    Hello Abel,

    Thanks to comment our post. Indeed it is a very interesting subject that we want to develop aside in another article. Plugins in WordPress are several that make very well this function. We used €œCompress JPEG & png images€ of Tiny png and is the one that we like more.

    If you do not want to install no plugin tambén you can use the utility that facilitates Google in PageSpeed. In case you do not know it, we can indicate to you that any URL that you analyze with PageSpeed you can unload the optimized resources .css, .js and also the images. The advantage of this system is that it compresses them to the maximum, but the disadvantage is that you must go URL to URL, whereas with plugin previously mentioned you can simultaneously do it with all.

    Another still more comfortable option is to use plugin in the Control Panel. In ours hostings you can optimize all the photos of the public directory with a single click. In brief dates we will publish an article mainly this. Thanks!

    Hello, thanks for your work, are helpful. You will see I have a problem for days. When sharing my texts from WordPress on Facebook, do not appear the image, the outstanding image that I have selected for the text. I have gone in repeated occasions To purify image, social adjustments, other times has given result me but now it is impossible. It appears a piece of text and the name of the page, but neither it leaves the photo, nor the name of the author of the text as before. It can be a problem related to the speed of the Web? GRACIAS

      Hello Sea, that problem that you comment not is related in principle to the speed of your Web. Rather it seems a problem of schema or of which you do not have qualified the labels of Open Graph in your Web.

      Facebook has a utility (debug) that will show to you if that URL has some type of error in noticeable the Open Graph. Here I leave the URL you:

      If you do not have the labelling, you would have to review if you have some plugin that does it to you, for example the Yoast SEO allows you to form the images to show them on Facebook.

It leaves a commentary
