Asset CleanUp: Page Speed Booster

https://www.gabelivan.com/
https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-asset-clean-up/

Version:1.3.4.6
Requires:4.4 or higher
Compatible up to:5.2.4
Released:03 December 2015
Downloads:606858
Last Updated:19 October 2019

What they say:

  • Make your web pages load FASTER with Asset CleanUp: Page Speed Booster
  • Faster page load = Happier Visitors = More Conversions = More Revenue

There are often times when you are using a theme and a number of plugins which are enabled and run on the same page. However, you don’t need to use all of them and to improve the speed of your website and make the HTML source code cleaner (convenient for debugging purposes), it’s better to prevent those styles and scripts from loading.
For instance, you might use a plugin that generates contact forms and it loads its assets (.CSS and .JS files) in every page of your website instead of doing it only in the /contact page (if that’s the only place where you need it).
“Asset CleanUp” scans your page and detects all the assets that are loaded. All you have to do when editing a page/post is just to select the ones you DO NOT wish to load.
The plugin works best in combination with a cache plugin such as WP Rocket.

This plugin’s benefits include:

  • Decreases number of HTTP requests loaded (important for faster page load)
  • Reduces the HTML code of the actual page (that’s even better if GZIP compression is enabled)
  • Makes source code easier to scan in case you’re a developer and want to search for something
  • Remove possible conflicts between plugins/theme (e.g. 2 JavaScript files that are loading from different plugins and they interfere one with another)
  • Better performance score if you test your URL on websites such as GTmetrix, PageSpeed Insights, Pingdom Website Speed Test
  • Google will love your website more as it would be faster and fast page load is nowadays a factor in search ranking
  • Your server access log files (e.g the Apache ones) will be easier to scan and would take less space on your server

Plugin works with WordPress Multisite Network enabled!

Give Asset CleanUp a try! If you want to unlock more features, you can Upgrade to the Pro version.

The next plugin I have for you is:

Weather Atlas Widget

https://wordpress.org/plugins/weather-atlas/

Version:1.2.1
Requires:4.0 or higher
Compatible up to:5.3
Released:17 June 2017

(4.5 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
The Weather Atlas Widget is an excellent weather display widget which can be used in a side bar or displayed via short code. When I was in need of a clean god looking weather widget I needed something that not only displayed a single city but a page full of multiple cities.

This plugin does the trick providing both in a smooth setup. The display is clean and appealing. The background colour of the display varies in colour depending on the temperature from a cold blue to a hot red and lots of shades in between.

(4.8 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
I had been asked recently about an auto logout for inactivity for your users. This plugin helps insure that inactive windows are logged out to help an account from being compromised on shared computers. You can set a count down popup, or set a wake up message. You can redirect to a page or a popup. set timeout based on user roles. It also has tab support to prevent logouts when a user is in another tab.

ClassicPress Options

Adding a new segment just for Classic Press since the release of Gutenberg ClassicPress has garnered a lot of attention.
I will be released a short screen cast about the conversion of a site to ClassicPress, it can be found on our YouTube channel

This weeks ClassicPress plugin(s)

I will bring one or more plugins per week here as I can test them.

Note about last week's plugin, WordFence, it will show some false positives because of the file changes.

This week we have another one of my staple plugins.
