How to Improve the Performance of your Website

Enabling compression features on your website can vastly increase the performance of your website.

This occurs by instructing the server to compress data sent to the browser. The browser then proceeds to decompress the data it receives.

This reduces the amount of data physically sent to your client browser resulting in a shorter data transfer time. It’s actually very easy to implement. Data transfer can be reduced by more than 80% overall.

Add the following instructions to the bottom of your .htaccess file in your website document root folder.

# Start of UK Cheapest Optimisation
# Gzip Browser Compression and Cacheing Recommendation
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/javascript
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xhtml+xml

ExpiresByType text/x-javascript "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access 1 year"
ExpiresDefault "access 2 days"
# End of UK Cheapest Optimisation

That’s all there is to it. Data between the server and the client will now be compressed, smaller and faster.

WordPress 4.2.2 fixes a cross-site scripting vulnerability – Update Now

wordpress_logoWordPress Version 4.2.2

On May 6, 2015, WordPress 4.2.2 was released to the public. This is both a security update for all previous WordPress versions, and a maintenance release for versions 4.2 and newer.

From the announcement post, WordPress 4.2.2 fixes a cross-site scripting vulnerability contained in an HTML file shipped with recent Genericons packages included in the Twenty Fifteen theme as well as a number of popular plugins by removing the file. Auto-updates and manual updates will remove this file, however manual installations and those using VCS checkout (like SVN) will not remove this file. Version 4.2.2 also improves on a fix for a critical cross-site scripting vulnerability introduced in 4.2.1.

The release also includes hardening for a potential cross-site scripting vulnerability when using the Visual editor.

In addition to the security fixes, WordPress 4.2.2 contains fixes for 13 bugs from 4.2.1, including:

  • Fixes an emoji loading error in IE9 and IE10
  • Fixes a keyboard shortcut for saving from the Visual editor on Mac
  • Fixes oEmbed for YouTube URLs to always expect https
  • Fixes how WordPress checks for encoding when sending strings to MySQL
  • Fixes a bug with allowing queries to reference tables in the dbname.tablename format
  • Lowers memory usage for a regex checking for UTF-8 encoding
  • Fixes an issue with trying to change the wrong index in the wp_signups table on utf8mb4 conversion
  • Improves performance of loop detection in _get_term_children()
  • Fixes a bug where attachment URLs were incorrectly being forced to use https in some contexts
  • Fixes a bug where creating a temporary file could end up in an endless loop.
