This simple yet highly effective plugin solves a very common annoyance when developing a WordPress website locally. Often, when running a WordPress application locally for development, you don’t have the entire uploads directory at hand. This causes every page load to trigger a large amount of 404 errors, each of which are routed to expensive WordPress requests.
Super Interactive Image Placeholders will automatically replace each request for an image with a random image from Lorem Picsum, avoiding the 404 errors and speeding up local WordPress development enormously. As a nice side effect, it will also make your website look a lot nicer without all the missing images.
- Upload the ‘si-placeholder-images’ folder to your plugins directory
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in your WordPress admin
How did you come up with this plugin?
Super Interactive specializes in high-level WordPress development. We work on large sites with huge upload directories. Having to sync the uploads with our local development environments for all our projects is a pain. This tiny plugin saves us loads of time while developing. We figured others could benefit from it as well.
