Yes, it is that time again. I love WordPress to death. Yet sometimes I find it a bit silly. There must be a solution to this gripe at the very least because somehow, Facebook and many other huge sites solved it.
The Way to Fix It
Actually, the way to fix it already is out there. The front-page example of Minify compressing WordPress assets! WordPress already has the wp_enqueue_script function which will include a script tag to a specific url in the head. A function similar to this could do the minifying.
The Grim Reality
So that’s about it for now. I hope that the WordPress developers address this in the next version, 2.9.
