3 years, 4 months ago
The images used for thumbnails are full-sized images, that get resized.
This is killing for PageSpeed, and delivers red markers.
How can I adjust the core coding such that YARPP uses the thumbnails that are built inside WordPress instead of taking the full-sizes images?
Thanks a million!!!
I just checked: because of this strange way of using full-sized images instead of the existing WP-thumbnails, my loss in PageSpeed ranking is down from 96 to 83, for the pages on which I use YARPP…
High price to pay…!
Please make sure you (a) set the optimized thumbnail size using add_image_size( 'yarpp-thumbnail', $width, $height, true ); and (b) ran Regenerate Thumbnails (or similar) to make sure correctly-sized thumbnails are created for each post.
add_image_size( 'yarpp-thumbnail', $width, $height, true );
These issues are addressed in the FAQ.
