Ruined all my website alignment
By , for WP 4.5.3

I have installed this plugin to make my website faster. But this plugin ruined all my website alignment. Very sad plugin for me.

Nothing Smushed. Up-sell emphasized.
By , for WP 4.5.1

Well, that was a waste of installation cycles. I have nine (9) images on my site in the media library - they are intentionally large to be full-screen background images. In the 'Bulk Smush' mode, it flags every image as "exceeding size limits" and does nothing.

I'll bet the Pro version will fix that, eh?

Bad response from optimizer

Simply doesn't work as described

Spam Plus
By ,

Downloaded, installed and deleted from the plugins list. The free plugin is rubbish and the aim is to spam your admin with their overhyped overpriced premium plugin. Do yourself a favour and download EWWW Image Optimizer - way better and free.

Promotion for their Pro version.
By , for WP 4.4.2

What I find is this plugin is actually Promotion for their Pro version - just check their description page.

Happy smushing...

Don't do it
By ,

Added code into my site which made all the photos disappear. I had to reinstall or try to locate them in my media library. It took an entire day but I've recovered most of the site minus images that came with my WP theme. Set me back a day of work to fix it.

It's crashing my Optimize Press Site
By , for WP 4.4

All the images that get smushed, which is all of them now as they are uploaded, fail to appear in my media library. So buttons and images are just empty files.. the files say they are there but they don't show up.. So tons of images and buttons disappeared off my site and it took me forever to figure it out. my images and buttons are still gone and I don't know how to get them back.. Also I can't upload new ones because they are smushed automatically and therefore, ruined.. I don't know if there is a work around for this or not.. I'm thinking I'm going to have to unistall WP SMUSH in order for my site to get back up and running.
