WordPress Plugin Set Up

Follow this guide to help you get started with TwicPics image optimization on your WordPress website.

1. Set and get your TwicPics domain

Create your TwicPics account

If you don’t have any TwicPics account yet, you can click here to create one for free.

Once your account is created, TwicPics provides you with a domain that has the following syntax {subdomain}.twic.pics , with {subdomain} corresponding to you personal subdomain.

Note that your TwicPics domain will allow the plugin to handle your image optimization on WordPress.

Connect your TwicPics domain to your WordPress website

This step will be automatically handled for you in the future versions of the plugin.

On your TwicPics back-office, from Domains section, connect your TwicPics account to your WordPress website.

To do so, click on the button Add new path.

A new window opens, in which you must set the URL of your WordPress website as a path of your TwicPics domain, as well as the Source URL of you WordPress website images.

Say your TwicPics domain is https://my-sub.twic.pics/ and the URL of your WordPress website is https://my-wordpress.com/, then the path https://my-sub.twic.pics/https://my-wordpress.com/ will point to your WordPress website https://my-wordpress.com/, as the source of your images.

2. Install the Plugin

Once the configuration of your TwicPics account is done, install the plugin like you would do for any other plugin on WordPress.

3. Plugin Settings

If you use other image optimization or lazy-loading plugins, please disable them or any related features before moving on the next steps.

Now the plugin is installed, please follow these last steps:

  • Activate TwicPics plugin from the list of plugins.
  • Navigate to TwicPics settings to enter your TwicPics domain, so the plugin can be able to know who you are. You can find these settings at two levels on your WordPress admin menu: at the top-level menu and at Media sub-level menu.
  • Also, you can define a max width at which your images will be intrinsically resized (default value is 2000 pixels).
  • Save your settings.

That’s it! The plugin can now deliver real time responsive images to all of your WordPress website visitors.
