FAB js conflict with W3 Total Cache


Hello I tested the plugin with W3tc disabled and it works fine.
But with W3tc enabled I noticed that tabbed content on a critical page on my site breaks.
I suspect that this relates to js. I’m not a js savvy guy but I noticed that ts-fab.min.js is called on page load.
After I excluded this file from w3tc minification the page looks fine.

Do you have any suggestions about how I can make it work without ts-fab.min.js exclusion?

Here is the page I’m talking about

Answered by Dragan Nikolic:

Hi I’ve checked our plugin, but there’s nothing that we can do on our end. I’ve searched for W3 Total Cache minify issues and I’ve seen a lot of people reporting them for various themes and plugins.

I suggest you follow this guide on how to configure minify manually.
