I wrote this script in 2015, five years ago, so I would expect for it to cause some plugins to function incorrectly. To my surprise it's still useful in several use cases after 5 years of WordPress updates. Thanks for the comments everyone!

For those who have a problem with the display of Revolution Slider.

You can solve the problem by adding your 2 'setREVStartSize' scripts that you can find in the header and the body of your page source script,
in a new js file created .

(Take care to remove the <script> </script> tags of your JS script)

Add your files in the FTP directory like this :

wp-content / plugins / revslider / public / assets / js / File1.js

&

wp-content / plugins / revslider / public / assets / js / File2.js

Then you can use the plugin name : Insert Headers and Footers

And Finally insert your scripts like this:

<script type = 'text / javascript' src = 'https: //www.site.com/wp-content/plugins/revslider/public/assets/js/file1.js'> & <script type = 'text / javascript' src = 'https: //www.site.com/wp-content/plugins/revslider/public/assets/js/file2.js'> Taking care to respect the location of the tags that were either in the header or in the body. And now everything is working. Sorry for my faults, English level in France is very poor :)

//This is how Autoptimize plugin fix the Revslider issue.
if ( class_exists( 'RevSlider' ) ) {
$this->content = preg_replace( '#\n(data-.$)\n#Um', ' $1 ', $this->content );
$this->content = preg_replace( '#<[^>]
(="[^"\'<>\s]*")(\w)#', '$1 $2', $this->content );
}

@wolkanca good small code, I would just add to your code before return:
...
$str = preg_replace("/>\s+</m", "><", $str);
...
return $str;
