Installing WordPress Plugin WP-AMP 0.2 to make your WordPress site AMP compliant.
So now you know WordPress Plugin WP AMP version 0.2 is the plugin which supports Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) project that has purpose to provide mobile optimized content that can load instantly without any development activities to your current theme template files. Basically it is an one-click installation but requires more advanced customization to make it fully matching your current front-end experience as it comes with an out-of-the-box template.
Once the plugin is activated, all posts on your WordPress blog will output dynamically an AMP compatible HTML version. You can check this by adding
/amp/ to the end of your permalinks. Permalinks are the links or urls to an individual blog post in which they are pivotal for linking to an exact blog entry. However, if your blog does not have custom search engine friendly permalinks set up yet, you can do the same by adding
?amp=1 to the end of your permalinks. WordPress offers you the choosing permalink style which suits your information architecture best but we do suggest using a logical structure for best experience and optimization for search engines.
There are two ways that can be used for installing the WordPress WP-AMP plugin. We suggest always downloading plugins directly from the plugin library within your WordPress admin rather than downloading the file to your local drive first. There is no added value to do so and you only increase security risks. If you use the suggested way, the plugin will be safe from any virus.
Just log in to WordPress dashboard and click ‘Plugins’. Then, click ‘Add new’. After that, type the keyword “AMP html“. and click ‘search plugin’. Many plugins may appear but choose the official AMP plugin by Automattic as they are currently the only official affiliated partner to Google. After that, click ‘install now’ and ‘active plugin’. Finally, the plugin has done to be configered to work well.
