Description

Help eliminate render blocking JavaScript with Async JavaScript Pro.

Async JavaScript Pro works by adding an ‘async’ or ‘defer’ tag to JavaScripts loaded using the WordPress wp_enqueue_script function.

When a JavaScript file is normally loaded the rest of the website will stop loading until the JavaScript file has finished loading.  When you consider that most websites will load multiple JavaScript files this can dramatically slow down the display time of a page. This is known as render blocking.

To prevent this JavaScript files can be set to load asynchronously or deferred. When a JavaScript file is set to load asynchronously it will load the JavaScript file whilst still allowing the rest of the website to load at the same time.  When a JavaScript file is set to be loaded deferred, the rest of the website will load first and then the JavaScript file will load.

Async JavaScript Pro features include:

  • Quick Settings;
  • Set option to load JavaScript files asynchronously or deferred;
  • Set individual method for jQuery;
  • Set scripts to have ‘async’ applied to them;
  • Set scripts to have ‘defer’ applied to them;
  • Set scripts to be excluded from being loaded asynchronously or deferred;
  • Set plugins to have local scripts excluded;
  • Set themes to have local scripts excluded;
  • GTmetrix integration;
  • Autoptimize support.

Async JavaScript Pro can be installed within your WordPress installation after purchase and download by navigating to Plugins > Add New
