WooCommerce Speed Drain Repair

Description

WooCommerce can really drain server resources and slow down the load of your site. This plugin stops loading the extra items you do not need inside WooCommerce and speeds up WordPress core admin-ajax.php file.

Adds the below function:

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'child_manage_woocommerce_styles', 99 );

function child_manage_woocommerce_styles() {
    //remove generator meta tag
    remove_action( 'wp_head', array( $GLOBALS['woocommerce'], 'generator' ) );

    //first check that woo exists to prevent fatal errors
    if ( function_exists( 'is_woocommerce' ) ) {
        //dequeue scripts and styles
        if ( ! is_woocommerce() && ! is_cart() && ! is_checkout() ) {
            wp_dequeue_style( 'woocommerce_frontend_styles' );
            wp_dequeue_style( 'woocommerce_fancybox_styles' );
            wp_dequeue_style( 'woocommerce_chosen_styles' );
            wp_dequeue_style( 'woocommerce_prettyPhoto_css' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'wc_price_slider' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'wc-single-product' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'wc-add-to-cart' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'wc-cart-fragments' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'wc-checkout' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'wc-add-to-cart-variation' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'wc-single-product' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'wc-cart' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'wc-chosen' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'woocommerce' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'prettyPhoto' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'prettyPhoto-init' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'jquery-blockui' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'jquery-placeholder' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'fancybox' );
            wp_dequeue_script( 'jqueryui' );
        }
    }
 }

If you are are curious what exactly the above function does, we can explain more clearly as to what its doing. Its important to know what you are installing

This plugin instructs WP to not load the huge variety of WooCommerce scripts unless the user is on a WooCommerce page.

So the Non-WooCommerce pages of the site will surely load faster since many of these WooCommerce scripts are loaded on each and every page. The store itself will have some memory saved using this plugin, so the WooCommerce pages will be faster as well.

To sum it up, this plugin will turn off the WooCommerce heavy script on Non-WooCommerce pages which we see very valuable because if you are marketing your site well, there should be a blog and these pages will be Non-WooCommerce which will be indexed and drive traffic to products. Almost all visitors will land on a Non-WooCommerce page in most e-commerce sites.

There is NO EASIER or FASTER way to speed up WooCommerce sites

Causes issues with cart button and count

As the user cesneris said on April 11, 2017, this plugin causes the cart button to work improperly. I had exactly the same problem as this user had. So it’s not the theme’s issue, it’s the plugin’s issue.
Fix this problem, please

Activation crashed

The activation of this plugin was stopped by wordpress because it crashed the site. After that it was deinstalled, but actually it had left some traces of its installation. I removed the strings fron theme’s functions.php which are shown on this plugin page. Could the author tell me if there’s any more traces left by the plugin?
