  • Same thing here. I have completely disabled the plugin.

    Agreed! We recently installed W3 Total Cache on our site and all our clients’ sites and had significantly improved speed across the board.

    We always do an update of a plugin on our own site first before clients.

    Before the update, our site scored a B in YSlow, a 91 on Google Page Speed and a 94 on Pingdom. Pingdom showed up having 34 requests to the server.

    Now, after the W3 Total Cache update, we’re getting a D on YSlow, a 74 on Google Page Speed, a 64 on Pingdom and Pingdom is telling us there are 75 requests to the server.

    Not acceptable at all!

    I un installed and deleted the plugin and installed version again. Things are fast again. I would recommend doing this

    I’m trying to get all relevant topics in the forum updated to help folks know why they having trouble with the update. It’s not the additional features, those have been tested with enterprise and paying customers week over week, it’s switching file management to use the WP FileSystem API at the suggestion of WP core developers, which is simply not working out obviously. So I’m sorry for the trouble, but the intent was to do things the “WP Way” and have everyone benefit from what the core developers have learned over the years. We will continue to work behind the scenes to that end, but for the moment the updated releases are reverting activation and file management BACK to the way things worked just fine before, once done, all of the great new features will work just fine for you. For those with MaxCDN as a CDN provider, issues there are with their updated API. For those with Cloudflare, issues there arise from updates to their new API (you know have far more control of your account from within W3TC and better integration with their platform). Thanks for using W3TC. It would be great if the folks that are doing such diligent support in this forum would reach out so that we can work together to help everyone, it’s my intent to get bugs fixed and bring all of the capabilities large company’s sites have to the WP community. I’d prefer if we’d do that together so we can get to v1.0 faster.
