Plugin Information

More than 9 out of 10 users are using a browser that is able to display webp images. Yet, on most websites, they are served jpeg images, which are typically double the size of webp images for a given quality. What a waste of bandwidth! This plugin was created to help remedy that situation. With little effort, WordPress admins can have their site serving autogenerated webp images to browsers that supports it, while still serving jpeg and png files to browsers that does not support webp.

My website image are stored in specific plugin’s upload folder. I selected ‘all content’ in settings. Plugin shows, that more then 5000 images was converted. But I still see only jpg and png images on my website. Useless plugin!

I tried each and every step for hours until I installed Converter for Media – Convert WebP and AVIF & Optimize Images | Ease image optimization. With a few simple clicks WebP images are served.

Amazing Plugin - Old School

By xolite on July 11, 2022

Always a pleasant surprise to come across a very well written plugin that out performs what it suggests and without all the nag/links/upgrade/GoToPro. Nice and simple interface, easy configuration and works perfectly. You will find one link "Buy The Developer A Coffee" and I certainly will, thank you. Miss these days and types of developers.

Game changer for Cloudflare free tier users

By masvil on July 8, 2022

It is a game changer for Cloudflare free tier users. Thanks to "CDN friendly" + Replace image URLs you can serve WebPs. Also the "on demand" concept is great! Hat off dev, donation well deserved.
