How to null Gonzales – Premium optimization WordPress plugin

In the file gonzales.php find the function function check_gonzales() around line 755.

Add as the first line of the function:

return ‘random_string_here’;

(can be any string other than ‘gonzales-info’ or ‘error’)

All done – now the plugin will be activated.

The Gonzales menu doesn’t show up in the dashboard, only on front-end admin bar (this is correct behaviour and is how the plugin is designed).
