Support » Plugin: If Modified Since » Breaks sites, empty blank pages for normal visitors

  • This plugin caused our site to show blank pages often. The site would initially work, then after a reload it was completely blank. No errors or anything. The theme files failed to load, just completely blank.

    After investigation it turned out to be this plugin. Possibly broken due to be being so old.

    This description should scare you off anyway which I should guess what was happening to normal users:
    If the requested page has not been modified since the time specified by a search engine spider, a 304 (not modified) response will be returned without any message-body

    There are a few thing fundamentally wrong with this review, and with the spoiled attitude of WordPress users like you.

    First of all, sites don’t break, only one site broke, yours, so please use a more constructive title next time.
    Second, the description you mention should not scare people off at all. You should read more carefully and first try to understand what the If-Modified-Since header actually is, and what it does anyway.
    Third, the description also says that I’m very thankful for any help in finding and resolving issues with the plugin. You do nothing to help, you only complain.

    I am unable to reproduce the issue you mention on any of my sites, so I guess that it can be something with your theme or incompatibility with another plugin. Do you also use a caching plugin?

    Anyway, thank you for taking some of your precious time to place the review. And no, you don’t have to thank me for all the hours I voluntarily spent on creating this plugin.
