FlexiCache is a fast, full-featured and flexible caching system which will improve the performance and availability of any WordPress site
I've used the likes of W3 Total Cache, WP Super Cache and others that pop up from time to time. FlexiCache offers the greatest flexibility when it comes to page caching which is what I only need personally. You've got "Expiry", "No-Store" and "No-Serve" options structured so neatly and efficiently that you could manage to accomplish almost any condition you would need.
Although there are issues of which some are critical that I just recently became aware of. I'm not sure if these are caused by recent changes from WP updates since the plugin's last update. Or maybe it's supposed to work that way and that there's a good explanation that I'm not aware of.
– Post/Page does not expire when new comments are posted.
– bbPress topics does not expire when new replies are posted.
Thanks for the brilliant plugin.
I just did a plain vanilla WordPress 3.5 installation on my valued shared hosting provider's server cluster.
As I have Memcache available, which is a pretty darn cool thing on shared hosting anyways, I thought I give FlexiCache a try.
Now I was a bit sceptical, because my hosting provider uses some non-standard ports and private IP addresses.
No problem for FlexiCache, as this puppy has user configurable settings pages allowing you to set the required parameters and then some.
And to top it off, FlexiCache has an unique standalone mode, enabling serving cached pages straight from it's cache without even going thru WP.
You need to be able to modify your .htaccess file for this, but most hosting providers will let you. And even better, FlexiCache does it automatically for you by pressing a button.
This little gem gets 5 stars from me.
Only 5, as they won't let me give 10.
