Support » Plugin: Page Speed Optimization » The Plugin “Page Speed Optimization” has been removed from wordpress.org.

  • I got a notification from Wordfence that: The Plugin “Page Speed Optimization” has been removed from wordpress.org.
    Indeed I now can’t find it among my plugins or by searching in the wordpress plugins store. Has it actually been deleted and if so, why? I also want to know in case my site’s been hacked and the plugin removed in a malicious attack.
    Thanks!

  • As noted on it’s main page, this plugin was removed due to the plugin’s author violating community guidelines. More info can be found on the GitHub repo for this plugin.

    Basically the authors have split what would be one huge plugin into several plugins, for the purpose of allowing users to select only the features they want. Being primarily for making sites faster, they wanted to have all the plugins use the same namespace so the collection would efficiently operate as one.

    Unfortunately the WP people have a rule that all plugins are to have different namespaces. For most plugins this makes very good sense, but not when optimizing is the goal. But that didn’t matter to WP; Their moderator first made life hard for the authors, and when respectful complaints were made, banned all the plugins in toto.

    In effect, they have RULES for a reason, and they brook no discussion about their RULES. Who knows what’s really going on at WP. All we know is they were rude from the beginning, and to this day allow no discussion on the topic.

    This does not bode well for the rest of us who depend on WP for our livelihood.
