I’ve read a few have used WP Rocket on their Symbio sites. Does anyone have recommended ideal settings to use? Also should Imagify by used on a stock a photo site? Lastly do you recommend disabling WordPress’s default image compression?
Thanks for any consideration

Old post but they are great questions. Shame support here is so lacking to get a responseJune 21, 2022 at 4:49 am #41174
Yeah thanks. No one ever answered what should be a fairly clear process that at least someone could/should have had a best practice guideline. They have very clearcut processes for switching to light sail but nothing on this.
That being said I did get a response from WPRocket/Imagify below:
This is Marko from Imagify, I’ll gladly assist you here!
There might be a workaround for this. As long as your original photos are larger than 2560px in width or height, WordPress itself will resize them to this value and append “-scaled” to their name. Imagify will optimize that one and its’ thumbnails, but the original image will stay intact.
So you would have:
– image-scaled.jpg (resized and optimized)
image.jpg will not be delivered to your visitors but will be available on the server, so you might put a direct link to that one for download.
Let me know if that would work for you. I am happy to help further if you need assistance.
Never tried it though as I moved off the project. Let me know if you find something though.

hello – generating thumbnails actually doesn’t have much to do with wp-rocket. it’s just how they are managed under wordpress. there are many plugins and settings here that can optimize them.
On the subject of wp-rocket, I have very good experience – as long as the product page does not need to be generated dynamically. Then wp-rockjet can generate a static html page. this relieves the server noticeably after a short time. and the delivery of the page is really faster!
but it is clear that wp-rocket always clears the cache when e.g. plugin-updates are installed. or something is changed on wp-rocket.
