I have used this plugin with a SIGNIFICANT performance boost... it really does make things a lot faster. However, I have noticed that it makes my membership site completely useless due to its interference with Wishlist Member (my membership and content protection plugin) and Simple Press, my forum plugin.
With wishlist member, the registration process simply doesn't work. When someone registers for the site, it simply redirects them back to my homepage and nothing really happens... no new user account is created. I noticed that this problem seems to go away when I remove "page caching". The user is then correctly redirected to the "Confirm your email address page."
I have a couple of questions:
1. Is there any way that I can change page caching options to not interfere with wishlist member? The wishlist plugin is really the backbone of my site... it helps to manage my emails and obviously makes sure that my paid content stays protected.
2. Is there any way that I can get w3 total cache to COMPLETELY EXCLUDE any of my forum page or subpages? The forum is reasonably simple so I dont think that it really needs to enhancement of w3 total cache. I would be willing to change options within the w3 plugin to make it work, but i just wonder what kinds of other issues will pop up. If I could exclude my forum page entirely, I would be happy with that.
Thank you all very much for your time!
