Object Cache support is amazing

I use this plugin especially for it’s Object Cache support. First I installed redis on my cloud server. This plugin detected it automatically. Then thanks to Powered Cache, after one click I started using redis in the backend of my wordpress blog.

Thanks for this great plugin 😉

I like the UX

I like how you design the UX. The simplicity and the flow is great! And of course I like it more because you add Object cache in it. Thanks! 🙂

The ultimate and lightweight

This Powered Cache Plugins Ultimate and Lightweight
But I asked for help…
How do I leverage browser caching of “.woff” fonts?

Previously, I used WP Fastest Cache. It worked fine, and later I searched for new caching plugins. Finally, I found this plugin “Powered Cache”. It’s great and lightweight, plus the features are great. I think after this I will use the “Powered Cache” plugin. I encourage you Developed further and I will promote on my website and tell my friends to use “Powered Cache”.

Absolutely Amazing Caching plugin

You have to change the name to AAC (Absolutely Amazing Caching)!!
I forced myself to register in order to give it a 5 stars review after i tested it!
I’ve tried more than 15 caching plugins (including the 3 big ones)

1) You just install it and IT WORKS with incredible speed.
2) Not like the other plugin that you have to spend more than an hour ajust the settings! (and im a developer)
3) The simplicity of the “simple cache” and the power of “W3 and Super Cache”
4) Automatically deletes cache after publishing or changing something.
5) Peace of mind…
Probably it will became the only plugin which will have (100% 5 stars!

** Suggestion: Create an option in settings to flush cache after posting (only in post and categories of the post and home page “not all cache”) and it will one of its kind!
** Billing suggestion: If you include this “option” above, and for those who dont need the pro version (we would gladly pay $5 for example after 20 trial period)
Thanks guys.

Excellent Cache Plugin

I have used many plugins but powered plugin is ultimate. Excellent work. It’s stable and do not have impact over those dynamic part of the content. I would surely recommend to give a try and you won’t get disappointed.
