    I am hoping to speed up my WordPress sites by displaying images in Webp format, but having problems trying to use the Webp Express plugin “webp-express” (which I saw recommended in several articles).

    I tried it on one of my lesser used sites but kept getting files quarantined time and time again. I ended up running the BPS Pro Setup Wizard again then restored quarantined files but ended up with images not displaying at all.

    I wondered if you have any recommended plugins (or other strategies) for implementing Webp with BPS Pro active on a site, as this is becoming more essential to improve page loading times.

    Thanks very much.

    I just tested the WebP Express plugin.  On setup when clicking the WebP Save Settings button (save settings and force new htaccess rules) these setup actions occur > 2 new htaccess files are created, the BPS UAEG htaccess file /uploads/htaccess file is updated and a new /wp-content/webp-express folder is created.

    Rewrite rules were saved to the following files:

    C:\xampp\htdocs16\demo9/wp-content/themes/.htaccess (themes)
    C:\xampp\htdocs16\demo9/wp-content/uploads/.htaccess (uploads)
    C:\xampp\htdocs16\demo9/wp-content/webp-express/webp-images/.htaccess (webp folder)

    You will need to create a single file exclude rule at the top of the Quarantine page for the /themes folder htaccess file.
    You will need to create an AutoRestore wp-content folder exclude rule for the: webp-express folder. Go to the AutoRestore > Exclude wp-content Folders page > add this folder exclude rule: webp-express > save your settings.
    You will need to either deactivate the BPS Pro Uploads Anti-Exploit Guard feature and resave your WebP plugin “save settings and force new .htaccess rules” button or do the steps below to add the WebP plugin’s htaccess code into BPS Pro UAEG Custom Code.

    Manually adding WebP htaccess code from the /uploads/.htaccess file into BPS UAEG Custom Code:

    Turn AutoRestore Off.
    Click the WebP “save settings and force new .htaccess rules” button.
    Go to the BPS htaccess File Editor page.
    Click the Upload htaccess File tab.
    Copy the entire uploads .htaccess file code.
    Click the Custom Code tab page > click the UAEG htaccess File Custom Code accordion button.
    Paste the uploads htaccess file code into the CUSTOM CODE UAEG text box.
    Click the Save UAEG Custom Code button.
    Run the BPS Pro Setup Wizards.

    Thank you so much for a rapid response and so detailed as well.

    Will follow the instructions and fingers crossed it works for my site configuration.

    Really appreciate the help & of course a great plugin.
