Support » Plugin: Use Google Libraries » How can I check that the plugin is working on my site

  • Resolved Big_Rich



    I installed the Use Google Libraries plugin on my site last week, hoping that it would speed it up.

    I cleared the cache in WP Super cache as suggested but haven’t seen any speed improvement.(I’m using the page speed function of “page rank status” tool in Google Chrome to check)

    I thought I’d wait a week bofore asking in case it took time for things to propegate or something.

    Is there any way that I can check if the plugin is working?

    Thank you

    You can view source on your page and see what the URLS in the script tags are.

    Hi jason,

    Thanks for replying

    Sorry for being a bit slow, does that mean that I shouldn’t see stuff like the following?

    <script type='text/javascript' src=' contentfoldername/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/js/jquery.form.min.js?ver=3.32.0-2013.04.03'></script>

    You probably should see that. That isn’t a library hosted by Google supported by WordPress core. What URL do you see for jQuery itself?


    I found this – which means its working right?

    <script type='text/javascript' src='//'>

    Its just that the site seems to load the same with or without the plugin active.

    That URL means it is working right. If you don’t notice any obvious difference, that’s a good thing.

    Assuming you don’t forcibly clear your cache (or it doesn’t expire out from lack of access) your browser will cache that file for a year (which is fine since it will never change, because each version has their own URL). Numerous other sites are also likely using that URL, it should already be cached for all sites that use it.

    I get you, so that means thattheres no way to really check because if I clear my cache to get rid of tha cached version of the page I also clearthe cached version of the script and have to load it again anyway. Just that I now load it from google instead of my site – right?

    If you see the URL you saw it is definitively really working. The multitude of reasons that improves performance is covered in the article linked from the README. Enjoy!

    Thanks a lot Jason
