I am wondering if this is my imagination or this is an issue. When I run google page speed insights with hivepress/listinhive enabled, my page is flagged for not having next generation images deployed. I do have a child theme running, but for the purpose of this exercise I will be disabling it on my local, to show the issues I am using imagify to transform my images.
For the record, this is a test of my live site run locally and on page speed insights - you can see it flags my images
I will walk through the steps.
This is a screen shot of my performance on local with hivepress plugin/listing hive/and my child theme enabled. You can see next gen images are getting flagged. I have included a screenshot of my code to show that the images are in the code
Child Theme Eliminated
I am now running hivepress plug/listinghive without my child theme. Again next gen images are not being found.
Listing Hive Theme Deactivated - Running 2023
While I still have the hivepress plugins running, I deactivate the listing hive theme, issue still exists
Deactivate the Hivepress Plugin - 1.6.16 while Running 2023
The impact of the issue is greatly decrease, webp images are being recognized by pagespeed insights
Running ListingHive Theme, without Hivepress Plugin
Again, next-gen images are not being detected, but are being rendered
Listing Hive/HivePress Plugin running
Next Gen Images are not being detected
My question is, "is this a known bug with the theme? How can I get webp images recognized by google?
