You see, with the most of the WordPress plugins or even themes, most of the assets are loaded over the whole site, while usually you do not need those resources for certain pages. By unloading those files that aren’t necessary you are reducing the overall size of the page and at the same time decreasing the number of http requests. This results in a better performance for the pages and, even if other things are configured well, in a better SEO score for your site.
The most obvious using scenario would be when you have a contact form only on a Contact page. Another example is when you have an e-commerce plugin, e.g. Woocommerce, which loads its files over the whole site, while you may esencially need those files just on product pages. In both these cases, with Booster Sweeper you can stop these assets to appear on the pages that it’s not necessary to have them. Of course, you can imagine that you can do the same with other custom post types or plugins that are producing the same issue.
How Booster Sweeper can be beneficial
Booster Sweeper is simple to use
On each page or post of your WordPress site, from the sidebar settings, you’ll be able to notice a Booster Sweeper section. Here, our plugin is automatically detecting the assets that are loaded on the page. CSS and JS files are split in separate sections and when you select a file name, it will be prevented from loading on that page.
Premium Version of Booster Sweeper allows you to:
- Disable the Booster Sweeper’s meta box section per post and page, so everything is managed from the global settings (bypass confusion)
But that’s not all, Pro version gives you ability to control the appearance of the assets based on many conditions:
- Post types, e.g. Woocommerce’s products
- Archives, i.e. categories, tags or even custom post types specific archive
- Specific pages, like media files, search pages, 404
- By RegEx
To go further, with Booster Sweeper Pro, you can also:
- Manage the assets on the back-end side of the site. This may be specially important and beneficial for the membership sites
