    Very hard for the novice person especially in multi-site. Very hard to implement. Broke the main login page. It may work for a single site.

    The plugin works great and is easier for any novice that has installed and configured plugins before. However, you should also read the instructions and literature before setting it up, you can't just click a button and expect things to work magically.

    goodness....something went wrong. This is not a point and click type of plugin. It does work well with single sites, although it will take some time to implement. I always implement on a dev site before using on a live site. I believe the issue with MS is to NOT
    network activate. And if you are needing to work on the site you may need to activate and reactivate the plugin for changes to occur. Unfortunately all caching plugins do not play nicely with itheme backup buddy or many other backup plugin solutions.
    Did you try to ftp the plugin out. Also check the htacess there will be something in there also. You will need to go through each file to see were things were installed. I am sure the developer may be able to tell you where to look.
    ALSO
    There was a security issue that the developer has fixed. http://blog.sucuri.net/2013/05/w3-total-cache-and-wp-super-cache-vulnerability-being-targeted-in-the-wild.html

    This is a very talented developer and unfortunately this caching issue is very tricky at best and also depends on your server and if you are using some type of cloud proxy service.
    Only use it if you are totally done developing your site and check for known plugin conflicts.
