Lazy Loader

Descrição

Lazy loading plugin that supports images, iFrames, video and audio elements and uses the lightweight lazysizes script. With manual modification of the markup it is also possible to lazy load background images, scripts, and styles.

Lazy loads (without the need of any manually modifications):

  • Images inserted via img or picture in posts, pages, Custom Post Types, Text Widgets, …
  • Post thumbnails.
  • Inline background images.
  • Or all images and other enabled media in the markup (that is not excluded or already has a lazy loading attribute), via the option to process the complete markup.
  • iFrames.*
  • Video elements.*
  • Audio elements.*

* Can be enabled in the plugin options.

The plugin comes with the following options (under Settings › Media › Lazy Loader options):

  • Do not lazy load elements with specific CSS classes (you can use the class skip-lazy by default).
  • Add filters that should be processed by Lazy Loader.
  • Enable lazy loading for iFrames.
  • Include the lazysizes native loading plugin that modifies images and iFrames to use the native lazy loading feature of browsers that already support it.
  • Include the lazysizes unveilhooks plugin that adds support for more elements, for example, video and audio elements.*
  • Enable lazy loading for the poster frame of video elements.
  • Enable lazy loading for audio elements.
  • Enable lazy loading for inline background images.
  • Display a loading spinner.
  • Disable the plugin on specific posts/pages (this shows a checkbox in the edit view of all public post types (except attachments) to disable lazy loading for an entire post).
  • Process the complete markup of the site.
  • A textarea to modify the default lazysizes config values.

* The unveilhooks extension of lazysizes supports more than video and audio elements, but you need to manually modify the markup to use it for:

  • Background images not inserted with inline styles.
  • Scripts.
  • Styles.

The plugin adds a noscript element as fallback for disabled JavaScript.

By default, the auto-modifying of the image markup does not work for images that are added using wp_get_attachment_image(), because there cannot be a noscript fallback added. You can enable the option to process the complete markup to make them work.

You can disable lazy loading for elements with specific CSS classes by defining them via the plugin settings (SettingsMediaLazy Loader options). Or use the skip-lazy class or the data-skip-lazy attribute. skip-lazy and data-skip-lazy also work on wrapper elements to exclude the wrapper and its children from being processed.

Instalação

  • Install plugin.
  • Activate it.
  • You can find the plugin settings under SettingsMediaLazy Loader options.

FAQ

Is there a way to manually call the plugin to modify markup of not-supported image functions?

Yes. See the following example that would generate lazy-load-ready output for the result of the not-supported wp_get_attachment_image() function:

global $lazy_loader;
if ( isset( $lazy_loader ) && $lazy_loader instanceof FlorianBrinkmann\LazyLoadResponsiveImages\Plugin ) {
    echo $lazy_loader->filter_markup( wp_get_attachment_image( 1261 ) );
}

To make it happen, you need to pass the markup that contains the image (or images) to $lazy_loader->filter_markup(). The if statement ensures that the Lazy Loader object is there and that it is an object of the correct class.

How can I disable/modify the inline styles?

Important: If you modify or remove the inline styles, also the style that shows the loading spinner is affected. So if you remove the styles or modify them without adding back the spinner styles, the spinner option will not work. I created a Gist with the spinner styles – just add them to your modification to make it work.

To disable or modify the plugin’s inline styles (except the style that hides the img.lazyload elements when JS is disabled, so only the noscript version is displayed) you can use the lazy_load_responsive_images_inline_styles filter. For example, to remove the inline styles, use the following code:

add_filter( 'lazy_load_responsive_images_inline_styles', function () {
    return '';
} );

If you want to modify it, you can do that like in the following code block (remember to include the opening and closing style tags for additions/replacements). The code modifies the duration of the fade-in-effect:

add_filter( 'lazy_load_responsive_images_inline_styles', function ( $default_styles ) {
    $default_styles = sprintf(
        '%s <style>:root {
    --lazy-loader-animation-duration: 600ms;
}</style>',
        $default_styles
    );

    return $default_styles;
} );

The CSS from the example are the default styles that are used by the plugin (without the loading spinner styles). The display: block for .lazyload is important for the aspectratio plugin option.

How can I adjust the lazy load threshold/other lazysizes settings?

There is a textarea in the plugin settings where you can insert custom settings for the lazysizes config.

