Perfect ..
By , for WP 3.8.1

Your plugin is perfect and delivers what it promises, but it is conflicting with the IQBlock Country plugin, because when I generate the cache through the cache option cmputer everything is OK .. but when your plugin renew the cache, I get the setting lock plugin IQ block Country. My site just back to normal when I delete the cache. Please help me, because I want to continue to use your plugin.

Standard install on smaller sites
By , for WP 3.8.1

If you're running and small to mid size site forget monster installs like Total Cache etc. This is a mandatory install.
ALL sites I'm running score 93-100 on Pingdom speed test site.

So far so good

I've just installed it after removing (too complex for a beginner) W3 Cache which twice left me with the white screen of death. Lite Cache has speeded up my admin page, adding products etc that had recently slowed to a crawl with no cacheing installed.

Congratulations to the author, I shall make a donation.

So simple and does a fantastic job
By , for WP 3.6.1

Using Lite Cache with WooThemes Canvas, and I can't believe how easy it is to use. It speeds up loading of the site very noticeably.

Our site contains 16gb of media and thousands of posts, so I like the fact that this plugin doesn't try to cache everything at once — it caches each post once it has been viewed by a non-logged-in user. Very intelligent.

I combined Lite Cache with the Better WordPress Minify plugin, the EWWW Image Optimizer plugin, and the HTML5 boilerplate browser-caching code for htaccess.

The overall result is a MUCH faster page-load time. Very happy!

The Lite Cache Plugin Works Like a Charm
By , for WP 3.2.1

I have to be careful after my last rating post on another plugin, which also did just I wanted for my kind of website with one fatal flaw, it would cache 404 pages. That became an issue to me as I became aware that it stopped 404 headers from being delivered and delivered a 200 OK status. What Google and others like to call a "soft" 404. It also had a nasty habit of necessitating I re-cache the main page every time I logged out of admin (whether I would post something or not). Tried various hacks for a week, and all failed to stop 404 caching. (This bothered me more than Google's opinion, as it would over-ride my server software's anti-hacking function.)

Lite Cache is only slightly larger in size as the plugin I previously was using (WordPress Tiniest Super Cache), and the disk space used for the cache itself is nearly identical. It will *not* cache 404's and is not bloated with things I don't want or don't need. It is "Zen Simplicity" in using, and reduces response time dramatically from a standard database served page.

Thank you to the author of this plug-in! I would recommend this plugin to anyone who wants a simple, effective and powerful caching plugin. It is the best of all I tried (many) and, at least for me, outperforms, without "bugs", many of the most popular and publicized plugin.

5 Stars!

It just WORKS! and So EASY to setup
By , for WP 3.6.1

I tried several of the popular plugins, but they were overkill for my needs and quite complex. This was a perfect fit and it just does one thing. I'm very impressed at the speed improvement on my site. Thanks!!!

Simple but Effective
By , for WP 3.6.1

I haven't tested it extensively, but I am really impressed so far. It looks ultra thin, extra easy, super effective and most importantly really friendly to themes and other plugins. Thank you!

Just letting you know though that locally in debugging mode, the proposed .htaccess settings contain 2 notices:

...
# Mobile gzip
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Cookie} !^.*cache_disable.*$
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Accept-Encoding} gzip
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Cookie} !^.*(wordpress_logged_in_|wp-postpass_).*$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^.*(

).*$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !=POST
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !.+

RewriteCond C:\xampp\htdocs\wp\36\testbed/wp-content/cache/lite-cache%{REQUEST_URI}/index-mobile.html.gz -f

I haven't checked it online though.
