Core Enhancements, Performance

You need more control over the compressed output of Joomla! ?

Look no further.

By default this plugin disables the gzip compression of the html output of your Joomla! site for the User Agents of Facebook and LinkedIn (those are the BOTs that scan your site everytime someone posts a link to Facebook or LinkedIn).

Also you can specify easily your own User Agents (BOTs most of the time) that feel happier with plain uncompressed html!

The Bots of Facebook and LinkedIn have a cap on the size that they scrap, which in many cases have undesirable effects with compressed pages.

Install, activate and forget about it...

Just perfect. Install it and it works. So simple.
Ease of use
Couldn't be more easy. Just install and enable it.
There is no reason for support. It simply works like a charm.
I didn't need any.
I used this to: my sites in combination with Phoca Open Graph Plugin and the results are perfect.

Works like a charm

Just install the extension and Facebook is able to read my OG easy!
Ease of use
Just Install, activate the plugin, and FB integration works..
I used this to: Facebook Integration
I did what you suggestested for Ana and put in the first order for execution. It doesn't work. It did just once with another k2-item.
Ease of use
install and put it in No 1 of execution - easy. Not easy to understand the use for other bots. Unfortunately there is no documentation.
None - maybe in this forum.
I used this to: Facebook Open Graph - I am looking for an extension which can handle that images of k2-items are pulled through to facebook.
Owner's reply: It will never work if you have plugin System Page Cache ENABLED! This is not a fault of this plugin, since having Page Cache enabled means that many things are already cached and will not be recalculated!

Does not work for Facebook bot, when GZip is enabled in Global configuration.
Ease of use
Easy. Just one activation option.
I used this to: Joomla 3.3.6 website
Owner's reply: The only thing, in order this plugin to work as it was intended, is to make sure that is the first in the order of execution. So in the right hand side in the plugin you get an option with a label "Ordering", all you have to do is select the first option "Order First". I hope this solves your problems!

Works great

Social Share
Lately Facebook implied a maximum amount on the pages that their scrapper will get. This might bring blank shared posts on Facebook, if the page is bigger than 40kb and compression (Gzip) is enabled. This plugin corrects that by disabling gzip, only for Facebook requests. !!! Please use the new one:

A tiny content plugin that create and cache a few different sized images on the fly. If the server supports WebP then all the images processed by the plugin will be automatically available also as WebP. Finally the plugin will update the markup to use the well established and supported HTML5 picture tag. Which types of images are supported? Only jpg and png Does it also take care of the intro a...
