Support » Plugin: WebP Express » fallback for safari?

  • Resolved GATHH

    (@golfasian)


    Hi there,
    We just noticed that our site’s images aren’t loading on Safari and Chrome on Ipad and Mac. Apparently Safari does not support webp format according to this:
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/250073758

    As such is there some way to provide a fallback for browsers that don’t support webp?

    Thank you.

  • Hi Rosell,
    Thank you for all your help so far. I really appreciate it.
    I have enabled cache key WebP option on all CDN nodes and cleared all CDN caches also, so images load fine now.
    However, I have disabled the plugin for now as it doesn’t seem to be changing img tags to picture tags for some reason. Maybe I can try the plugin again when you have added the CDN functionality? Maybe it will work then?
    Thank you anyways so far. I really appreciate your help very much.

    Ah, but you don’t need the Alter HTML functionality when the Varied Image Responses functionality works.

    Ok, I have turned off Alter HTML. How do I test that it works (i.e. that it is delivering webp images)? All I see are jpgs…

    You must change mode to “Varied image responses” and enable the two first redirections.

    Ok, that’s now done + all caches + CDN cleared again.
    Here are the new settings:

    Great. I have tested in Firefox 64 (which does not support webp), and I do not get webps. I do get webps in Chrome and Firefox 65.

    It works!

    You do not need the “Create webp files upon request” as there will be no references to unexisting webps on your site. So disable that.

    I see you have ewww over Gd. Good choice. Ewww provides better conversions than Gd.

    Thanks so much for confirming that it works. I have disabled โ€œCreate webp files upon requestโ€. How can I buy you a coffee or a beer? ๐Ÿ™‚
