WordPress Plugins

When adding or removing a plugin always check performance effects:


3 Nov 2016 CM is 79 on desktop and 92 on desktop.

Not used but were installed into wordpress and had conflictions:

  • Jetpack by wordpress.com (version 4.3.2) and was removed as degraded page speed
  • W3 Total Cache (version and was removed as did not function with scroll triggered box but is used by many large organisations (quite costly when a free pluggin can offer better results).
  • WP minify
  • WhatsApp Share Button (Version 1.0.1 | By Alex Moss ) was removed as reduced speed test due to refferal to outside sources for functioning.
  • WooDojo by woo themes (don’t actually know why I added it to the site)
