What can RocketCDN do for you?
In a nutshell, it is a feature to improve the display speed of your site.
Cache your site's content on servers around the world and serve content from the server closest to your visitors.
This improves site loading speed.
Advanced caching functions and optimization
Responding to surges in access
These effects can be expected.
I have it set to off.You do not need to activate it. It is optional.
Information about the theme, other activated plugins, server type, etc. will be sent to WP Rocket.
They do not send information such as domain names, email addresses, IP addresses, or third-party API keys.
However, there is no advantage to enabling it, so it can be turned off.
The following items do not need to be set and should be skipped.
Frequently Asked Questions
Let's set up WP Rocket in earnest.
Select "CACHE" from the left sidebar.
Cache settings on this page.
Check Enable caching for mobile devices.
Mobile Cache is a cache optimized for smartphone devices.
It is used to improve the speed of pages loaded on mobile phones.
Turn off "Enable Caching for logged-in WordPress User".
This setting controls whether or not caching is enabled for the user when logged into WordPress.
Being logged in may result in the display of individual content and information. Therefore, enabling caching may result in inappropriate content being displayed to logged-in users.
By turning off,It will ensure that the content is always up-to-date.
Cache Lifespan" is set to 24 hours.This number is optional.
My reason for setting the Cache Lifespan to 24 hours is to optimize site performance and cache efficiency.
Setting a cache expiration date ensures that old cache files are periodically deleted and the latest content is cached.
Next, configure the file optimization settings.
If you are using other similar WordPress plugins, please make sure that your settings do not duplicate those plugins. For example; Autoptimize, etc.
Your server may also offer optimization features. For example, the Thin rental server I use offers a unique acceleration feature called "XPageSpeed".
These features should be turned off; they duplicate WP Rocket settings.
The first step is to set the CSS optimization settings.
Minify CSS files
Minify CSS files is turned on.
This setting exists to improve page display speed.
Reducing the size of the CSS will reduce site loading time and make the site more pleasant for visitors to browse.
Site loading speed is very important, especially for visitors browsing on smartphones.
Excluded CSS Files
Excluded CSS Files does not need to be set.
This function is a setting for specifying the URLs of CSS files to be excluded from Minify. Using this setting, you can exclude specific CSS files from minimization.
Certain CSS files will not be minimized and will be loaded on the site in their original form.
Optimize CSS delivery
Optimize CSS Delivery is onto the And,Remove Unused CSS is selected.
This feature optimizes site performance. It eliminates CSS that blocks rendering.
We also select "Remove Unused CSS" which removes unused CSS to improve the loading speed of the site.
JS also runs the risk that other plug-ins may not work or display properly if they fail to be configured.
Therefore, set up carefully.
It may increase the site display speed. However, this feature is not suitable for some sites and is turned off.
Your site visitors will be able to browse pages without stress.
"One-click exclusions" should be turned off.
This function allows you to select with a single click the files and plug-ins for which you wish to avoid delayed loading.
Turn off this time.
No special settings are required.
Next, configure the MEDIA settings. Optimize mainly for images and videos.
LazyLoad is a mechanism that loads images and videos that do not need to be displayed immediately when a visitor views a site, but only when they are displayed on the screen.
Enabling it will speed up the speed at which the site opens.
The LazyLoad settings in WP Rocket allow you to choose whether or not to use this feature for each of the important images on your site, images used in the background, and so on.
Enable for images is on
Enable for CSS background images is on
Enable for CSS background images is off
It is set up this way.
The above configuration applies LazyLoad to the image and CSS background image.
On the other hand, LazyLoad is not applied to iframes or videos.
Add missing image dimensions
Turn on "Add missing image dimensions".
The reason for this setting is that the page layout may change if the image being inserted does not have width and height attributes.
Without width and height attributes on the image, there is a risk that the image will be resized when the page is loaded.
If this happens, the layout of the page may change.
Therefore, by setting up automatic addition of width and height attributes to the image, the size of the image can be determined when the page loads, preventing layout collapses.
This is one of WP Rocket's features and is a method for optimizing page loading.
Turn on Activate Preloading.
Enabling WP Rocket will automatically save all URLs from within the sitemap to the database.
As a result, the cache is always preloaded.
Reduce server load
These effects are expected.
This is one of WP Rocket's features and is a method for optimizing page loading.
Turn on Preload Links.
This setting is a feature that allows visitors to download the page when they hover over the link, thereby reducing loading time!
