The WordPress toolbox you need

Machete is a WordPress plugin that solves common annoyances:
header bloat, tracking codes, maintenance mode…

Our Philosophy

If you really need it, at least make it light

Every single component of Machete is enginereed so it has the lightest possible footprint.

Each file is only loaded if needed. At the left you can see admin code is only loaded when you are in the in the admin panel.

Machete Modules

Lots of great tools, more to come

WordPress Optimization

Reduces much of the legacy code bloat in WordPress page headers. It also has some tweaks to make you site faster and safer.

Cookie Law Warning

Machete cookie law warning bar is really light, it won’t affect your PageSpeed score and plays well with static cache plugins.

Analytics and Custom Code

Google Analytics tracking code manager and a simple editor to insert HTML, CSS and JS snippets or site verification tags.

Maintenance Mode

Customizable maintenance page to close your site during updates or development. It has a “magic link” to grant temporary access.
