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.

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.

WP-Optimize confirms it is developing a leading image compression feature

Smush is a handy and simple to use tool that uses the latest and best-in-class lossy compression techniques to quickly and easily optimise, compress and resize any or all the images on your website.

GDPR compliance with UpdraftPlus: encrypting the databases in your WordPress backups if they contain user data

GDPR is an important new data regulation coming into force soon across the whole of the EU. We’re working on fully complying ourselves with our own customer data, and have launched a Data and Privacy Centre here: https://updraftplus.com/data-protection-and-privacy-centre/.  This should be fully complete within the next few days.
As part of the law, many customers are asking if our software helps them be compliant.  We’ve put out details on what information we collect here.

One thing you need to ensure is that your backups of your customer’s private data are protected. To help with this, UpdraftPlus Premium can encrypt the data in your backups. It has an industry-standard AES encryptor keeps all of the sensitive WordPress installation data (e.g. passwords, lists of users, secret keys, etc.) stored in your database completely secure.

New Command-Line Feature for WP-Optimize

We’ve added WP-CLI support to the Premium version of our WP-Optimize Premium plugin.

WP-CLI is the command-line interface for WordPress that allows you to do all kinds of things, such as updating plugins and configuring multisite installs, without using a web browser.

Including it in WP-Optimize Premium means that you will now be able to run optimization commands directly on command-line. During this operation, WP-Oprtimize will perform in exactly the same way, but it will produce a detailed output on screen to show you what’s happening.

This feature is mainly for the experienced user, but it’s easy enough for anyone to set up and run. Here’s how it works:

  1. Before running an optimization, you will need to gather a list of optimizations available to you on command-line. To do this, you will need to run the following:

wp optimize optimizations

This will bring out the list of optimizations, as below:

optimizetables Optimise database tables
revisions Clean all post revisions
trash Clean all trashed posts
spam Remove spam and binned comments
unapproved Remove unapproved comments
attachments Remove orphaned attachments
transient Remove expired transient options
pingbacks Remove pingbacks
trackbacks Remove trackbacks
postmeta Clean post meta data
commentmeta Clean comment meta data
orphandata Clean orphaned relationship data
  1. When you have chosen your optimizations, you can then run them on the command-line (the example below uses the orphandata optimization):

 

wp optimize do-optimization --optimization-id=orphandata

 

  1. Once complete, the output will show something like this:

Success: 0 orphaned meta data deleted across 14 sites

You can also run multiple optimizations on command-line by placing a comma after each optimization (the example below uses both orphandata and revisions optimization);

Success: 0 orphaned meta data deleted across 14 sites

Success: 0 post revisions deleted across 14 sites

All Commands start with wp optimize and these are the full options available:

version To return the current WP-Optimize version.
optimization
Displays a full list of commands (as see up above) to optimize
do-optimization --optimization-id=
Running the selected optimization
--path=
Add this just after wp to specify the wordpress install e.g. wp –path=/var/www/html/work/multisite optimize do-optimization –optimization-id=orphandata
