W3 Total Cache
Nothing in the source code - how to check whether w3tc is working (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I can't find any reference to w3 total cache in the source code so I would like to understand if it's working.

    I was using Wp Super cache+CloudFlare and my website was loading in approx 3 secs (in first view) according to http://www.webpagetest.org.
    I installed W3tc yesterday (WP Super Cache has been removed, CloudFlare is still working) and set it up but loading times through the same server raised up to approx 5 secs.

    If I disable the plugin, the time raises up to approx 6 secs, so I suppose it's working, but there are no references in the source code.

    Could you please help me to understand why the code is not appearing and how to check? Thanks

    The W3TC source code (in my experience) would generally appear at the bottom of the page you're checking source on. Are you sure the plugin is configured properly?

    Note: It will be hard to look at without the actual domain in question.

    Hi Damon,

    Thanks for your reply. I looked for the code in the whole source code, bottom included, but couldn't find it. Sorry about the website, I forgot to mention it: http://www.ottimizzazione-pc.it/
    Anyway, after a few trials I gave up with W3TC and switched to WP Super Cache. Strangely enough, I experienced the same issue: I couldn't find the super cache code (I also checked the bottom). I tried several times and apparently the plugin was working, again comparing the speed with and without plugin. Now Quick Cache is installed. I don't know what caused this issue. I'll try again in a few days both with w3tc and wp super cache, and will update this post. Perhaps you have already heard about similar issues from others and might suggest a fix.

    Strange. You might want to check with the plugin author (generally see that plugin in source as well). Don't have a fix, unfortunately, because those plugins aren't written by us.

    Note: Make sure you only turn on Minify options at one service & not both. If you have CloudFlare's minify turned on & at the plugin, you may see a conflict eventually.
