W3 Total Cache
[resolved] Yslow - Grade F on Add Expires headers (10 posts)

    Hi,

    I just installed W3 total cache and configured it after a guide I found. I must say the results are great: I currently get a 85 score from Yslow (previously had 75 or so), but apparently there are still thigns that need to be optimized.

    I get a "Grade F on Add Expires headers" from the Yslow Chrome extension, although I set up the Browser Cache Settings correctly (at least I think I did..). Here is a screenshot of the rowser Cache Settings I am currently using: http://i55.tinypic.com/16bd9jm.jpg

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Thank you,
    Tudor

    You should be getting a better grade for expires headers. I get grade A from Yslow in Firefox. Are you using a CDN? If so, have you uploaded everything? FWIW, I now have all 5 browser cache policies checked for all sections. I'm currently trying the settings suggested here.

    I also get a pretty good score on Yslow (86 points - grade B). No, I do not use CDN, because I don't want to invest money in that at this stage..

    What I meant was, I'm getting grade A for expires headers using W3TC, as well as for the entire page. You can use the self-hosted CDN option without spending money.

  6. Change your settings for cache control to expires max age public must revalidate proxy must revalidate

    You cannot because those are 3rd party.

    Just signup for a CDN with Rackspace Cloud Files... will cost you less than $5/mo. for a moderately visited blog/site. Plus W3tc has easy integration with it... see this video for help: http://youtu.be/JXUBU_WoF_8
