So, you are developing theme or customizing plugin and have made some changes to your custom stylesheet. You refresh your page and… nothing happens. You clear browser cache but stylesheet still not updating.
You may need to bulk resize images because you decided to serve scaled images and speed up your site at last. Or your theme layout has been changed and you need images resized accordingly.
This post will help you to fix this issue for: existing imagesfor images that will be uploaded later onboth for mobile and for desktop for different pages on your website, not only for that one that you’ve tested in GTmetrix First, what does it mean?
!! Before anything: make sure you made a backup! Remove unused images attachments (orphaned images that are not attached to any WordPress post, page or custom post) When you delete your posts, attachments from them don’t get deleted automatically.
Just one Adsense block can significantly slow down your website if added incorrectly. When you’ve got a few blocks on the page the impact multiplies. From today you will have no excuses to let Adsense harm your website performance anymore.

Login as root user through SSH (I prefer putty) To view crontab entries execute the following command: crontab -l To edit crontab directly you can use: crontab -e But for bulk editing it’s not really convenient, right?

I have been building networks of websites with WordPress Multisite since 2011, and improving WordPress performance since 2018. But believe me or not I had almost no experience of using WordPress as a visual editor, actually.
If you have bumped into that nasty Missed Schedule issue on your website ->>> you might want to check this post first. What is wp-cron.php? To answer this question we should understand what CRON itself is.
