1.7.8 Perfmatters WordPress Plugin
We developed the Perfmatters plugin with the goal of simplification. We use all of these optimizations on our own site and are happy to provide you with an easy way to have them now too. No messy code or your functions.php file. Performance optimizations shouldn’t be complicated, so everything can be enabled/disabled with a single click.
The main way this plugin helps speed up your site is by disabling scripts that may not be used on your site. For example, by default, emojis are loaded on every page of your site. If you don’t use them, this is just slowing it down. By disabling it, the script no longer loads, so it reduces your overall number of HTTP requests and page size.
Another useful feature is our database optimization. Over time, things like revisions, auto-drafts, spam comments and transients start filling up your database and before you know it, it’s affecting your site’s performance. With Perfmatters, you can easily clean up all of this stuff and even set limits to prevent it from happening again. This ensures a fast and agile database.
Quick switching options
Many of Perfmatter’s options can be applied by simply toggling them. Here’s a quick look at a few of the options we recommend using.
Disable emojis, embeds, dashicons.
Disable unnecessary scripts and assets that you may not use on your site, such as emojis, embeds, dashicons, etc.
Remove query strings
