This includes the Media Library, your theme, and a handful of pre-configured folders (see Optimize Everything Else below). GRAND FlaGallery, NextCellent and NextGEN have their own Bulk Optimize pages.</p> <h4>Optimize Everything Else</h4> <p>Configure any folder within your WordPress install to be optimized. The Bulk Optimizer will compress theme images, BuddyPress avatars, BuddyPress Activity Plus images, Meta Slider slides, WP Symposium Pro avatars, GD bbPress attachments, Grand Media Galleries, and any user-specified folders. You can also use Scheduled optimization or run the optimizer from WP-CLI if that&#8217;s more your thing.</p> <h4>Plugin Compatibility</h4> <p>EWWW IO has been tested with hundreds (if not thousands) of <a href="https://docs.ewww.io/article/84-plugin-compatibility" rel="nofollow ugc">plugins and themes</a>, here are just a few of the most common ones: BuddyPress (Activity Plus add-on too), Cloudinary, Easy Watermark, FileBird, FooGallery, GD bbPress Attachments, GRAND FlAGallery, Gmedia Photo Gallery, MediaPress, Meta Slider, Microsoft Azure Storage, MyArcadePlugin, NextGEN Gallery, Regenerate Thumbnails, <a href="https://weglot.com/integrations/wordpress-translation-plugin/demo/" rel="nofollow ugc">Weglot</a>, WP Offload Media, <a href="https://wpml.org/plugin/ewww-image-optimizer/" rel="nofollow ugc">WPML</a>, WP Retina 2x, WP RSS Aggregator, WP Symposium. <a href="https://docs.ewww.io/article/84-plugin-compatibility" rel="nofollow ugc">Read more&#8230;</a></p> <h4>WebP Images</h4> <p>If you want simple, get automatic WebP conversion with Easy IO, and be done with it! Otherwise, you can generate WebP versions of your images with the Bulk Optimizer, and deliver them to supported browsers. Take your pick between Apache-style rewrite rules, JS WebP Rewriting, and WebP Rewriting. EWWW IO even works with the WebP option in the Cache Enabler plugin from KeyCDN.</p> <h4>WP-CLI</h4> <p>Allows you to run all Bulk Optimization processes from your command line, instead of the web interface. It is much faster, and allows you to do things like run it in &#8216;screen&#8217; or via regular cron (instead of wp-cron, which can be unpredictable on low-traffic sites). Install WP-CLI from wp-cli.org, and run &#8216;wp-cli.phar help ewwwio optimize&#8217; for more information or see the <a href="https://docs.ewww.io/article/25-optimizing-with-wp-cli" rel="nofollow ugc">Docs</a>.</p> <h4>CDN Support</h4> <p><a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/amazon-s3-and-cloudfront/" rel="ugc">WP Offload Media</a> is the officially supported (and recommended) plugin for uploads to Amazon S3, Digital Ocean Spaces, and Google Cloud Storage. <a href="https://docs.ewww.io/article/84-plugin-compatibility" rel="nofollow ugc">Check our compatibility list for details on other plugins</a>. All pull mode CDNs like Cloudflare, KeyCDN, MaxCDN, and Sucuri CloudProxy work automatically, but will require you to purge the cache after a bulk optimization.</p> <h4>Translations</h4> <p>Huge thanks to all our translators, <a href="https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins/ewww-image-optimizer/contributors" rel="nofollow ugc">see the full list</a>!</p> <p>If you would like to help translate this plugin, <a href="https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins/ewww-image-optimizer" rel="nofollow ugc">join the team</a>.<br /> <a href="https://ewww.io/register/" rel="nofollow ugc">Signup to receive updates when new strings are available for translation</a>.</p> <h3>Credits</h3> <p>Written by <a href="https://ewww.io" rel="nofollow ugc">Shane Bishop</a> with special thanks to my <a href="https://www.iamsecond.com/" rel="nofollow ugc">Lord and Savior</a>.
