NOT 3.8.1 compatible...
By , for WP 3.8.1

As soon as WP did an auto update I was having problems.
As soon as I deactivated W3 Total Cache.. the problems disappeared...

I was lucky to have noticed, in admin mode I wasnt seeing it.. but I was building a forum and logged out to test it.. that's when I saw it. Logged back in.. it worked again.. that was my first clue. At first I thought it was the Revolution slider, because that's where it was most noticable.. but after hrs of trying this and that... it was when I deactivated Total Cache that everything was normal again.

I hope this gets resolved, right now it seems that Total Cache is not compatible with 3.8.1. I hate having it off and hope it doesnt effect my google ratings too badly with the slower download speed.

Shame about the bugs
By ,

I was really pleased when I put this plugin on my site - the Google PageSpeed response was better than with any other combination of plugins. And then I checked on a variety of browsers - and the only browser that rendered my site properly was Chrome. To cut a long story short, the problem is isolated to page cache setting - all is well when it's deselected! Which is not much use because that's where I got all the pagespeed improvements. When W3 is active and page chache is active, IE,Safari and Firefox only render the header and footer of my site. All else is missing!n It's a shame - this seems like a superb plugin!

internal error 505
By ,

Ho installato questo plugin su un multisite e mi è apparso internal error 505.
Oltre non vedere più il sito non riuscivo più ad entrare in wp.
Dopo che l'ho cancellato sono continuati i problemi, neppure facendo il backup del sito ho risolto nulla. Ci sono voluti 3 gg con il supporto dell'hosting... panico!!!

Couldn't get it to work
By ,

Couldn't get this to work with my WPZOOOM theme.
It did provide the messages below but this is too concise for me to feel confident I might try and follow it without ending up in a mess.

FTP credentials don't allow to copy to file /home/sites/bloxham.info/public_html/broadsheet/wp-content/advanced-cache.php
Please execute commands manually
or use FTP form to allow W3 Total Cache make it automatically.
