Love this plugin or want to help the LocalHero Project? Please consider making a donation.I wanted a simple lightweight to speed up my website by preventing wordpress fully booting up when a page request for a static resource is made that results in a 404 not found.
- Move the ‘lh-404s-for-static-resources’ folder to the
/wp-content/plugins/directory OR search for ‘LH 404s for static resources’ and add the plugin using WordPress plugin browser.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ page in WordPress
- That is it, this is deliberately a simple plugin that does one thing only!
How does this plugin help?
By detault when wordpress encounters a missing page it will not only send a 404 error but also fully boot up and serve an entire page (without caching).
This causes an unnecessary strain on your server. This especially unneccessary when serving requests for mssing static files. This plugin prevents a full boot. Saving your server and speeding up the visitor experience.
What is something does not work?
LH Sortable Tables, and all https://lhero.org plugins are made to WordPress standards. Therefore they should work with all well coded plugins and themes. However not all plugins and themes are well coded (and this includes many popular ones).
If something does not work properly, firstly deactivate ALL other plugins and switch to one of the themes that come with core, e.g. twentyfirteen, twentysixteen etc.
If the problem persists pleasse leave a post in the support forum: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/lh-404s-for-static-resources/ . I look there regularly and resolve most queries.
What if I need a feature that is not in the plugin?
