This plugin is fantastic!
By , for WP 3.6.1

I tried a lot of caching plugins before this, and I can say that in so many ways, Quick Cache is the best. I'm a pretty advanced WP user, but some of the other plugins were complicated and required a lot of thought and effort to get set up. And some broke my site. :-/

With Quick Cache, everything is explained along the way. So you know what to set and why you'd want to set things a certain way. Super user-friendly and easy to follow. And if you're an advanced user, there are plenty of options for you as well.

Ah, but does it work? Heck yeah it does! I use pingdom monitoring, and my site went from a pathetic load time of around 4-6 seconds to an average load time of 1.8 seconds and 1.2 seconds in the US! This plugin makes a huge difference in site speed - which is what it's all about, right?

So, two thumbs up here! Thanks!

Now, that is fast! I was reluctant to install it because it hasn't been updated in a while, but it certainly works for me.

I see someone has mentioned the permissions requirement for wp-config.php. That had me wondering, too, until I did this. I gave Quick Cache the permissions it said it required, activated and configured it. Then I set the permissions back so that wp-config.php was read only. Quick Cache doesn't seem to mind. If anyone knows why it should be a problem, I'd appreciate the info. Otherwise, I'm quite satisfied.

Snap!
By , for WP 3.6

That's how fast our sites are loading now. Snap!

I'm pretty impressed. This is by far the easiest cache plugin I've installed. Super simple. I installed it, activated it and followed the directions. Two minutes later I was seeing a major speed increase.

Very nice work!

KILLED MY SITE
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin killed my site two days before launch! In an attempt to speed up load times, I installed this plugin. It allowed me to view the configuration options. I left everything at the recommended settings. Now, I can't even deactivate it! My entire site is offline! Even my hosting provider and site designer have no idea how to fix this!

2nd Cache plugin I tried - this one actually seamed to work! Love it!

Really simple to use options but still has enough configuration for some advanced stuff

Cheers!

Really Breakage Without Compromise!
By , for WP 3.5.2

Breaks WP. Not compatible with a number of plugins, such as All In One WP Security. Not recommended.

Simple and Effective
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin will cache your site effectively and is easy to setup and maintain. My only complain is the UI is a bit funky. The "Clear Cache" button it ads to the top navigation doesn't fit in well and looks out-of-place. My suggestion is to integrate this with the UI of the admin bar so it appears part of the layout rather. That's my only complain (hence the minus star). Everything else works great!

Cut down load times by half
By , for WP 3.5.2

I love this plugin. I tried most of the plugins for cache support, but they were either to complicated or actually made my blog slower. Quick cache is easy to use and just works with basically the click of a button. It does have more advanced options for those who are technical enough to tweak and optimize, but I simply turned it on and let it be. Took about 1 second off average load time. May not seem like much, but the site was fairly speedy to begin with.
