AO extra feature-complete, testers needed

I just committed what I consider the last feature to be added to AO Extra; the optimization of Google Fonts, with the choice between:

  • “remove”
  • “aggregate and link”, where the Google Font CSS might still render-blocking but there will be no “flash of unstyled fonts”)
  • “aggregate and load asynchronous with webfont.js” will not be render-blocking, but might lead to that dreaded “flash of unstyled fonts”

Next step before merging AO Extra with Autoptimize to become AO 2.3; testing. And that’s where I need your help;

  1. Download the AO Extra zip-file from Github
  2. go to Plugins -> Add New -> Upload Plugin
  3. Click “browse” and select the zip-file you downloaded in (1)
  4. Click “Install now”
  5. Click “Activate”
  6. Go to Settings -> Autoptimize -> Extra
  7. Test
  8. Give generic feedback below or file bugs in the projects Github Issues

If all goes well Autoptimize 2.3 could be release before we have to wave 2017 goodbye :-)

      preconnect does 3 things; dns-lookup, connection setup and (if applicable) SSL/TLS negotiation. so you dns-prefetch is in there :)