The latest version of 7.0.0, after the update, the size attribute on the page will not occupy characters, resulting in the overall page deformation, it looks very ugly. Currently, I have disabled the plug-in. Later, I compared several other plug-ins. Although I was not very satisfied with the upgrade, I was still more used to it than other plug-ins. Ready to continue using this plug-in.

Tested many lazyloader, for me is that the most complete Lazyloader for WordPress right now. Thanks for the great support, wich you all the Best.

Excellent plugin, especially the option to process the complete markup was very helpful and made this plugin work for the custom built theme I was working with while other lazy load plugins never properly did. The only features I would still love to see in this is LQIP placeholder generation and insertion and combination with blurring or similar effect as described on the lazysizes github.

7.0.0 – 10.08.2020

If you depend on the aspectratio script of lazysizes somehow that came with the plugin, this release has a breaking change: it removes the aspectratio option (and the script) because it uses inline SVGs as placeholders that have the same effect without needing the aspectratio script.

Added

  • Disable core lazy load funcionality that comes with WP 5.5.
  • lazy_loader_attrs_to_strip_from_fallback_elem filter that allows to provide an array of HTML attributes that should be stripped from the fallback element in the noscript element.

Changed

  • If width and height attributes are present, the plugin uses an inline SVG to prevent content reflow – thanks to WP.org user lozula.
  • Updated lazysizes and its extensions to version 5.2.2.

Fixed

  • Problems with inline HTML comments in script tags. To fix that. inline script elements are no longer wrapped in HTML comments during markup processing to hide them from the parser. That was necessary for DOMDocument() but is not needed when using Masterminds\HTML5() (what Lazy Loader does).

Removed

  • Aspectratio option. The change with the inline SVG makes that obsolete.

6.0.1 – 01.05.2020

Changed

  • Added empty default value for the $content param of Plugin\filter_markup() method to prevent a fatal error that occurs sometimes when Lazy Loader is used with the Content Cards plugin.
  • Check if there is already a script with the lazysizes handle registered and deregister it before enqueuing own version. Fixes issue with Avada theme that includes own version.

6.0.0 – 31.01.2020

This release requires PHP 7

Added

  • Option to process the complete markup of a page instead of only parts of it via the filters (might take a little longer because the plugin needs to process more markup and, if your site contains HTML errors, lead to unwanted behavior, because the DOM Parser tries to correct that).
  • Option to define additional filters for the plugin to process.
  • Ignore patterns for skip-lazy class and data-skip-lazy attribute. Use them if you want Lazy Loader to ignore an element and its children. The disable-lazyload class and data-no-lazyload attribute will keep working for backwards compatibility. Adding the new class and attribute goes back to an initiative by Frank Goossens, developer of Autoptimize, who reached out to several devs of lazy loading plugins or plugins that also have a lazy loading feature to get a standard class and attribute across multiple plugins.
  • Added donation link to plugin header.

Changed

  • Updated required PHP version to 7.0.
  • Security improvements via escaping and specifying allowed HTML in setting descriptions. Thanks @igmoweb
  • Simplified Plugin\add_noscript_element() method. It just clones the source element now, instead of creating a new empty element and adding all attributes to it.
  • Check markup for [caption] shortcode to prevent duplicated images in Elementor.
  • Class properties are private now.

Fixed

  • Error with invalid attribute names in Plugin\add_noscript_element() method.

5.0.0 – 28.06.2019

Changed

  • Increased priority for the calls of the_content and post_thumbnail_html filters from 500 to 10001 to fix issues with the ShortPixel Image Optimizer. So if you use those filters and they need to run after the Lazy Loader, you need to increase the priority, too. This is the change that makes it a major version change.

Fixed

  • Audio shortcode stripped from frontend with all following content.

4.1.0 – 31.05.2019

  • Moved the add_noscript_element() method call to the beginning of the modify_*_markup methods. With that, there is no need to remove the lazyload class in the add_noscript_element() method, because it was not added yet.

  • lazy_load_responsive_images_inline_styles filter for modifying the inline CSS (for modification, you also need to add the opening and closing style tags). If you use the spinner option and the filter, you need to add the spinner styles, because they are part of the filtered CSS (Gist with the spinner styles used by default).
  • Option to display a loading spinner and define its color.

Changed

  • Use style inside noscript element to hide .lazyload images if no JS instead of adding a js class via JS to the html element.
