Nothing happend after intalling plugin (5 posts)

    I installed w3 toal cache on my site. The result:
    I got 56 points on google pagespeed. (Quite week.)
    The high priority problems:
    1. Allow Gzip compression
    2. Use Browser cache

    YSlow result: D (Overall performance 68)
    Red suggestions:
    1. Make fewer HTTP requests
    2. CDN
    3. Add Expires header
    4. Compress components with gzip
    5. Put JavaScript at bottom
    6. Minify Javascript and CSS
    7. Use cookie free domain

    This is why I intalled the plugin. I got NO result. The only thing I see is 3 extra lines in page source code:
    <!-- Performance optimized by W3 Total Cache. Learn more: http://www.w3-edge.com/wordpress-plugins/
    Page Caching using disk: enhanced

    May I know what you expect to happen after installing the plugin?

    You can check if "gzip" compression is enabled for your site. From what I see, it is enabled and its working. W3 Total Cache can not compress components that do not originate from your site, though.

    The compression is enabled.
    I expected better results in google page speed and YSlow.
    They both say that gzip is NOT working and I should turn it on.
    Either google and YSlow is wrong or this plugin is wrong.

    By the way:
    At the end of Page Cache tab the plugin writes:
    Enable HTTP compression in the "HTML" section on Browser Cache Settings tab.
    But it is ON already, so the plugin itself don't know it's own setting.

    @V.A.Lucky you should provide your domain name so it would be possible for everyone to check out your site's issues directly.
