Use oik-unloader – deactivate plugins on demand – to improve the performance of your WordPress website.
The oik-unloader plugin is a general purpose WordPress performance improvement plugin that deactivates plugins on demand.
Use the oik-unloader plugin to improve the performance of selected URLs by deactivating plugins that aren’t needed for that URL.
- Active plugins unloader/loader – oik-unloader/active-plugins
Dynamically alter active plugins per URL
For each URL where you’re trying to improve performance, you tell it which plugins you don’t need to be activated. It will dynamically deactivate these plugins, which means they won’t get loaded. In other words they’re unloaded. This should make your server do less.
There is also the chance that the site visitor will notice the browser do less because
- the site is no longer delivering content to the browser
- which means the browser doesn’t have to do things with that content:
- render HTML,
- load and display images,
- style content with the CSS
