I am trying to use wp-minify to minify my js/css on the fly. I can get the 'direct' css files to be minified, but I can't seem to get wp-minify to minify the 'linked' css files. My theme is a child theme off of twenty-ten, so my child theme's styles.css gets minified, but not twenty-ten's styles file.

@import prevents "parallel" downloads. I'd not suggest to use it in case you want to minify css files.


WP Minify is not updated for long time. Download WP Minify plugin and install using WordPress plugin installer.

After that go to minify page and download minify engine, unzip then copy 'min' folder to installed WP Minify's 'min' folder.

It has lot fixes and it takes care of @import files.
