About that new autoptimize_filter_imgopt_lazyload_from_nth filter

Some people asked for documentation/ information on that new autoptimize_filter_imgopt_lazyload_from_nth filter which allows one to tell AO not to optimize the first X images found in the HTML, so here is an example code snippet that sees AO not lazyload the first 5 images:

add_filter( 'autoptimize_filter_imgopt_lazyload_from_nth', function(){ return 5; } );

Update: as from AO 2.8.2 this will also be an option on the settings page, see screenshot :)

 

How to LYTE-n up your WooCommerce video’s

So you have a WooCommerce shop which uses YouTube video’s to showcase your products but those same video’s are slowing your site down as YouTube embeds typically do? WP YouTube Lyte can go a long way to fix that issue, replacing the “fat embedded YouTube player” with a LYTE alternative.

LYTE will automatically detect and replace YouTube links (oEmbeds) and iFrames in your content (blogposts, pages, product descriptions) but is not active on content that does not hook into WordPress’ the_content filter (e.g. category descriptions or short product descriptions). To have LYTE active on those as well, just hook the respective filters up with the lyte_parse-function and you’re good to go;

if (function_exists('lyte_parse')) {
add_filter('woocommerce_short_description','lyte_parse');
add_filter('category_description','lyte_parse');
}

And a LYTE video, in case you’re wondering, looks like this (in this case beautiful harmonies by David Crosby & Venice, filmed way back in 1999 on Dutch TV);

I see you baby, purging that spam!

all we are saying, is give ham a chance!While Akismet does a good job at flagging comments as spam, it by default only purges spam (from the comments and comments_meta tables) after 15 days.

So it’s a good thing Akismet now has a filter to change the amount of days after which spam is removed. Below code (in a small plugin or in a child theme’s functions.php) should do the trick.

/** tell akismet to purge spam sooner */
add_filter('akismet_delete_commentmeta_interval','change_akismet_interval');
add_filter('akismet_delete_comment_interval','change_akismet_interval');

function change_akismet_interval($in) {
     return 5;
}

Happy purging!
