“Scripts Dequeuer Backend” helps you dequeue WordPress backend scripts and styles from administration area. Backend scripts and styles can be easily dequeued (in controlled environment) without touching any code.
If you are running a website using WordPress, it is quite obvious that you might be using several plugins for site features and functionality. Many plugins use similar (or same) resources and it is possible that these resources are loaded multiple times in your WordPress admin. This may happen if the resource (JS/CSS) handle names are different.
For example, consider a scenario in which two or more plugins load same CSS file individually. (Say, fontawesome stylesheet). Or a case in which two or more plugins use same jQuery plugin with different handle names.
Such files are loaded multiple times, causing extra load in admin area. Each time you access any admin page; these files slow down overall page load time.
Admin page load time can be improved by removing such redundant files. Removing such files not only improves page load time, but will also help in preventing issues caused by conflict of redundant files.
The “Scripts Dequeuer Backend” plugin helps you dequeue such files easily with it’s simple and reliable interface. The plugin also takes care of not dequeuing system core files which are required for proper working of admin interface. With such controlled environment, one can safely dequeue
How it works
If backend scripts and styles are enqueued using native WordPress hooks (admin_enqueue_scripts, wp_print_scripts, wp_print_styles, etc.), Scripts Dequeuer Backend can detect all such scripts/stylesheets and list them inside WordPress admin area.
From detected scripts/stylesheets, you can select items and add them for dequeue. Upon saving changes, selected scripts and stylesheets will be dequeued and listed separately.
If a user selects system core files for dequeue, they are not allowed and listed as “not dequeued” files. However, the plugin has a filter hook for modifying list of files which can be allowed or disallowed for dequeue.
The plugin takes care of not dequeuing scripts which are required by other scripts. For example, if you select jQuery for dequeue, it won’t be dequeued if any other file still requires it. This is to prevent other scripts from malfunctioning.
Why use this plugin?
This plugin is intended for users who need a user friendly and reliable solution for dequeuing backend scripts without touching any code.
The plugin not only helps you dequeue backend files, it gives you a clear picture about
files used in backend, their sources and dependencies. If you are keen about admin area performance and optimization, you can definitely have this useful plugin in your collection. You will not regret it. Please also check plugin screen shots to get an idea about backend settings and features.
