Host Google Analytics Locally

Unless you’re a huge fan of irony, you may be tired of Google telling you to “leverage browser caching” for their own Analytics tracking files.Host Google Analytics Locally Unless you’re a huge fan of irony, you may be tired of Google telling you to “leverage browser caching” for their own Analytics tracking files. In 3.1 we’ve introduce a new one-click, Google Tracking add-on to take care of hosting these files locally.

Minify & Combine Inline JavaScript and External JavaScript

Another pain point of Google PageSpeed is the infamous “remove render-blocking JavaScript” message.

In 3.1 we’ve revamped our minify and combine JS feature. This one should make getting rid of render-blocking JS messages a breeze. Now when you activate Combine JavaScript Files, we take all inline JS code and all external JS files and include them in one combined JS file loaded in the footer of your site. Voila, no more render-blocking!

Activate it in: File Optimization > JavaScript Files > Minify, Combine

Optimization of WooCommerce’s get refreshed fragments

If you run speed tests for your site you’ll be used to seeing that long bar for:
?wc-ajax=get_refreshed_fragments

amerce -get_refreshed_fragments

In WP Rocket 3.1, that request will be optimized to reduce the load time.

Activate it in: In 3.1, WP Rocket automagically optimizes and shortens this request. There’s no need to activate this feature, it just happens!

Compatibility for WPML and WooCommerce Multilingual

We also have an important new compatibility to announce between WPML and WooCommerce Multilingual. Now changing currency is caching compatible so that prices are correctly displayed. Meteor-sized thanks go to David Watkins for making that happen!
