Although I very much doubt this will ever be able to put a major dent in Facebook’s quasi-monopoly, I cannot but be supportive of Jimmy Wales/ Wikimedia’s new social network. If you want to join and appear in my friends-list there go to https://wt.social/u/frank-goossens.
Fun fact; As per wordpress.org “popular plugins” ranking , Autoptimize is slowly but surely closing in on what used to be the go-to solution for Web Performance Optimization W3 Total Cache based on the “active installs” metric. Who would have thought? What a crazy ride …
Zwijg me (niet) van de laatste kutgroep uit Engelang! Crazy Squids feeding off houseplants (and cowbell);
Update 2021: no need for below “hack” anymore; you can configure Autoptimize on a per-page basis on the post/ page edit screen! See this blogpost on the metabox settings for some more info.
So suppose you have one page/ post which for whatever reason you don’t want Autoptimize to act on? Simply add this in the post content and AO will bail out;
Some extra info:
- Make sure to use the “text”-editor, not the “visual” one as I did here to make sure the ode is escaped and thus visible
- This bailing out was added 5 years ago to stop the PHP-generated xsl:stylesheet from Yoast SEO from being autoptmized, if I’m not mistaking Yoast generates the stylesheet differently now.
- The xsl-tag is enclosed in a HTML comment wrapper to ensure it is not visible (except here, on purpose to escape the HTML tags so they are visible for you to see).
So I love Firefox’ quantum leap, huge improvement, but the way they’re plugging Pocket was bugging me. I ended up diving under the hood (as in about:config) and setting extensions.pocket.enabled to “false” seems to hide Pocket nicely. Now back to work!
