    Hey guys,
    using a plugin that includes converting images to webp format that allows browsers that support webP to display them.
    This replaces with <picture>.
    My question is this. Does your theme support this?

    Here’s more:

    I have a CDN. Si the rewrite rule won’t work in this instance.



    Hey Justin,

    As far as I know there is no support for the webp format yet in WordPress, if it will work or not with the theme I can’t say though. Maybe you could try it out on a test installation?

    Best regards,


    I have the same question. I tested it (with imagify) and it seemed to work for all elements I use except for the advanced layer slider…….

    This is what Imagify support wrote on the matter:

    The main thing that could break layout is changing tag to <picture> tag. If you have some CSS code that is strictly connected to and does not cover <picture> at the same time, removing from the source would cause that CSS to be innefective.
    I guess you have full control over your CSS code, which would make things easier, as you can simply append the code to cover “picture” as well.
    Alternatively, you can choose the “Use .htaccess rule” option from the plugin’s configuration page.
    I am not sure that I have that full control over the CSS?


    i suggest you to use webpexpress plugin

    It will show webp format in browser that support it and show orginal image in browser that do not support webp…best plugin ever made

    Just need to activate Imagic script…you can ask your hosting provider to do that for your account if it is not activated by default

    Hi Uros,

    Thanks for sharing, it’s much appreciated. Did you try that out and did you have any luck with it @terve?

    Best regards,


    I”m using https://imagify.io/documentation/my-images-are-broken/. If I use tags by <picture> tags option, it breaks full width slider. I also would like to use CDN, but if I choose rewrite rule, CDN doesn’t work. Catch 22.

    Hi Steve,

    I’m not sure I understand your question. Please open a new thread and explain the problem you are having a bit further.

    Best regards,


    Hi Rikard,
    it is kind of the same issue related to this plugin. So, as per my previous post, when the plugin is enabled, the mobile view fullwidth easy slider doesn’t work correctly. It seems to ignore the minimum height… I put links in below.


    There may be a “catch 22” with the .webp file type right now, WordPress doesn’t support it and while there are some plugins and “hacks” available to offer limited support, they do not work reliability, but more importantly Safari doesn’t support .webp and it is not currently in the development stage.

    Best regards,


    Hi Mike,

    thanks for the response. Because Rikard asked me to give more detail so that you could troubleshoot it better and the plugin author said that he has info you guys are working on it, so I created an amazon lighstail instance and made a copy of my website. You may appreciate, this is not a 2-minute job. Would you be willing to work with me and solve the problem for me?



    Sorry, my research points to .webp not being supported by WordPress or Safari and thus a brick wall beyond our support, but I will message Rikard about your post, as perhaps he has found more info on this and can help.

    Best regards,


    Thanks. The imagify plugin serves jpeg on Safari, so no problems as such with this. But it would be good if we could solve this. slider issue.


    For clarity, I have added a screenshot to the private content.



    , Sorry but making .webp work is outside of our support scope as it is not supported by WordPress and would require excessive customization to work, please use jpg instead.
    If you really want to use this file format please contact Codeable and follow the link to discuss your project and time frame with them.
    Sorry, I don’t wish to be rude, but I must close this thread now. Thank you for using Enfold.

    Best regards,
