Autoptimize 2.6: testers for multisite wanted

Over the last couple of months Juanfran Granados from Mirai, an hotelier agency that used WordPress extensively, worked hard to add multisite administration capabilities to Autoptimize:

  • If AO has been network-activated, there will be an entry-point in the network settings screens where one can configure Autoptimize for the entire network.
  • On the subsites the AO settings screen will show a message that settings are done at a network level
  • On the network-AO-settings there is an option to allow AO to be configured per site
  • if AO has not been network-activated, things work as they do now; all settings are done on a per-site level

I have just merged his code into separate branch on Github and given that significant changes that went into this (almost all files changed), I need you and you and you and … to download and test that multisite-test branch before I merge the changes into the beta branch. Looking forward to your feedback!

(even) more privacy with Firefox Containers

Being wary of all things tracking by Google & Facebook, both of who’s products I love but data capturing practices I hate, for the last 4 years or so I always logged in into these in “Private browsing” sessions in Firefox (because why trust the worlds biggest advertising platform with your privacy, right?)

Now I just “discovered” that the Mozilla team have rendered that somewhat clumsy procedure -which required me to log in each time I restarted my computer or browser- redundant with their “Firefox Multi-Account Containers” add-on, allowing you to contain entire sessions to one (or more) tabs;

So now I have one browser window with a couple of tabs in the Google container, one tab in a Facebook container and all others in the “default” container where Google & Facebook can’t track me (fingerprinting aside, but there’s an option for that).

Autoptimize featured on The CommonSenSEO Show

I had a nice chat on The CommonSenSEO Show, if you want to hear me ramble you can do so in this video;

We just joined the club!

Autoptimize just joined the “1+ million active installs”-club. Crazy!

I’m very happy, thanks everyone for using, thanks for the support-questions & all the great feedback therein and especially thanks to the people who actively contributed and especially-especially to Emilio López (Turl) for creating Autoptimize and handing it over to me back in 2013 and to Tomaš Trkulja who cleaned up al lot of the messy code I added to it and introducing me to PHP codesniffer & Travis CI tests.
