Disable Lazy Loading


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).


  • 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.

More infos

Installing the plugin

Activate like any other plugin and done. There are no settings, works automatically.

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!

This plugin works great. The site immediately changed back to how it was before the wordpress version change. The lazy load feature was a bit too slow on my site to load images. It might suit some sites but i prefer all images if they are on the screen to be visible immediately.

I'd say add some more keywords to your plugin description as currently your plugin cannot be found through plugin search from within my WP install on the full plugin title. I had to add 'jeff' to the search query to get your plugin to show up. Maybe this 5 star review will help with that 🙂 This solves the problem that the Content Slider module from Ultimate Addons for Beaver Builder doesn't show its images in the slider. The whole slider is there in code, but WPs stupid lazy loading blocks the entire slider from showing its contents.
