This is Malcolm Peralty here from PressTitan and this is The WP Minute, Episode 42

On Tuesday, September 18th at 5:30 PM Eastern, I’ll be hosting a Live YouTube Q&A where I’ll answer as many WordPress related questions as I can. So please come and submit your questions or I’ll be answering questions on the WordPress.org support forums.

Code in WP has an article out that compares three popular image smushing plugins for WordPress. At PressTitan, we typically use Smush Pro, but the author didn’t find it to be as effective as ShortPixel. Check out the article and decide for yourself, but you should be using an image optimization plugin.

Over on WPMU, they talk about their free plugin offerings, which includes a free version of Smush. I recommend checking it out if you are looking for plugins to optimize your WordPress website.

Lastly, there is a post on WP Beginner that walks through how to move from WordPress.com to WordPress.org. They lay it all out really well and don’t hesitate to draw attention to the potential costs of moving.

That’s it for today’s WP Minute, thank you all for watching.
