    The latest and greatest 5.8 adds WebP support. I’ve been using imagify extension and it used to work ok with .htaccess redirect, but now it stopped working on me.
    Replacing tags with <picture> tags option works, but breaks the fullwidth easy slider (and potentially other elements in the theme.

    Any suggestions of best practices would be appreciated!


    Hey Steve,

    Thank you for the inquiry.

    Would you mind providing a page showing the issue? You can actually use img tag for webp images. The picture tag is only used as a fallback for browsers that do not support the webp format, yet. The format is now widely supported on all browsers except on IE 11, but it does not matter anymore because WordPress already dropped support for IE11 just recently.
