Disable Lazy Load

Description

Does one thing: disables WP Lazy Load feature.

Activate this plugin to disable the new WP Lazy Loading functionality (added in WP version 5.5).

Features

  • Lightweight – only one line of code.
  • Simple to use – activate and done.
  • No settings to worry about.
  • Easy peasy.

Why is this useful?

Because there are plugins that already implement lazy loading. So when upgrading to WP v5.5, there may be conflicting or redundant functionality. That’s not ideal. So with WordPress 5.5 and beyond, you can either remove your existing lazy-load solution, or more simply disable the WP-generated one. Or maybe you just don’t want lazy loading on some particular site. Whatever the reason, this plugin will do the job with a click.

Uninstalling

To uninstall/remove the plugin, visit the Plugins screen, deactivate and delete the plugin. This plugin makes no changes to the WP database.

Is there an “Undo” to reverse the disable?

Yes just deactivate the plugin. When the plugin is not active, WordPress will return to its default lazy load behavior.

My client has not yet added SSL to their site, so when I upgraded to WordPress 5.7 with default lazy loading, the srcset attribute got added to image tags with https protocols which broke the image links. I installed the Disable Lazy Load plugin and the problem disappeared. We still need to add SSL to the site, but for now the images have come back.

Marvellous plugin. Instantly solved my problems with a glitchy slider.

I don't know what WordPress was thinking by adding/enabling lazy load by default. It drives me insane with all of the problems it causes for me!! THANK GOODNESS for this plugin! Easy to add and "configure". Simply install and activate it on your WP installation and it works immediately. Thank you for a great and easy-to-implement solution! Keep up the good work!
