Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » Not good, but not bad either

  • Hello! I wanted to replace 2 of the other WP Super Cache and Autoptimize with this plugin. I cannot say that the experiment was successful.
    The plugin optimizes html much worse than Autoptimize, and in the settings it is more difficult than WP Super Cache.
    The open for writing key directory WordPress also does not add optimism.
    I see that the authors of the plugin did a good job, but I was satisfied with the solution with WP Super Cache + Autoptimize.

    Can you please share more details about this so we can improve the feature?

    and in the settings it is more difficult than WP Super Cache.

    Yes, W3 Total Cache has a lot of settings for advanced configuration. Did you found the number of settings overwhelming or the UI of the plugin?

    The open for writing key directory WordPress also does not add optimism.

    Can you also please clarify this statement as I am not sure what you mean about this.
    Once again thank you for the review and more details would help us improve the plugin.
    Thanks!

    This is clearly seen when looking at the page code. W3 Total Cache leaves blank lines and tabs. Autoptimize hardlines the code into a line, which allows us to conclude that Autoptimize optimizes html better.

    W3 Total Cache, unlike WP Super Cache, does not have a simple “Optimize” button without an in-depth study of the settings. I have over 10 years of web development experience, but the W3 Total Cache settings gave me some trouble.
    More precisely, it would be much easier not to go into details, but to immediately get the result. And later, learn more about how the plugin works.

    Can you also please clarify this statement as I am not sure what you mean about this.

    During installation, the plugin reported that read/write permission was changed to the /wp-content/plugins directory.
