    Hi, Actually it’s a great plugin and i really like it but i have a strange problem with it!

    My site score at “” is 99 which is great and i have done a lot of work to get that. i installed the plugin and did a test and the score drop down to 76!! Please see the screen shots
    Before and After

    I did combined and minified all js and css files without any problems but the problem still remains.
    Now i deactivate the plugin so the score back to 99.

    Would you please help?

    Hi elhafez, thanks for your post –

    This is probably due to a few things:

    1) Adding Google Translate is an outside website tool that requires a connection to Google. Even with no features this would slow down your site.

    2) Images are loaded separately in the plugin – I will be working to make this better in the future.

    3) Coding structure – there are a few places where the coding could be trimmed to make things more efficient, but I would say this is less important than the above 2 items.

    This will take some time, so I will kindly ask your patience until I can update in the next version – most likely 1 month until next update.


    I appreciate you reply and as i said, i really like the plugin so i hope you could fix that in the next releases.

    Thank you.

    Hi elhafez, I just updated the plugin to 4.0.1. As of now #3 above has been improved.

    I’ll be working on an image sprite for all the flags in the next few updates – not sure when it’s going to happen yet.
