WP Performance


WP Performance is a performance plugin that aims to make that “speed up” process a bit simpler by adding a variety of performance tweaks to your WordPress site.
This plugin generates static html files from your dynamic content, and it uses mod_rewrite to load cache files which is the fastest method.

Very powerful plugin.

Very powerful plugin. Works very good with blog sites. No caching issues at all. In some time, it will be one of most famous caching plugins.

Very good plugin!

Very good plugin, the first time to localize and recommend to Chinese users! 很好的插件,第一时间在WordPress大学汉化和推荐给中国的用户啦! 中文语言包下载地址:https://static.wpdaxue.com/img/2018/12/wpp-zh_CN.zip 解压后将里面的文件上传到 wp-content/languages/plugins 目录即可生效,同时避免插件升级时丢失语言。

Better than w3 cache

From 4.5 seconds loading time and C/D rating in Gtmetrix with w3 and various other caches I tried, this one is by far the best! On a heavy ecommerce and blogging site, they are instantly turned into A rank and became super fast! Highly recommend using this

Look promising

I love something simple and effective.This Wp-Performance look promising and I use it on web.
