Intermittenet White Screens
By , for WP 3.8.1

Anybody else seeing this? Go to megaproxy and page pluus fine, then refresh and white screen. Driving me bonkers. MAXCDN also thinks this plugin in might be the cause.

Any ideas useful.

Killed my website
By ,

After installing the plugin and configuring the basic settings suggested in the plugin description my website and wp-admin screen both went blank, white screen so I no longer had access to my dashboard. I'm not a coder so I couldn't do anything and I had to call my host to ask them to delete the plugin from my account. I then had to reactivate all my other plugins to get my site up again. The support guy at my hosting company told me they had already blacklisted this plugin.

Broke my website!
By , for WP 3.8

I installed the plugin.

Then I uninstalled it because I like the cache that has a "Clear cache" button at the top of the menu bar.

When I uninstalled it my website complately broke with the error message:

Great speed, when it doesn't generate white blank pages...
By , for WP 3.8

In desperate need of a good cache engine for a non-profit on cheap hosting. So far this is the only cache engine that seems to actually work and when it does it's spitting out very fast pages with a good preload tool so the pages are ready to go when a user vists. However, unfortunately, none of that matters because it frequently results in the whole site turning into blank white pages and an inability to access anything, including admin pages. Only way to "fix" it is to turn off caching in the wp-config.php. Have tried uninstalling, reinstalling, etc. Searches reveal hundreds of people reporting the same problem... no idea what is going on here or why this issue continues to haunt so many people?

more trouble than it's worth
By ,

Every time I make a change to a widget area or other non-post area, I have to take time out to edit and update the page/post. It does not reduce page load time in my experience, just increase the time it takes to update content.

Tried it, killed my site a soon as it was enabled
By , for WP 3.7.1

As soon as I switched caching on with this plugin the site went all blank including wp-admin. I had to go to wp-config.php manually and remove its settings.

Looks nice but ....
By , for WP 3.6.1

It is nice if you don't use a refresh from Chrome or InternetExplorer.
If you do so the theme used is gone with the wind.

The idea is fine but like this you don't need it.
