This should be called, buggy beta headache!
By , for WP 3.6.1

The worst plugin I have ever dealt with.
W3 Total Cache is the better choice

Don't use on multisite!!
By , for WP 3.6.1

Just like many before me this plugin brought my site down for 4 hours.
It causes erratic behaviour (works fine for an hour or so, then all hell breaks loose)

Totally Lack Of Documentation With CDN
By , for WP 3.6.1

Nothing about this plugin works when trying configuring with CDN via Amazon S3. It's frustrating to see that it's more complicated then it pretends to be. No documentation. All the steps are missing.

Wp-Super Cache
By , for WP 3.6

This plugin just caused the site to crash. There was plenty of disk space but it got beyond the PHP automatic cache limit.

Had to increase the Cache limit in .htaccess to fix the issue.

Doesn't appear to be an option to occasionally clear out the cache to ensure that the latest versions of the site show quickly.

This plugin is booby-trapped to destroy your wordpress site
By , for WP 3.6

I uninstalled it, and it stripped the "?php" code from the beginning of my wp-config file. This caused my site to simply publish the entire wp-config file, including my username and password, to the web.

I figured out what had happened and fixed it, but I have to strongly urge anyone not to use this plugin. I imagine the booby-trap is accidental, but that doesn't matter. This is an unsafe plugin.

Not that great
By , for WP 3.5.2

I started using this plugin a few months ago and it worked for the most part. It helped with SEO rank(page speed) and other things like making the site faster.

With that being said it has caused more problems than good. I have had my sites get the white screen of death over and over again. I have done the usual disable everything and find whats causing it and nothing comes up except the caching plugin itself.

Some people have good results with it, but I personally had not good luck. I would not recommend this to a friend.

Bricked my website
By , for WP 3.5.1

Completely bricked my website (including the login admin panel). Tried deleting the plugin in the web space, but this had no effect.

Nightmare. Avoid avoid.

White pages and corrupting files
By ,

I had been using this plugin for a couple of years. After updating to WP 3.5.1 my site displayed white pages. The problem went away after deleting this plugin, however using the delete command for this plugin in the Admin panel corrupted my config file by replacing the first line. I traced the line to this plugin and replaced the config file to get the site working again. I tested a couple of other cache plugins and they all worked fine, so I believe the issue is with Super Cache, so I am now using Quick Cache.
