    Hi

    So other then minify CSS and JS, with plugins like autoptimize, should we use any cache plugins or are they irrelevant? What about plugins that optimize images to webp?

    Hey @t0mmyz,

    you don’t need a caching plugin anymore. As your entire website is made out of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript using a cache plugin will not really give you many benefits.

    They are getting cached by the user’s browser and as there are no dynamic requests like pulling data from the database needed, caching is not really relevant here.

    Besides Autooptimize, I highly recommend something like:
    https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-asset-clean-up/

    or

    https://perfmatters.io/ (paid plugin)

    to reduce the number of HTTP requests per site.

    Also, image optimization has a huge impact on performance and applies also to static sites. Using webp is definitely useful.

    Best regards,
    Patrick
