    Hi,

    Is there a way to check that the pages are served from the cache?
    I tried to modify the content of a cached page on the file system but the change was not picked up when i reloaded that page in the browser which is not what I expected

    Thank you for your help in advance

    Depending on your settings it's not as simple as that. If cache files are created on your server, your server is using them.

    yes cache files are created on the server.

    I just thought that if I made a content change in the cached file then that change would appear when I reload that page in the browser

    thank you for your prompt response and your awesome plugin

    It depends on the caching mode. Due to the way garbage collection works, it's not as simple as that. Old cache files still exist until garbage collection deletes them.

    Would be nice if there was a stats page inside WordPress that gave some stats like: "100 pages cached, 252 cached pages served" etc.

    I'm guessing for most blogs half the cached pages are never viewed a second time, before garbage collection. So for those rarely accessed pages, why cache them in the first place?

    Or is the time it takes to store and erase a cached page relatively insignificant?

    Unfortunately, it's more complicated than that. I don't think I could I could give even a partial answer with less than 300 words, sorry.
