Quick Start Guide

We’ve built WP Compress to be effortless past set up, for a lifetime of hands free performance.

The Basics

The software is comprised of two parts centralized management portal and a WordPress plugin that you can quickly install on the sites you’d like to optimize!

Login to Portal

The first place to start is by logging in to the management portal.

Add New Website

In the top right of the portal, click ‘Add New Website’ to start the walkthrough.

Select Your Quota

We recommend a shared quota for a personal or trusted website, or you may set a monthly quota for a client’s website based on your care plans.

One-time credits can be added to any quota as overflow credits and all quotas may be changed at anytime after a website is connected!

Install the Plugin

Go to your WordPress Admin Panel and install the plugin, either download the latest version or search for WP Compress in the Add New Plugin section.

If you need additional help installing a new plugin, our friends over at WP Beginner have put together a step-by-step guide.

Enter Your Access Key

Once installed, click get the bar that says Get Started and paste your access key that was created in the management portal.

Your access key is how we’ll communicate with your WordPress website for things like remote management, monthly quotas and statistics.

Configure Settings

The default settings are now active; however, you may modify settings as you wish within the plugin, or remotely from the management portal.

You can serve CSS and JavaScript files via the CDN and if you’re on the professional plan or higher,  you may set up a Custom CDN Domain if desired.

Feel free to play around with the default or advanced settings for real time optimization as any changes can be reverted by toggling off a specific setting and clearing the cache from the top menu bar.

Congrats, You're All Set!

You’re all set up with real-time optimization, now you’re an expert and should be able to set up your next website in just about 60 seconds!
