Minify HTML

Minifying HTML is the process of removing unnecessary characters from the HTML source code without changing its functionality. This reduces the size of the HTML file helping to have a faster loading time and providing a better website experience for visitors.

Exclude URLs

Sometimes you may need to exclude pages from RapidLoad optimization. RapidLoad makes this easy through the use of URL exclusions. Exclusions can be added in the General settings section of the RapidLoad plugin.

This option will accept full paths, relative paths, full domain names, and even wildcards. Some valid URL exclusions include

  • /terms-conditions/
  • /order
  • /privacy-policy
  • /category/*/product
Trailing slashes are observed and matched exactly. For example, the rule /terms-conditions/ will match the URL, but will not match the URL .

Query String

RapidLoad ignores query strings by default. This means that /order and /order?id=123 are considered the same URL and generate only one Optimization Job. Enabling the Query Strings setting tells RapidLoad to consider URLs with query strings as separate URLs and generate an Optimization Job for each of them.

On sites that dynamically create many URLs with query strings, like Woocommerce, enabling this option will greatly increase the number of jobs in the queue.

Queue Options


  • By default, RapidLoad will queue 4 available jobs every 10 minutes. Queue speed can be increased or decreased. The following intervals are available:

1, 2, 4, or 8 jobs every...

  • 1 minute
  • 5 minutes
  • 10 minutes
  • 20 minutes
  • 30 minutes
  • 1 hour

16 jobs every...

  • 30 minutes
  • 1 hour

Disable Auto queue

If you prefer to manually add pages to the job queue yourself, check the box next to Disable Auto Queue in the Advanced Settings. New jobs will need to be added via the +ADD button at the top.

Disable Re-queue

RapidLoad automatically re-queues URLs to be optimized if there are any errors found. Enabling this option will stop those URLs from being automatically re-queued.

Legacy Options

Legacy Dashboard
This dashboard only shows the Unused CSS optimizations and Group by pages rules

Once you entered Legacy Dashboard you will have the RapidLoad Unused CSS optimization table and Rules table(If Group by pages enabled).
