The first step in the guide to the Autoptimizer WordPress Plugin is installing the plugin for your website.

Installing the Plugin

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) On the Dashboard, scroll down the left-hand sidebar until you come to Plugins. Click on this and you will be taken to the Installed Plugins page.


Step 3) On the Installed Plugins page, there are two ways to add a new plugin. At the top of the screen, next to the Header, you can click on the Add New button. Alternatively, you can use the dropdown menu on the left-hand sidebar, underneath Plugins.


Step 4) On the Install Plugins page, type Autoptimizer into the search box and hit the button marked Search Plugins.


Step 5) On the search results page, scroll down until you find the desired plugin and hit Install Now. You should read the description on the right-hand side to ensure that your plugin is the right one and has all the features you require.


Activating the Plugin

Step 6) Once installed, you can activate the unpacked plugin by hitting the Activate Plugin button, which will take you to the Installed Plugin page, where the Autoptimizer plugin will be installed and ready to use.


The next step of the guide will focus on How to Configure the Settings for Autoptimize.

    Sorry, I your plug in will not install from the wordpress store.

    The install hangs up at the “Unpacking the package” just hangs on the screen.

    I went into the /plubing/autoptimize folder deleted the file and the autoptimze folder.

    I downloaded the zip file it and tried to get the zip file to install however I get to the point where “Unpacking the package” just hangs on the screen.

    If you can provide me with way to install your program I would appreciate it very much
