HOW IT WORKS
When anyone access to a WordPress page, plugin check for images already converted to .webp.
If one or more images have not been already converted, the plugin converts them immediately.
Converted images are stored in a ’subfolder of wp-content folder: wp-content/wpmowebp
If WordPress go out of memory try to add
to your wp-config.php
Enjoy your new WordPress Plugin.
