Nitropack optimization levels settings

NItropack offers 5 optimization levels, one of them which is manual, allowing to set up manually all of the Nitropack options. For testing Nitropack, enable the “Safe Mode” and test the pages optimized adding ?testnitro=1 to your URLs.

Remove any plugins with overlapping features, such as lazy load or cache, to avoid issues. Also, check for incompatible plugins.
