Speed up your site (BIG time!) — Quick Cache provides reliable page caching for WordPress. Easy-to-use (very simple installation).
I also have tried other cache plug-ins with various problems. Quick Cache worked without a hitch.
I had been messing around with W3 Total Cache trying to speed up my WordPress site. First Bytes were horrible with it though (normally between 3.5 to 4s) with W3TC installed. Deactivated that to try Quick Cache... and now, First Byte test come back 0.4 to 0.6s! Overall Load Time is also a little better, but the initial aspect is WAY better! Also, I'm hosting on the GoDaddy 4GH Network... so... nice. This was with their default settings btw... haven't tried playing with them yet beyond the standard.
I only hope this plugin continues to be supported. It would be a shame if this fell through the cracks. It is easy to set up, does not break anything and delivers pages incredibly fast. It is my go to plugin for website speed.
UPDATE - here's what I initially wrote about this plugin...
Just another professional-quality highly effective piece of code from these guys. Insanely simple to load and activate with ONE setting required: "Enabled/Disabled".
Yet, if you want to totally geek-out on the tweaks, they are all there with a MASSIVE amount of explanation. I learn more about WP internals just reading the comments of code written by these guys than the codex.
When I went to my live site to see it work, frankly I was floored. That page loaded so fast I thought I was in a localhost sandbox. And if you're ever in doubt about the cache status, there's a "Clear Cache" button on the admin toolbar that just clears everything.
I am going back to all my websites and replace other cache plugins with this one.
Now I have to say that I'm looking for a replacement. As far as I can tell, this one works fine, but features that I had in the past have now been crippled and are enabled in a "paid" version with the release in December of 2013.
As far as I am concerned, this creates a HUGE amount of ill will among people who loved this plugin and the developers. If it were me, I would have released a totally different product and kept this one at the same high level of quality that it used to be.
I have to say that I am really saddened by this.
This plugin is simple to install and rocks big time. Kudos!
This is the best cache plugin so far. I love it.
and for simme sites too of course...
It's efficient and very simple to use.
Thank you !!!
Excellent plugin! Wrote about it http://surniaulula.com/2012/12/01/wordpress-caching-and-plugins-for-performance/.
Well i tried W3 - as i noticed my wordpress site was actually quite sluggish. W3 didnt really work, and configuration was confusing. So i tried Quick cache. Wow is all i can say! Its so simple to configure, and the speed diff is really incredible, pages fly up now :-) just remember to log out, close browser then reenter - just to make sure your properly logged out. Once your back in though the differences are very noticable. Very good stuff :-)
It speed up my site by at least 50%. I'm impress.
