Control the loading of JS and CSS files globally and specifically in Joomla!

Plugin: JCC - JS CSS Control
Function: With this plugin the loading of JavaScript and CSS files can be easily prevented in Joomla!
Languages: German and English

With this plugin the loading of JS and CSS files can be easily controlled. You may suppress loading those files on pages where they are not needed. This might be important for example at the frontpage for optimizing loading times. The plugin is able to exclude those files globally or just on selected pages.

For global exclusion you have to enter the concerned file (with suffix) in a field. For selective exclusion on specified pages you have to enter additionally to the file name, parameters of the specified page, separated with a pipe symbol (|). You may generate an output of required parameters using the debug mode at the frontend. See tab "Installation" for more details.


  • Exclude JavaScript (.js) files
  • Exclude CSS (.css) files
  • Global and specific deactivation of the files
  • Debug Mode (for determining of the required parameters) with detailed information
  • Language: German and English


Install the plugin by accessing the administration menu of the back-end under Extensions. Then access Extensions – Plugins – System - JS CSS Control and customize it to your needs. Don't forget to activate it!


There are two text areas available. The first one is for the exclusion of JavaScript files, the second for the CSS files.

Enter only one file name each line. If you want to disable the file globally on all sides, then it is sufficient to enter the name of the file with the .js / .css extension. If you want to exclude specific files on a particular page, then you must also specify the parameters of the page. The parameters can be determined using the option "Debug Mode".

Procedure: Enable debug mode, load the desired page in the frontend, copy and paste the displayed parameters in the plugin settings, disable debug mode.

The parameters have to be separated by a pipe symbol (|) from the file name.

Debug Mode:

The debug mode shows the parameters with which the files can be excluded on certain pages. In addition, further information such as the number and sizes of files are displayed.
