What can I set on the settings page?

Set JPG quality of images

With a value between 1 – 100 you can determine the (JPG) quality of the uploaded images. For example, it is advisable to set the value to 55-65 for ordinary projects in order to save about 50% of the data volume that is transferred with each page view. If the value is entered later, images must be uploaded again or the thumbnails must be recalculated (plugin! ).

Quality 82/20kb
WordPress Standard
Quality 72 / 15kb
Still very very good
Quality 62 / 13kb
Still very good
Quality 52 / 12kb
Still good
Quality 42 / 10kb
Fast and okay
Quality 32 / 9kb
Under 50 it gets bad
Quality 22 / 7kb
Quality 12 / 5kb

Enable automatic alt attributes for all images

This is important if you pay attention to proper file names and want to use them optimally from an SEO point of view. The title is then automatically output as a caption under each integrated image!

Allow SVG uploads in the media library

Only switch on when you need it! SVG can be loaded into the media library and used in posts/pages!

Activate Gutenberg – full page width

Avalanche at Daniel Mountain

Disable Gutenberg Custom Inline Styles

Performance boost by not loading the styles in the frontend!

Disable emojis

If this does not load the style, “smileys” will no longer be automatically converted, but you can still use emoticons: 😁 – Performance boost!

Turn off comments function

If you use WordPress as CMS, you can actually turn off the comment function!

Turn off XMLRPC

Safety-relevant and hardly needs one! Except when using WordPress apps.

Remove Admin Bar from Frontend

If the admin bar in the frontend is annoying, here you can simply turn it off!

Remove Embed CSS from frontend

Performance boost due to less CSS in the frontend. If you use embeds, just turn it back on!

Turn off Default Fullscreen Editor

WordPress has the peculiarity to jump back to the “Fullscreen Editor Mode” again and again when reinstalling if you don’t want that, just turn it off here!

Encrypt emails

Turn off WordPress Heartbeat

WordPress saves posts/pages automatically – you can turn this off here

Script Style W3C-compliant integration

If styles or script are integrated (plugins/or in the template) then they are often not W3C-compliant. By activating it, you can do it here!

<script type="script">myScript</script> <script>myScript</script>

Activate jQuery

By default, jQuery is disabled on this WordPress theme, why? Performance and often no great benefit. If you still want to use jQuery, you can activate it here!

Better Gutenberg Admin Style

With this option you can set an improved view of the blocks, so empty blocks are marked in yellow and you know immediately when you reach a block with the mouse which one you select:
