Support » Plugin: AMP for WordPress » Native AMP is the future

  • With release 0.7.0, this excellent plugin supports Native AMP for many websites. Though it does not yet support bbPress, for simple WordPress websites, it just works. I used it with the AMPCONF theme, which is now upgraded to AMP News.

    Adding code for AdSense and Tag Manager was easy. So within a day I had a super-fast website, with very few issues.

    For anyone contemplating adopting Native AMP now, I recommend you do thorough preparation. Especially to replace or amend forms, iframes, and any pages that rely on scripts. Also, note that you should carefully test your theme. Because, despite the good advice on this plug-in Wiki, most themes will simply not work with Native AMP. I am aware that the development team plan to improve compatibility features in future releases.

    One particularly outstanding feature of this plugin is the prompt support in the forum here and on GitHub.

    Finally, I should emphasize that this is my review running the plugin with Native AMP. I’m also experimenting with ‘paired mode’ on a separate website. That also seems to work very well out of the box.

    Thank you.

    That’s right. Theme compatibility is greatly improved in 1.0-alpha.
