Social Bookmarks for WordPress – Optimized!

By | 05/04/2008

I recently found about that nice plugin, Social Bookmarks 4.0.65 for wordpress.

The plugin is very nice and easy to implement.

But the size of the pictures it includes in the pages/posts, it far beyond what it really need, and that causes higher page loading times! there are a total of 51 png files (icons for different bookmarking sites) and they size around 70 KB!!

I decided to optimize the png files and make them lighter to get faster loading pages.

And I achieved a total size of 13.6 KB which is around five times lighter!

So now, not only the plugin is working very nice, it’s also optimized by me for faster operations.

One more thing to be done is to make this plugin use jQuery for its scripts and effects. Well, that is to be done by the author himself, cause I am no scripting guru!!
