I'm using Hummingbird and WP Smush Pro for site optimization.
I'm wondering if the test scores use/are based on Google Page Speed Insights? When I run the homepage through it I get roughly the same score and recommendations. However if we analyse a sub-page on the site with PSI we get a different (usually lower) score and more recommendations.
A lot of the fixes implemented through Hummingbird (minification etc.) work site wide, but I'm having difficulty with image optimisation.
A lot of the recommendations heavily affecting the score are 'Compressing and resizing ' for images. Manually fixing the ones given to me is no problem, but when we run sub pages through PSI we get more of these, and haven't found a way to get these in Hummingbird.
- Returns 3 minor image edits, exactly the same suggestions as Hummingbird
- Returns 10 or so image edits, some of which are major and do not appear in Hummingbird)
Is there a way to choose which page to analyse, or preferably a way to analyse the whole site?
I've read in the forums that the plugin gives a score for the entire site but if this is the case then why is it not returning all the relevant recommendations?
Some of the images in question are stored in the theme so I understand WP Smush won't cover these, but the main issue on the sub-page is from an image in the media library, which is being pulled into the page through a custom field and not hard coded, so instances liek this should be flagged in Hummingbird)
