WP-Optimize announces Optimization Preview feature

WP-Optimize are pleased to inform you of yet another recently added new feature: Optimization Preview.

The Optimization Preview feature was created to give WP-Optimize Premium users the ability to preview, select and remove data and records available for optimization from the database. This preview process lets the user check the relevant data before running the optimization, which helps avoid mistakes such as removing potentially useful information.

To preview files available for optimization, WP-Optimize have added a link under the “Optimization” title. After clicking this link you will see the preview information (see arrow below) on what files are available to be optimized or deleted.

The Optimization Preview feature is available with WP-Optimize Premium and can be found here. Sign up and add it to your WordPress website today.

UpdraftClone – choose your clone region – multiple regions now available

UpdraftClone – choose your clone region – multiple regions now available

Not yet used UpdraftClone? It’s well worth taking a look; its ongoing growth in popularity means that we are able to keep progressing with many new exciting features on its roadmap.

We’re please to announce that in the next UpdraftPlus release, UpdraftClone will support multiple regions, and users will be able to choose the region to launch the clone in freely. This is useful for speed (having the clone as near to you as possible), and can be essential for regulatory compliance (not exporting data into another territory, particularly if you live in a region with strong data protection regulations).

As can be seen in the screenshot below, there are 8 available regions: London, New York, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Singapore, Frankfurt, Toronto and Bangalore.

UpdraftCentral plugin and theme management video

We are always adding new features to help you get the most out of our products and as UpdraftCentral is so popular with users, we have launched an accompanying video to better demonstrate the benefits of UpdraftCentral’s plugin and theme management options.

The video below takes you through lots of the different options available with UpdraftCentral Cloud Premium, including the ability to install themes to a site from your UpdraftCentral dashboard, individually or bulk check for the latest updates and even delete old themes that you are no long using.

The video also tells you how UpdraftCentral’s plugin management also lets you install and manage plugins on your sites, how you can install a new plugin and individually or bulk manage all of the plugins currently installed.

Watch the video below for more information on plugin and theme management.

Self-service licence resets

Up until now, officially, UpdraftPlus licences have been permanently assigned to the site that you activate them on. I say “officially”, because we recognise that sometimes people have very good reasons for only using a licence temporarily. Our support team have routinely reset licences upon request. But still… it’d be good to cut out the middle-man. So, we’re happy to announce that self-service licence resets are now available from your account page. An FAQ (more-or-less saying the same thing with slightly more detail and a screenshot) is available here.

WP-Optimize release new lazy load feature

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.
