Gumlet – Automatically optimize all images and deliver via CDN

Description

  • Your images behind a CDN.
  • Automatically smaller and faster images with the Auto Format option.
  • Automatically smaller images with the Auto Compress option.
  • Use arbitrary Gumlet API params when editing <img> tags in “Text mode” and they will pass through.
  • No lock in! Disable the plugin and your images will be served as they were before installation.

Getting Started

If you don’t already have an Gumlet account then sign up at gumlet.com.

  1. Create a Web Folder gumlet source with the Base URL set to your WordPress root URL (without the wp-content part). For example, if your WordPress instance is at http://example.com and an example image is http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/image.jpg then your source’s Base URL would be just http://example.com/.

  2. Download the plugin wordpress-plugin.zip and install on your WordPress instance. In the WordPress admin, click “Plugins” on the right and then “Add New”. This will take you to a page to upload the worspress-plugin.zip file. Alternatively, you can extract the contents of wordpress-plugin.zip into the wp-content/plugins directory of your WordPress instance.

  3. Return to the “Plugins” page and ensure the “gumlet plugin” is activated. Once activated, click the “settings” link and populate the “Gumlet Host” field (e.g., http://yourcompany.gumlet.com). This is the full host of the gumlet source you created in step #1. Optionally, you can also turn on Auto Format or Auto Compress. Finally, click “Save Options” when you’re done.

  4. Go to a post on your WordPress blog and ensure your images are now serving through Gumlet.
