This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Turbolinks extracted from Rails, for use with WordPress. Turbolinks uses JavaScript to follow links, so the browser doesn’t have to download and process JavaScript and CSS files again. In other words, it should make your site faster. From the project page:

Turbolinks makes following links in your web application faster. Instead of
letting the browser recompile the JavaScript and CSS between each page change, it
keeps the current page instance alive and replaces only the body and the title in
the head. Think CGI vs persistent process.

Want to know more? See the Turbolinks project page for implementation details, compatibility caveats, and more information.

Also includes jquery.turbolinks for jQuery support.

The idea is to just enable the plugin and make your blog faster. Sites with heavy JavaScript may have some problems, and is not necessarily recommended. There are documented workarounds and fixes for popular JavaScript libraries located at the Turbolinks Compatibility project.

There are probably a lot of bugs. Please report them!
