Automatically detect above the fold images and exclude from lazy loading#21

This can be done manually with currently available WP Rocket settings, but manually doing this across very large and complex sites, particularly when there’s no good class to target in templates quickly becomes a headache.

Your competitor appears to do ATF exclusions automatically, so why not also in WP Rocket?

This indeed would be very useful. If it would be too hard maybe excluding images can be done based on the CSS class it’s using. Most of the time it’s a banner image with the same class.

Better to have two options where we can define number of images to exclude for desktop and mobiles

Because the layout changes in mobiles and may need to exclude lesser number of images while the same can be higher for desktop.

Perfmatters offers the option to exclude above-the-fold images from lazy loading. :)

I’ve found that sometimes I need to manually add an exclusion for logos, and sometimes not. But it would be great to just have an option that does this without having to think or take extra steps.

Google has announced that the Page Experience update (including Core Web Vitals) for Desktop will be rolling out in February 2022. We DESPERATELY need this feature for our sites to be able to pass LCP on desktop.
