Load plugin javascript files asynchronous – activating this option will set scripts to be loaded with the other page content at the same time without blocking load

This option will make your text content display first and after that to be loaded the other elements of the page – images, scripts and etc. This will prevent blocking load time while the user have to wait to see anything on the screen. It’s recommended for high loaded websites

Cache mode – choose one of the modes depending on your site’s load:

  • Cache button render and dynamic resources – recommended for high loaded sites. This option will cache the render of the buttons and will make the dynamic resources of the plugin to be treated as non-dynamic, which will make the buttons to be loaded faster
  • Cache only dynamic resources – recommended for medium loaded sites. This option will make only the dynamic resources of the plugin to be treated as non-dynamic, which will make the buttons to be loaded faster

Combine into single file all plugin static CSS files – combine all plugin’s CSS files and execute them with a single call to CSS
