This page controls some administrative options for the Weaver Xtreme Plus version.
The main option in this section is the “Use Inline CSS” option. The Weaver Xtreme Basic version always emits the necessary custom CSS rules in each page’s <head> block. There is some debate in the SEO circles if having a block of CSS will hurt a site’s SEO ranking, with the majority seeming to believe that a large block of CSS in the header is a negative. Weaver Xtreme Plus instead generates a custom css style file when the theme’s options are saved. The keeps the CSS out of the <head> block, as well as eliminating the need to generate the custom CSS when the actual site page is loaded.
The other option is called Development Mode. This mode supports a few options that might make it easier to develop the site. When it is enabled, Inline CSS is used which usually will avoid browser caching issues. The other options are explained on the option page.
Many of the features of Weaver Xtreme Plus are implemented via shortcodes. While the settings and information about the Xtreme Plus Shortcodes are found on the Appearance→Shortcodes menu, this admin tab functions much like the WordPress “Installed Plugins” tab – it is mainly used to enable and disable the various plugins.
In general, Weaver Xtreme‘s shortcodes work very much like regular plugins. And like them, there is a small overhead when a site page is loaded. When a shortcode is disabled, it is the same as deactivating a plugin, and any overhead of using the shortcode will be eliminated. So, ideally, just as you deactivate plugins you’re not using, you can disable any Xtreme Plus Shortcod
