As part of our commitment to the continual development of WP-Optimize, we are pleased to inform you of our new feature: Lazy Load.
WP-Optimize is WordPress’ most popular optimisation plugin with over 700,000 existing users. WP-Optimize automatically cleans up and optimises your WordPress database.
It’s a simple, highly effective tool that removes all kinds of old revisions, spam and trash with just a couple of clicks.
What is Lazy Loading?
The two most important factors that slow down sites are HTTP requests and page weight. The more requests your browser sends to the server, the slower the website is.
How does it work?
Lazy loading is the technique of only loading parts of a web-page when it is visible to the user.
The parts, usually images or videos, are replaced by placeholder elements until they are needed. This gives the advantage of the page loading much faster, which can be an effective tool for speeding up your WordPress website. Rather than waiting for everything on the page to load, the user can start viewing visible content quickly.
What are the benefits?
Case studies have shown how slow page loading speeds can have negative effects on conversions, SEO and other success based factors.
If you need to disable lazy loading for certain images, videos or iframes just add ‘no-lazy’ class to the specific HTML element.
