    Got the BIG warning that you’re breaking this plugin up into 3 different standalone plugins; because that’s what users want… 3 more plugins to install. I played along and installed WebP Uploads. Uninstalled Performance. The outcome: nothing. No menu whatsoever for Webp settings. Uploaded an image, no webp conversion.

    If your goal was to waste my time… mission accomplished.

    Thanks for taking the time to write a review, and sorry to hear of your experience @xxswakxx.

    If you uninstalled the Performance Lab plugin and then installed the WebP uploads plugin, you won’t have a dedicated page with settings, as this isn’t part of the WebP Uploads plugin. You will see one additional option within your media settings (Settings > Media > Generate JPEG files in addtion to WebP), but no dedicated settings page.

    In relation to no WebP files being generated, it’s possible that this may be due to the image you uploaded already being optimized. If this is the case, any WebP version of that file generated, may be larger in file size than the original JPEG. There is no conversion in such cases. It is possible to change the image conversion settings via a filter which I’m happy to help out with if you wish.

    Let me know if you have any questions with the above. You can also keep the Performance Lab plugin active if you wish to avail of the other features such as the health checks and performance indicators.

    Greeting. What interests me: does this plugin after converting the image to webp offer the appropriate format if the user’s browser can read it? I still use jpg for the English version of my website because I guess some browsers don’t support webp yet. It would be good if your plugin would convert the images and offer them depending on the type of browser, because then it would make sense.

    @darkonelson When uploading any JPEG image, the JPEG version of that image will remain on your filesystem. Regarding the JPEG version being served, we did this discuss this type of support previously, see below:
    https://github.com/WordPress/performance/issues/341

    Can you provide me with an example of a browser you’re using that doesn’t support WebP and I can perform some checks?

    Thanks for quick response. A couple of people in the WP group claimed that jpg format is better because maybe older versions of browsers can’t read it, although I know that today almost everyone reads WebP format.

    @darkonelson JPEG images can be optimized if you’re looking to lower the file size. There are online applications such as Squoosh.app and others that allow you to preview and determine image output sizes.

    @xxswakxx Are you still encountering issues? If so I’d be happy to assist. Feel free to share more details such as whether the images you were trying to upload were already optimized.
