Support » Plugin: Gator Cache » Finally a Cache plugin for WooCommerce + Autoptimize

  • [Edit 2018]: still the best caching Woocommerce Products pages, even today. And, couple it with Autopotmize to minify files, and the speed is just incredible when working together. You have to try it to believe it.

    First, I am very impressed by the speed with a small (and relatively cheap) shared host web server. Instead of 2 to 4 seconds, a page loads in less than 0.5s.
    Second, it works out of the box with Woocommerce 2.4 and the Storefront 1.5 theme with no extra settings, provided you are really picky with the widget you really need to use. If all your pages can be considered as static pages before a customer put an order into the basket, Gator Cache works really well. If you use a widget that is constantly changing its content on every page (for example see the WooCommerce Recently Viewed Products), it is less efficient.
    Third, it works with WooCommerce Minicart (the small cart on the header updates itself and keep the speed).
    Fourth, really easy to install and to activate. You don’t have to be an engineer to control it.
    Five, look at the support forum, the developper is helpful and you see that he knows what he is talking about ! The plugin is not as popular as WP Super Cache and W3C Cache, but I think this developper has the knowledge to develop this very complex piece of software.
    Six, it is not in the FAQ or in the plugin settings page, but don’t forget to activate in your .htaccess file the Header set Cache-Control and ExpiresByType functions to control the browser cache, and you will add more speed.

    Great job, great support, simple settings, real results. Thank you.

    I’m a WP newbie. 🙂 Would you mind explaining how to do that?
