no css or js is minified. Deactivate RankMath and see the magic that WP Rocket do.

    How to say, I will switch back on Yoast if this issue will be a part o our collaboration. It is not ok to say that there are no changes in the GTMetrix score! Do you know what I prepare to do with my website forward on? I prepare mod_pagespeed on my server side, but I need first wp-rocket to optimize the page, and then I will put mod_pagespeed to do his magic of converting media in webp for example!

    Just find what make RankMath to WP-Rocket do not optimize css, js and html code!

    You are totally unprofessional. You deactivated RankMath and went home from the office because your job day was done? How can you take a decision like that to let my website two days without a seo plugin, until you come back at the office on monday? You m.f. made me very angry.

    If this issue it is not important for you, listen here, for me it is! Compatibility between seo module and wp rocket it is absolutely necessary! If RankMath does not fit, I wanna hear this from your boss.

    Hi Bogdan,

    Thanks for the follow up and apologies for any inconvenience I might have caused from the delay.

    I was in the process of setting up a local test install to continue my investigation and hence the delay but unfortunately I cannot replicate this. I am going to pass this on to a team member so that we can test this further and get back to you.

    We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter. Thank you.

    The problem was resolved!
    The issue was created by the theme Yosemite (Version: 1.2.4) along with the requirement that the option from RankMath, force rewrite title for the front page, to be On.
    After next theme update (Version: 1.2.5) you fix the issue and now the minimization process of WP Rocket it works normally.

    Thanks to Bhanu for his help!
