An update on my long running endeavour to visualise the effect on server performance of changes to my WordPress websites.
Since 2015 I’ve been developing a routine to compare the effect on server response times of the top 12 WordPress plugins. I’m just about ready to publish some results.

OK. so I’ve demonstrated that my iPad can’t display WebP format images, so I’ll have to try the picture tag method as a polyfill.
This is the sample HTML copied from CSS Tricks: Using WebP Images.
So let’s try displaying
oik-types-banner-772x250.webp to browsers that support it and the JPEG version for those that don’t.

The WordPress Gutenberg project’s plan for internationalization (i18n) and localization (l10n) of Full Site Editing themes (FSE) has not yet been formulated. I’ve written a proposal, entitled Internationalization and localization: translating templates and template parts, raised as Feature request #27402.
I believe that very little needs to be done to Internationalize a file containing Gutenberg blocks and HTML, and that it can be translated and localized into a statically delivered file in the user’s required locale ( language and country ) using the process described in the feature request.
This post briefly discusses some of the challenges of translating rich text content.
