If you are using WP Rocket for the first time then just follow the settings which I recommend. so let’s start configuring WP Rocker step by step.
Lazy load is the feature that WP Rocket provides. You do not need to use another plugin to take advantage of the lazy load. Lazy load is a feature that does not load your images or videos in your post until your visitors scroll down the page.
If your website visitors start scrolling down the images and videos will start loading. If they do not scroll down all images and videos will not load. Which is good for page speed.
After enabling lazy load save settings and visit your website. Sometimes it changes your homepage settings. Do this process while you are login to WP account and also while you are log out from your WP account.
We need to enable mobile caching which make our website so friendly for the mobile user. And also not to forget to enable separate cache files for mobile users.
User Cache: we do not need to enable caching for WordPress login in users.
Only enable SLL cache if you have got SSL certificate from your hosting company. If you do not have SLL then keep it unchecked. I do not use SLL the date of posting this article. I may enable SSL for future so I will keep it Uncheck for onlineliken.com.
And also enable EMOJI Cache, this will reduce the number of requests and will improve the load time of your website.
Other embeds, for example, Vimeo and YouTube will work fine.
We have seen Basic tab settings now let’s move to the Static files tab. before moving to Static files tab clicks on save settings.
Under Minify files check all three options.this will remove all unnecessary spaces from all files. and also under combine files check all three available options GOOGLE Font, CSS, and JS.
Also, keep check Remove query strings from static resources.
Now let’s jump to Remove-blocking CSS/JS. check all options that are shown in the screenshot.
Now it’s time to visit your Website to check everything working fine.
If you are using sliders on your website, Or images and video are not loading. Then you need to uncheck all the options that we checked on Statics files tab one by one.
After unchecking all available options on Static files but still you are having some problem with your images or videos then the problem may be with your poor coded theme not with WP Rocket.
