Load Gravity Forms stylesheets in page head

Gravity Forms normally loads its stylesheets in the page head, where they belong. It does that only on pages which have forms, which is nice. If you use a widget to host your form, however, it can't detect that until it renders the widget... too late to load the stylesheets in the head. At that point, it just pulls them directly into the page body.

Use Autoptimize effectively

Keeping your WordPress website fast can become pretty tricky once you start installing plugins and off-the-shelf themes.

Luckily, there's the handy Autoptimize plugin to help you sort all of that out.

One job it's particularly good at is helping me keep track of plugin compatibility testing.
