A very fast caching engine for WordPress that produces static html files.
thank you very much, excellent plugin
This seems to work, but if I hadn't had access to detailed directions for setting it up, I wouldn't have had a clue what to do with this. It's intimidating to set up.
The rating would have been 5 stars, except for the intimidation factor hehe
I installed the plugin and enabled mod_rewrite caching. Cached version of pages will be created and delivered in the future, speeding up the site.
But, on every new or updated post all(!) the files in the cache directory are deleted (with pre-cache enabled) or renamed to *.needs-rebuild (without pre-cache).
The "Clear all cache files..." option is disabled, of course.
Frequently crashes one of my sites with the white screen of death, and also screws up the appearance of the admin panel.
Makes my site ridiculously faster.
Here are some page load time stats.

Before Super Cache:
After enabling Super Cache, in fresh-out-of-the-box/default mode:
Like I said, really fast, but annoying that it's buggy.
The caching seemed to work reasonably well, but the conflicts with PHP's APC and frequent encoding errors forced me to replace it with W3 Total Cache.
I tried proposed fixes that required updates to PHP.ini
apc.filters = wp-cache-config apc.filters = wp-cache-base apc.include_once_override = 0
Which corrected all of the Fatal Zend errors, but I was still getting an encoding error on every 10th page load or so.
After deleting the plugin, those went away as well. Since I found numerous complaints on the web about these two problems, I just decided to delete the plugin and try another.
This plugin is a perfect example why I support open source software. Even when I code something, I make it open source.
THANK YOU guys. There are a lot of customization option advanced users like us.
EDIT: There should be link to "Clear Cache" on the Admin main menu. Specially for students like me who experiments a lot with code. It takes so much effort to just to clear it each and every time I edit something!
While I have been enjoying the plugin. We've run into some, bugs and the plugin authors have not been accessible.
I don't find that there's a lot of people who can offer help with this plugin.
We've been waiting days in the forums for responses to rather mundane questions, without any response. If this continues, we may just find another answer.
this helped my sites speed a lot, but i had to tweak too many of my plugins to get it to work fully with everything, so in the end i uninstalled it. but it's clear it is great so i would recommend to others as long as you test it with your plugins first
Super cache is a good plugin but i think W3 total Cache is better.
The plugin does what it says. I think the W3 Total Cache is better but both have disabled the image slider on my website and tweets do not show either. I'm probably not going to use a cache plugin for these reasons but it's probably useful for most people.
