W3 Total Cache
Plugin crashes homepage on load with weird code (5 posts)

    When I enable W3 Total Cache on my site, it sometimes crashes my homepage on load.

    See screenshot to see what it does: http://flic.kr/p/dJpjgg

    This doesn't happen all the time, only occasionally.

    Any idea why this is happening?

    I have the same problem. Seems to me it has something to do with "Page cache". When I disable page cache, the plugin works fine. If I enable page cache I get the same kind of error.

    <!-- W3 Total Cache: Page cache debug info:

    It's really weird because I use this plugin on 5 other WordPress website's and they all work fine. I've tried different combinations of settings, but the site only breaks when page cache is enabled!

    Plugin author has posted that he is aware of it and fixing it a few hours ago. I have same issue, disabling Page Cache worked.

    My minify doesnt work but it's not a big deal.

    Thanks guys I'll check this out. I also noticed that it was causing this weird crash more frequently on the sites that I had Cloudflare enabled on as well. Must be the way that these two systems handle page caching.
