Support » Plugin: Smush Image Compression and Optimization » not working

  • Resolved jbhphx


    Have used the plugin before on other sites with great success. Installed on current site, and it simply doesn’t work. When I click now! on an image in the media library, it works for longer than I would expect and then, when it stops working on it, nothing has changed. The file still shows as not processed.

    Here’s what I’ve tried: Deactivating and reactivating the plugin; uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin; disabling caching plugins that do anything to image files.

    Any help that can be provided would be appreciated.

  • @jbhphx,

    On the current version of the plugin go to Settings > Media. Then look for the section. Set the debug output option and save the options.

    Then go to Media > Bulk and run the bulk Let us know if you get any output.

    Lots of output. The common error is “No savings” but I know these images are not optimized. When I run them through Kraken I get as much as a 90% savings. Here’s an example of the output:

    DEBUG: attachment_file_path=[/home/content/e/l/e/elementds/html/99dollarsocial/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/300×2506.jpg]

    Hey there,

    I downloaded your image and uploaded it to my test site, which is using the latest version of WP, it also reported no savings for me. I then tried a couple of other images and they Smushed and the amount saved was reported.

    Do other images work for you? Maybe it’s just not possible to optimize some of them.

    Thanks, Mike. It seems to be working well now. Not sure what the issue was before. I appreciate your help!
