    1. Hey Catalin,

      That is strange, can you please tell me which other plugins you are using with this one?

      1. Hello,
        Sorry for not replying in this time. Amp is working fine on my WordPresso blog. Great plug in. Thanks

  4. Thanks alot for this wonderful plugin. but please i noticed that at times the mobile redirect doesn’t work it still takes me to the desktop version.

    And then i will like to increase the number of post on the front page from 10 to about 15.

    I also noticed my google adsense does not display on operamini browser

    Lastly it will be much better if the comment box is on the amp version instead of redirecting to the normal version.

    I will be very grateful if you can answer this questions .


  5. Should my mobile version of my website automatically point to ? We want our mobile to look the same and only if you choose to go to amp do you get those pages

  6. How about a tutorial on the Design section? or “Launch Page Builder”?
    all I see is raw css or html code, what am I to make of that?
    are we to hand write our html to build an amp version from scratch?

    1. Yes, David, that’s a good idea.

      Can you please let us know what are you trying to achieve? so that I can understand, it will help me improve the plugin and the user expectation.


  7. Hi, I’m looking (but haven’t found) an editor to create amp page. – include images, the barest formatting (color, background, horizontal lines) etc. Am I missing something, or is that something not quite ready yet?

    I haven’t gone ‘live’ with amp until I can make the pages look a little better (especially an image).


  8. I used your plugin on my blog but images are not showing up what is the solution

    1. Hey Emran,

      Have you enabled Featured Image from the post builder? Like this

      Hope this will resolve your issue.

  9. Your AMP Plugin delivers more options than AMP Plugin By Automattic! I Have a question do I need to install Yoast glue plugin to validate this amp plugin of ours?

    1. Hey Subhasish,

      Great to hear that you liked the plugin. You did not need to install Yoast glue plugin to validate or work with AMPforWP plugin. Our plugin validates more pages, has more compatibility and more control than any plugin out there in the market.

      Thank you for writing to us,

  10. I have downloaded and installed AMP, Accelerated Mobile Extension; and AMPWoocommerce and my product page will not display any of the products. Any ideas on why?

    They are currently deactivated so customers can see the products and add to the cart but I really need a mobile version.

    1. Hey Kimberly,

      There are alot of factors, there mightbe conflict with other AMP plugins, make sure you have only one AMP (plus AMP from Automatic that we recommend). But if you could share your website url, so I can check what is the issue.

      Thank you for writing to us,

  11. Hi, I have installed the pluguin ana I think every thing is ok bur in google console appears the next message
    We did not find any Accelerated Mobile Pages in your site
    Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) are an open-source initiative to provide web pages that load fast and look good on mobile devices, even over slow networks.

    Perhaps some time must go on before Google woruld detect any change?

    1. Hey Xavier,

      Yes, please give some time to google to crawl and index your AMP pages and then it will update the Google Console information. Which usually takes 5-15 days depending on the crawl rate of your site and how often you add new content.

      I’m sure your site will rock with AMP.

  12. Hi,
    I recently activated AMP on my website
    Using this plugin. Everything looks fine, but some of the older post URLS are showing a lot of errors in Webmaster tool AMP section including
    Issue Severity, User-authored JavaScript found on page, Syntax error, Prohibited or invalid use of HTML Tag, AMP markup missing or incorrect, Invalid usage of AMP tags, Use of deprecated tags or attributes, AMP markup missing or incorrect, etc.

    There are 136 URLS with these errors and over 500 posts indexed. But when I test the error posts via AMP validator, there are no errors show. Even when I visit these URLs, there are no errors a such. The posts are all valid when I test

    Is there a way to stop these errors to show up in Google webmaster tools?

    Some of the examples with errors in webmaster are here:

    Can you give me a solution?

  16. You appear to have installed the AMP plugin incorrectly. It is currently installed in the amp-wp directory, but it needs to be placed in a directory named amp. Please rename the directory. This is important for WordPress plugin auto-updates.

    This is what nexus/wordpress is telling me. I looked online and it says to go to my plugin dashboard but I don’t have one.

    1. Hi hannah macleod,

      It will be installed in the plugin folder of your WordPress directory, not in the amp-wp directory, will you please provide us screenshots exactly where you are seeing amp-wp directory so that we will understand and let you know.

  17. Hi, it does not work, my website after installing amp looks awful.
    My side column doesn’t show and my header image is reduced to a fine line.

    1. Hi Silvia Spurway,

      Will you please provide us screenshots exactly where you are getting issues so that we will understand and let you know.
