Hello - I’m testing out implementing Automatic Platform Optimization for WordPress on my website. I’m testing results through Page Speed Insights and GT Metrix. Results look promising but also inconsistent when testing from different datacenters in the US. Also Page Speed Insights and GT Metrix seem to have much different results.
I have a couple of questions I was hoping someone could help me out with.
- After enabling APO how long before everything works across all data centers and show consistent results?
- I have disabled WP Rocket because I read that it is incompatible with APO. Is there another plugin that is recommended for deferring JS, lazy loading etc?
Thank you in advance.
Someone else will know more about Q1
For Q2: I use the Smush Wordpress Plugin for lazy loading etc and minify JS in CF settings
APO just enables cache for the HTML resources, and is effective immediately. You will see this reflected in the cf-cache-status header and apo headers. As with any cached resource, such as images, the first few visitors gets a MISS until the cache populates, and later visitors will get a HIT until that resource is purged, expired, or evicted.
I can’t comment about WP Rocket plans, there is an ongoing thread on github about making WP Rocket work nicely with APO.
You should test it out on your site as it may vary based on the content and site configuration.
