Can I use it with WP Super Cache?

Yes! You just need to make some adjustments on WP Super Cache’s Advanced settings tab.

  1. In the Caching section, choose the option labeled Use PHP to serve cached files.
  2. In the Advanced section, enable the “Mobile Device Support” checkbox.
  3. At the bottom of the page, there’s a “rejected user agents” section. Add a line that says ‘ipad’ (lowercase, without quotes). Then click on the Save UA Strings button.
  4. Delete the cache. You can do this from the admin bar, or the Easy tab on SP Super Cache’s settings page.
