Official AMP plugin, supported by the AMP team. Formerly Accelerated Mobile Pages, AMP enables great experiences across both mobile and desktop.
The AMP Project is an open-source initiative aiming to make the web better for all. AMP enables web experiences that are consistently fast, beautiful and high-performing across distribution platforms. AMP formerly stood for “Accelerated Mobile Pages”, but now works completely across desktop and mobile. The official AMP plugin for WordPress supports fully integrated AMP publishing for WordPress sites, with robust capabilities and granular publisher controls.
Features and capabilities provided by the plugin include:
Please note that the Stories experience is being removed from the AMP plugin in favor of the feature being released as a standalone plugin. It will be available soon!
The plugin can be configured to follow one of three different template modes: Standard, Transitional, and Reader. In Standard mode you use AMP as the framework for your site, and there need not be any separate AMP and non-AMP versions. When configured to operate in Reader and Transitional modes, a given page will have a canonical URL as well as a corresponding (paired) AMP URL. The AMP plugin is not serving as a mobile theme; it does not redirect mobile devices to the AMP version. Instead, the AMP version is served to mobile visitors when they find the content on platforms such as Twitter, Pinterest, Google Search, and others. Reader mode only supports serving AMP for singular posts, pages, and other post types, whereas Standard and Transitional mode support serving the entire site as AMP.
With the official AMP plugin for WordPress, the WordPress ecosystem is provided with the capabilities and tools it needs to build world-class AMP experiences without deviating from its standard, flexible, and well-known content creation workflow.
To learn more about the plugin and start leveraging its capabilities to power your AMP content creation workflow check the official AMP plugin product site.
Readermode, it is strongly encouraged to migrate to
Standardmode. Depending on your theme/plugins, some development work may be required.
For the plugin’s changelog, please see the Releases page on GitHub.
In the website experience, theme support enables you to reuse the active theme's templates and stylesheets; all WordPress features (menus, widgets, comments) are available in AMP.
Reader mode templates are still available, but they are differ from the active theme.
Switch from Reader mode to Transitional or Standard mode in AMP settings screen.
Standard mode: Using AMP as the framework for your site, not having to maintain an AMP and non-AMP version. Mobile and desktop users get same experience.
Transitional mode: A path to making your site fully AMP-compatible, with tools to assist with debugging validation issues along the way.
Make the entire site available in AMP or pick specific post types and templates; you can also opt-out on per-post basis.
Plugin checks for AMP validity and will indicate when: no issues are found, new issues need review, or issues block AMP from being served.
The editor will surface validation issues during content authoring. The specific blocks with validation errors are indicated.
Each Validated URL shows the list of validation errors encountered, giving control over whether invalid markup is removed or kept. Keeping invalid markup disables AMP.
Each validation error provides a stack trace to identify which code is responsible for the invalid markup, whether a theme, plugin, embed, content block, and so on.
Styles added by themes and plugins are automatically concatenated, minified, and tree-shaken to try to keep the total under 75KB of inline CSS.
A WP-CLI command is provided to check the URLs on a site for AMP validity. Results are available in the admin for inspection.