Prefetch DNS Requests
No particular setting.
This feature is designed to speed up the loading of external files and is especially effective on mobile networks. Enabling this feature improves the loading speed of external files.
No particular setting.
Allows browsers to detect fonts in CSS files more efficiently. Improves font loading speed.
Note that the font must be hosted on its own domain or on the domain specified in the CDN tab.
This is a more applied setting. No special settings are required.
Never Cache URL(s)
This setting is to specify the URLs of fixed pages and posts that should not be cached.
For example, a custom login/logout URL.
Used to exclude pages from the cache.
Never Cache Cookies
This setting is to prevent pages from being cached if certain cookies are set in the visitor's browser.
If you specify a cookie ID, you can disable the cache if that cookie is set.
Never Cache User Agent(s)
This setting prevents pages from being cached if they contain certain user agent strings.
For example, you can disable the cache for visitors using Safari on their smartphones.
Always Purge URL(s)
Use this setting if you need to remove the cache for a specific URL when you update a particular post or fixed page.
Cache Query String(s)
This setting forces caching for specific GET parameters.
You can enable caching of specific GET parameters on pages that serve different content depending on the GET parameter.
This setting is used to delete unnecessary data in the database.
Turn all on.
Revisions: Turning on deletes the history of changes (revisions) to articles and pages. This saves space in the database.
Auto Drafts: Automatically deletes drafts that have been created. Unnecessary drafts are not left in the database and the database is organized.
Trashed Posts: automatically removes posts that exist in the Trash from within the database.
Turn all on.
Spam Comments: Spam comments are permanently deleted. The spam comment will disappear from the database.
Trashed Comments: Comments that have been moved to the trash are permanently deleted. Unwanted comments will not remain in the database.
I had set up WordPress to "flag comments with URLs as spam," which caused all comments with URLs to be automatically deleted. In case you have such a setting, please turn off Spam Comments.
Turn on All Transients.
Temporary options (transients) are removed. These are automatically regenerated by the plugin as needed. Deletion is safe.
Turn on Optimize Tables.
Simply put, it is the ability to clean up the database, make better use of space, and increase speed.
Organize tables in the database
Remove wasted space
Streamline data placement
Doing so will make the database run faster and reduce disk space requirements.
Schedule Automatic Cleanup is optional,Weekly Frequency" would be fine.
Databases are cleaned regularly at a weekly frequency. The database is always organized.
Many are.No setup required.
WP Rocket's CDN feature is a mechanism that stores your website's static files (CSS, JS, images, etc.) on servers around the world to speed up your site, and delivers these files from the nearest server when a visitor accesses your site.
This feature improves website loading speed.
High site traffic
Visitors from all over the world access
In that case, you may want to consider it.
The Exclude files from CDN setting is also omitted.
Control Heartbeat is turned off.
The WordPress Heartbeat API is a periodic communication function between WordPress and the browser.
Enables real-time synchronization of information.
Heartbeat is useful
A simple example is the auto-save of a WordPress post, which performs an automatic save of the post content every 60 seconds.
This function provides peace of mind in the unlikely event of problems such as closing a page by mistake.
The rest serves to prevent conflicts when multiple people are editing the same content. (It is also used for dashboard notifications and session information updates.)
Although this is a useful feature, it places a high load on the server when there are many users logging in.
In our experience, Heartbeat does not slow down the site that much.Unless there are special circumstances, I think it is fine offline.
Add-on settings.No special settings are required.
If you are using Cloudflare or Sucuri, please go to this page to configure your settings.
WP Rocket users who do not use these do not need to set them.
One of WP Rocket's shortcomings. It is.They won't even compress the image files."This is the point.
If you want to compress image files, you will need to use another image compression WordPress plugin.
The recommended plugin for WP Rocket is Imagify.
This is a useful plugin that compresses the file size of image files in WordPress without degrading their quality.
You can compress up to 200 images per month for free. However, free account registration is required. We will not set this up at this time.
By the way, my recommended image compression plugin is ShortPixel. I also use ShortPixel on this blog ▼
Tools does not set them.
In this page, you can configure settings related to WP Rocket.
You can freely export and import WP Rocket settings.
Also, if you experience problems with your current WP Rocket, you can use Rollback to revert to an earlier version.
The "Update Inclusion and Exclusion Lists" setting is not required.
Simply put, it is a function to manage lists of what to process and what not to process. The settings are not necessary and are omitted.
