That is very likely not an error from this plugin. EWWW IO does not remove images by default (unless you’ve turned on conversion options and told it to delete the originals). This plugin cannot cause 403 errors, that is a problem with something else: another plugin, something in your .htaccess file, or some crazy apache config…
Something similar happened to me. I updated to version 1.8.4 and more of 50% image links broke. Pictures are still in the Media library (I can edit them and see them inside the editor) but links are broken.
The speed of the website loading since the update has decreased dramatically! Images load very slowly…
Any hint to solve that or recover the older version of the plugin?
Every version of the plugin of the plugin ever released can be found on this page: http://wordpress.org/plugins/ewww-image-optimizer/developers/
I doubt very much it will help, but if you DO manage to find that an older version works flawlessly, let me know.
1.8.3 didn’t help either, but I don’t remember which version I had before updating…
Anyway, I have noticed that all image links having “-” in their tittle have been broken. Does it help for understanding why the pluggin is breaking the links?
no, that does not help, as ‘-‘ is what wordpress substitutes by default for all files that have spaces in their names, so it is pretty common. Were you on 1.7.6? Do you remember when was the last time you updated the plugin (prior to the 1.8.4 update)?
One last question, are you using the WP Retina plugin?
I think last update was around mid-february. I have seen a file in my plugin file dating on february 19th.
Hmm, can you provide an example of the path to one of the images that is ‘broken’?
I have rebuild the links now, but what worries me is the slow speed for uploading pages with images. Do you have a hint of what can happen? It was much quicker before the update…
Thanks for your help!
That is quite strange, the plugin should only be getting quicker with newer releases. I’ve made quite an effort to ensure that it isn’t loading anything unnecessary.
However, if there is another plugin on your site that is rendering images on demand, and not caching them, this could cause a slow-down, as the page will have to wait for those rendered images to be optimized.
How much of a slowdown are you seeing?
What do you mean by a plugin “rendering images on demand”? Sorry I am not an expert in these fields :-).
I am using SEO friendly images which “Automatically adds alt and title attributes to all your images. Improves traffic from search results and makes them W3C/xHTML valid as well”. I don’t know if that could interfere.
I am also working in WP Multisite.
I can see the images progressively loading, including background image. It takes about 30sec.
Yeah, that is exactly what I was talking about, although just thinking about it, it doesn’t seem like it is EWWW IO causing the problems, but I can certainly take a look and see if I can replicate the behavior. Is the name of the plugin just SEO Friendly Images?
I had it already with the older version of EWWW IO, but it is perhaps interacting differently with the newest one…
