Caused my company problems
By , for WP 3.9.1

Don't trust this plugin if you use Multisite WordPress.

It might have worked for the site it was installed on... BUT since I use WordPress Multisite Network this plugin caused all sites to redirect to the site which activated the plugin. I was not willing to figure out the plugin settings that caused it. But as soon as I removed the plugin all sites went back to normal. I had phone calls from complaining customers and lost sales due to this failed plugin!

Simply does not work (with WP hosted on IIS)
By , for WP 3.9.1

I host WordPress on my own server running IIS. First I had the problem that there was no .htaccess so I had to install a Helicon Ape. After that I could enable WP FastestCache.

WP Fastest Cache DOES indeed create a cache, I see the cache being created but when I look at a page's source (after refreshing it) I will always only see "<!-- need to refresh to see cached version -->" at the very end. The cached file says the ""<!-- WP Fastest Cache file was created in 0.330816984177 seconds, on 08-01-14 9:01:35 -->" thing but clearly THAT file never reaches the client.

So a cache IS being generated but it's never being used. The net effect of this plugin is therefore that it's actually making things SLOWER!

Also, even if I UNCHECK "Don't show the cached version for logged-in users" (so I want logged-in users to see the cached version as well) the logged-in user will NEVER get a cached version. It does NOT even say "<!-- need to refresh to see cached version -->".

I give it a rating of 1 since the plugin doesn't work. FOR ME. That is with WP hosted on IIS. If I would have it hosted on Apache, I might have given it 5 stars, I don't know. So my rating of 1 is NOT indicative of how well it performs under Apache, only for IIS.

Doesn't work, limited support
By , for WP 3.8.3

Tried on multiple sites and hosts, never got it to work. So there's obviously a conflict somewhere.

Support is minimal so moving on

Destroys formatting of landing page
By , for WP 3.8.1

I could only get the CSS to render on (only) my landing page by emptying the cache via this plugin. A more effective—and permanent—solution was to simply remove it altogether.

slowed site to a stop
By , for WP 3.7.1

After installing and enabling the plugin, every page loads in a few seconds, even on reload.
As soon as i disabled and deleted the plugin, site is responsive again.
Sorry, but this cache plugin was a disaster for my setup.

Severe mistakes with a special set-up
By , for WP 3.6

Hi team,

I just tried your plugin on a new blog (still under construction) and tapped into a severe mistake.

I have to explain my setup first, to make you understand the problem I found.

The blog poqueira.com is a three language site (English, Spanish, German)
running under:
poqueira.com (Spanish)
poqueira.com/en/ (English)
poqueira.com/de/ (German)

Further every language is connected to its own database!
Installing the plugin on all 3 versions I got a constant redirect from the English to the Spanish version with the cached page presented.

I could not even log in to the English version to switch it off, was always redirected to the Spanish login. Had to delete the plugin via ftp.

You should think in an update, though I doubt there are many webmasters using my described system - only a SEO-manic like me might use this kind of set up.

Kind regards,
Klaus Hanemann
