WP Super Cache Compatibility Questions (2 posts)

    Hi, I'm totally new to this plugin and I read about this plugin throughout internet for last 2 days and I see mixed reviews. So I thought that I can ask these questions here since this forum is dedicated to just this plugin before I start using it.

    I'm planning to install 0.8.6 version (the latest).

    * Will this plugin interfere with Adsense code? I saw some sites claiming Yes and others No. Please clarify.

    * Will this plugin interfere with Google Analytics code? Again some say, it would. Please clarify.

    * When I do a new post in my blog, the home page of the blog gets updated to show the latest post first. So whenever I post something new, will the home page (index.php) get cached automatically? Or do I need to do that manually or wait until the caching expiration time?

    * I have the random posts plugin installed and it shows the random posts on the sidebar. Once a page gets cached, would it always display the same posts that were cached first?

    Could someone experienced with this plugin answer these questions, please?

    Thanks, JK

  2. * Will this plugin interfere with Adsense code? I saw some sites claiming Yes and others No. Please clarify.

    No, it would not interfere. Nothing to clarify; those are not dynamic elements in your blog's HTML. That static code will be in the HTML copies that the WP-Super-Cache plugin creates.

    * When I do a new post in my blog, the home page of the blog gets updated to show the latest post first. So whenever I post something new, will the home page (index.php) get cached automatically? Or do I need to do that manually or wait until the caching expiration time?

    Never had a problem with this in the past. So I believe the answer is Yes, it will invalidate the old copy for the home page and create a new static cached copy. If Donncha's reading this he can clarify. :)

    * I have the random posts plugin installed and it shows the random posts on the sidebar. Once a page gets cached, would it always display the same posts that were cached first?

    Yep, it would always show the post from the time the cached copy was created. So the cached copy would not change, it would be static until the cached copy is removed or overwritten with a new copy.

    For dynamic content you should use Javascript; not really an option for displaying random posts.

    WP-Super-Cache is for giving your web server relief under heavy load, such as being Digg'ed or Slashdotted. If you have the CPU time and your pages generate in a reasonable amount of time and are transmitted reasonably, then you may want to leave it off until you need it.

    You can see how long your web server takes using a tool like Pingdom Tools. This will give you a baseline for un-cached web performance.
