Plugin slows down your site and lacking active support

  • This plugin slows down your site and negatively impacts your PageSpeed. I contacted the plugin author and he claimed he was going to correct this within a few days. And that’s already a couple of weeks ago… This plugin itself does what it states; I have had no issues with the function itself.

    Hi ckhNL, I have updated the plugin to version 4.0, which includes re-factoring of about 60% of the code. Images are still not compressed into a sprite yet, but that will come next.

    Let me know if that helps, and if you would consider revising your review.

    Sorry for the delay – I have been very busy so had push things back.

    Also, the Google functionality used in this plugin is setup to load after everything else on the page has loaded, so that definitely affects page speed.

    Premium version loads inline with the other components of the page, so I think it may help. If that is not an option for you, I understand…

    Are the js and css files of the ‘Floating Widge’t now only included by default if this Floating Widget is actually used?

    The standard Google functionality actually doesn’t effect page speed. This as the js’s are only loaded after the page has loaded. I don’t have the premium version, so I can’t say it this effects page speed.

    Hi ckhNL, thanks for responding. I’m trying to find your email address – can you submit message once again here – http://www.wp-studio.net/contact/ – I’m going to send you an updated file with the script issue fixed.

    No, I didn’t update that specific aspect in version 4.0, but I had re-factored much of the other code as part of that update. So I’m going to send you a modified file with both re-factored code and the floating widget script disabled if turned off. Then with the next update this will be taken care of anyway.

    Sorry friend I have been out of sorts due to work….

    Hi ckhNL, I went ahead and updated the plugin to version 4.0.1.

    Now floating widget scripts do NOT load when it’s disabled, either in Dashboard or on the front end.

    Also, there should be no PHP errors, as I have eliminated the errors I have seen in debug.

    Hopefully you will try again, and also consider anything but a 1 star.

    Thanks again, I’m sorry for such a lag in response time.

    Hi ckhNL, thanks for posting. Hey if you like the plugin better now, would you consider revising your review?

    I’m planning on moving images to a sprite and also consolidating more code in the future as well.

    But no pressure… 🙂
