Revo Optimizer: optimize Yootheme performance
This is just a quick blog post about the Revo Optimizer plugin. It is a performance plugin created especially for Yootheme Pro templates. In itself, Yootheme templates are already very fast and lightweight, but the last year or so, Google is aiming more and more for speed, with a focus on Page Experience and Core Web Vitals, and that is what this plugin is for.
Installation is easy, and a lot of work is done automatically. On top of that, you have a few options to customize processing:
For Joomla 3 and 4, there are some additional settings.
I noticed on some sites, I had to recompile the Less files in Yootheme (Style section, at the bottom) to make it work fully.

Note that it was not simply a matter of installing the plugin to get these results, but it sure helped for the last few percentages!
