Package will brick site's Design and doesn't improve Page SpeedBrowser Info Environment
We are Concrete5 Developers ourselves and are using the CMS for ages. I found your package rather cool: It promises that it will improve Pagespeed just by activating the Package...
I tried it out on our own company pagehttp://simpit.ch/. It bricked the site's Design (Parallax-Areas were looking strange, Background was repeating etc.). I ran Google Pagespeed and there was no improvement of the page speed at all... Rather it was one or two points lower than before... What is more the Pagespeed on the Sub-Pages gave an error after enabling the Package.
This is a rather disappointing result to be honest...
Do you have any idea why it does not work on our page?

The documentation explains ways you can fix those.
As for the disappointing results in Google PageSpeed, I would have to have a look at your website and test it myself to be able to give an opinion.
What I can say is everybody else using this package is pretty happy with it. Some of the reviews tell of much-enhanced performance.
I use it on my own site kalmoya.com but the benefit is actually just a point or 2 there because it was already pretty optimized.
If you could enable the system and give me the website's address, I'd be happy to test it and let you know what I find.
You can find the original site on:http://simpit.ch (Instant Page Speed Magic deactivated).
I cloned the site to:http://test.simphosting.ch and activated Instant Page Speed Magic there... Only the non-warning functions are active but some areas of the page (parallax and footer) are still broken.
I'm curious what you'll find when testing.
Thanks and cheers,
When not using my plugin, the browser will usually fix those, usually in a good way.
But when using my plugin, the markup is parsed and some fixes happen in the background.
So for instance, when using my plugin, the wrapper around the parallax text with the class name parallax_wrapper is closed right before parallax_text_wrapper when it should wrap it. So my guess is that wrapper or another is missing something.
Could you check your markup?
The same goes for the footer where a wrapper is missing when using my plugin.
To be clear, my plugin does this only if the markup is malformed in the first place so you have to check that.
Let me know if that helps.
Thanks a lot for checking into it and possibly uncovering our markup issues.
Cheers and have a nice weekend,
