[resolved] [Plugin: WP Smush.it] Bulk Smush.it runs in background? (6 posts)

    I am running the Bulk Smush.it and it seems to be working so far. I have over 15,000 images, so I was wondering if it keeps running in the background even after I close the window?

    Also, when I open another window and go to Bulk Smush.it again, I don't see the updating list of processed images.

    If I close the window, how will I know if it's still smushing?



  2. If I close the window, how will I know if it's still smushing?

    Likely it's not. Don't close that window until it's done.

    Well the page stopped updating after a couple of hundred images. I'm guessing that means it is no longer smushing right?

    It won't keep working if you close the window -- that ends the connection to your server.

    You should be able to re-run the bulk smush whenever you need to -- it won't re-process successful images. A more granular bulk smush option is coming in the next version, too.

    Thanks Alex! Great plugin! I think I'll write a post about it on my blog!

    Alex, thanks for the info. I'm curious: how does it know if an image has been smushed? Does does it have a new .jpg header?

    Assuming that there are a lot of images (thousands), I was wondering if smush.it bulk always starts checking from the first image, or if it keeps a list of which ones it needs to process and start immediately by the next one that needs smushing.

    Cool plug-in!
