Can you tell me more about Quick Count PHP caching plugins support?

Caching plugin support is tested with WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache and my custom caching solution where Quick Count automatically clears cache when necessary. If you use some other caching plugin you should manually clear cache every time you change any of Quick Count options, modify shortcode, sidebar widget options or similar. PHP caching compatibility is achieved using AJAX to load and operate Quick Count.
